No matter what, someone will always want something you have. From my past 13 years here being stolen from my garage multiple times, to the rude residents of the town and finushing off with the horrible police. Even if you come home late from work during the night they will HUNT you to raise their own quota. If i can change a single persons mind of moving here. Please dont, it may seem nice but its a fake delusion. After the first 3 weeks you will notice that any other plave in north Texas is a better use for your investment. In flower mound they will run the middle class out, there have been many evictions due to a low income family, and then treat bridlewood and wellington like their saints. Not even to get started on the heroin rings constantly with the school district. Ive lost several friend due to these in flower mound. Never move here.

This is a depressing town to live in. Rude people that only care about themselves and their money.People think it has great school and that's a lie! The kids are miserable and most of the parents are out of touch with what's going on. The cost of living is ridiculous. People pay stupid amounts just to rent before buying. The owners of these properties just scam you because they know you can't find anyone else that won't. Its a town that sucks the life out of you and its hard to get out once your in! The justice system is just out to trap kids so don't move here!!!! People think its such a upscale town. Its right by Lewisville! Ate you kidding me? The run down, gang looking scum are around the corner. You have to sit in it when going anywhere outside you little flower town circle of fake!

One thing you would want to know if your black is be super careful driving out at night, because you will get pulled over by a cop. Why is this? well because black people to them look supicious. This black guy gotten pulled over 4 times in one week. They dont like black people and the flower mound judge is on their polcing side. Knowing this as a business owner i would relocate my business to a highly diverse part of the city. Flower Mound isnt it. However apart from the system the folks are very nice and pleasant. Please think twice before you decide to open a business and or live in this town. Research Flower Mound before you attempt to get herassed.

Flower Mound is safe, with good (not great) schools and quiet family communities. If that is all you are looking for in a city then FM may be perfect for you.

I have to disagree with this website's "average summer temperature" of 82 degrees. NO WAY. Just last summer we had over 30 days straight of 100+ degree weather and factor in nearly 50% humidity...it gets miserable. I moved here from Phoenix and the summers are more tolerable there IMHO. Also considering the summer season here goes on for close to 5 months...well, you get my point I'm sure.

I consider myself somewhat of a food snob so I have to say the restaurant selections in FM is subpar. If you are OK with fast food and chain restaurants then it may not be an issue for you. We find ourselves driving 30-60 minutes for a nice meal with some authenticity/variety. For the higher rent/mortgage expenses there should be easy access to so much more without having to drive to Dallas or Fort Worth.

Speaking of Dallas/Fort Worth, Flower Mound is about equidistant from the 2 which can be a big plus for job prospects. It is not the most ideal commute but is doable. Unfortunately, public transportation falls desperately short so you will likely be driving yourself anywhere you need to go. And the traffic here is horrendous. The drivers are not courteous at all. Don't believe me? Google worst places to drive survey 2007 and you will see DFW ranked #2, second only to NYC. Seriously, the drivers here would sooner let you crash into a wall then let you merge. I've never seen anything like it.

I find the schools highly segregated in FM (and TX in general). I am a Caucasian and still find it odd that nearly 97% of my son's school is white. I prefer more diversity, as how does one become culturally competent otherwise? Also if you are not a particularly religious family you (or your children) may be somewhat of an outcast. I find FM families to have higher than average religiosity. These concepts also find their way into public schools.

Overall FM is a good community but we are researching options for relocation.
