Duncanville: A Small City with a Big Feel

Duncanville is a small city with a big feel. The best thing I like about Duncanville, Texas is the diversity. Duncanville is a suburb of Dallas and is about 15 miles away, but there is no need to travel to Dallas. Duncanville offers a lot for families including Joe Lake Pool where you can enjoy fishing or sightseeing.

Duncanville has a lot of restaurants from Cajun to Mexican authentic places to eat. One of my favorite places to go is Paint Nite at the Pelican House Restaurant where you can enjoy delicious drinks, dessert, paint and socialize with friends.

We are known as the city of Champions, but I like to consider my city a place that is welcoming for all and has a lot to offer single individuals and families. If you love to shop for good finds, try DuncanSwitch Street Market which is in downtown Duncanville. I love that I don't have to travel far to find different crafty items!
