One way to beat the Texas heat: Build your own lake. This suburb sits along manmade Lewisville Lake, a perfect spot for swimming and boating.
The town also offers plenty of job opportunities; several big firms have headquarters in nearby Plano, and Dallas is just 30 minutes away. Homes are cheap, with an average sale price of around $135,000.
The downside: Few retail options and no historical downtown area. --S.M.
