Southlake, Texas is a newer city in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In the late 1800’s there were several communities living in the area that is now Southlake, but the city was not founded until 1956. The community slowly built a school which was named Carroll school, and they put in a gravel road that is now Southlake Boulevard. In 1929, the construction of highway 114 began, which today is a major throughway through Southlake and the neighboring cities. When the city was incorporated in 1956, there were a few grocery stores, some farms, and a cotton gin. Southlake slowly grew from a small town into a city throughout the 1960s, but it wasn’t until the Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Airport opened that the city saw large growth.
Today, Southlake is known for being one of the most affluent cities in the country. Carroll ISD holds exemplary ratings for all of its schools, and the Carroll Dragons athletic program is highly ranked and celebrated in Southlake. People travel from all across the metroplex to shop and dine in Southlake Town Square, and to find adventure at the Bob Jones Nature Center.
Southlake Town Square is a large, yet walkable shopping center that offers retail, restaurants, and entertainment for all ages. There are several green spaces to sit and enjoy a coffee from Starbucks, or an ice cream from Paciugo. There are many shopping centers expanding off of the square, including new additions like Trader Joe’s, REI, and more. Many events are held in the square in front of the city courthouse – Art on the Square, the Stars and Stripes, and the Christmas tree lighting are events that are anticipated all year long. You can also catch a movie at the Harkins Movie Theatre in the square after dinner and some shopping.
