Close to the city, but not too close - Balch Springs, Texas 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 16, 2018) I have lived in Balch Springs, Texas for a year now! This city is within Dallas County and it is a quick 15 miles to Dallas, making it the perfect location as I am close to the city within having to deal with city traffic and congestion if I don't want to! This is perfect for me ...Read More because I don't like city driving and the business of being in the city, but I love to be close by to enjoy all of the fun aspects of living in the city! The weather is perfect here, not having to deal with harsh winters but also being in Northern Texas so not having to deal with quite has harsh summers and if I were further south.

One of my favorite things to do is go to the State Fair, which is close by each year in Dallas! There are also many amazing restaurants close by that are amazing! All of Tezas has amazing food to be enjoyed by all, and that has been nothing but true for Balch Springs, as well. Overall, I have really enjoyed living here in Balch Springs! Read Less
