Despite its proximity to Dallas/Fort Worth, Flower Mound strives to maintain its small-town feel, and it attracts high-earning commuters looking for top-notch schools and safe neighborhoods. Named for (you guessed it) a mound of wild flowers that still holds a place of honor, the town offers miles of biking, walking and equestrian trails, as well as camping and fishing on Lake Grapevine. Golfers can play year-round on two courses, and a performing arts theater and chamber orchestra provide local culture.

Housing prices may be near the low end of our list, but if you want fancy, you can find 7,000-square-foot homes in gated communities.
