WOW ~ Rowlett, TX ended 2013 with a bang! The City on the Lake & on the Move was named "America's Top Small City to Move To" by MOVOTO!!!

Rowlett TX is just a hop, skip & a jump from Downtown Dallas (~20 miles) and since the completion of the Eastern extension of the George Bush Toll Way & the DART Light Rail Blue Line Extension, Rowlett TX is literally minutes from everything!
Rowlett has seen great growth and has still been able to hold on to their small town feel which really brings a sense of Community to it's residents.
