Tucked in between Dallas and Fort Worth, Euless prides itself on being a mid-size city with a small-town spirit. The community rallies around Trinity High School’s football team, and for good reason: The Trojans won the 2015 district championship, boast a 14-year record of 165-25, and were even featured in a Gatorade commercial. The high school also earns points for being the most diverse public high school in Texas—a fitting accolade given Euless’ significant Asian and Hispanic communities. Students at Trinity High can also take specialized classes in robotics, cosmetology, and pre-med at the Buinger Career and Technical Education Academy, which opened in 2014.

The Euless Public Library offers a number of specialized programs, including STEM learning courses for kids, movie matinees, and free counseling sessions for small business owners through the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE). For the outdoor minded, Euless has an 18-hole world-class golf course, an aquatic park, and over 300 acres of parkland. Although there aren’t many major employers within the town itself, its proximity to Dallas (a 30-minute drive) offers a lot of jobs. Indeed, Euless’ unemployment rate is only 4.1%. All of this comes with affordable real estate: the typical home here sells for $200,000.
