Not a lot of crime that I have noticed. I love the education system and there is plenty to do in the city.

Firewheel Mall is great! It has everything from shopping, dining, movie theaters and even toy stores.

Rowlett has easily accessible stores, gas stations and plenty of convenient and variety of places in one little town

The only thing I dislike is the constant construction of storage spaces and ruining the lovely fields it used to have.
