I love the escape from the hustle and bustle of the city when I get home. Living in Burleson, Texas has a lot to offer especially for families. It's a very quiet town that's about 30 minutes from Dallas. My love of the "country" and friendly neighbors is what made me settle down in Burleson.

The best areas in the city are Pirates Cove Fun Zone and Lost Oaks Winery. We took pictures last year at Lost Oaks Winery and the photographer captured the perfect backdrop of the green country scenery. Pirates Cove is perfect because I love to swim with my kids. Pirates Cove has some of the best slides and is the perfect way to escape the summer heat.

Living in Burleson has its perks especially with the low traffic, low crime, and highly rated schools. There are several school options including private, public and charter schools. Burleson has been the best decision for my family!
