Big city living isn't for everyone--but at the same time, urban areas certainly have their perks.

There's the culture, the food, the arts, the food, the energy, and you know, the food. But there are drawbacks. There's traffic, expensive parking, expensive housing--pretty much, expensive everything, depending on which big city you're looking at.

But that's where the suburbs come in--they have all of the benefits of being near big cities, without actually having to be big cities.

Of course, not all suburbs of Fort Worth are created equally, which is precisely why we set out to find the best ones. So without further ado...

Here are the 10 best suburbs to live around Fort Worth for 2022:

  1. Southlake
  2. Highland
  3. Coppell
  4. Argyle
  5. Haslet
  6. Trophy Club
  7. Colleyville
  8. Keller
  9. Flower Mound
  10. Double Oak

What's the best suburb of Fort Worth? Southlake ranks as the best suburb of Fort Worth for 2022 based on the most recent Census and FBI data. If you happen to be a resident of Southlake, you're probably not too surprised to find it on the top our list.
