A close suburb of Fort Worth, Flower Mound can safely say that its is part of Texas' most valued community. Fort Worth is the fifth largest city in Texas. It finds itself nestled snuggly a point in a metropolis triangle composed of Arlington, Dallas and itself.
The city of Fort Worth was founded in 1849 as an Army outpost on a cliff overlooking the Trinity River. To this day, Fort Worth and its close hamlets manage to embrace their western heritage and their cowboy like architectural and design.
Following the "Treaty of Bird" (a document between the native Indian tribes and the Republic of Texas in 1843), a line of Army Forts were established around the Texan/Mexican border. A way to preserve a level of safety for ranchers and settlers in this area. A conjunction of posts that were pivotal for the defense of the land during the Mexican- American war in 1846-1847.
To this day, Fort Worth, one of the first outpost in the area is known as "where the West begins."
Following that bloody skirmish, Fort Worth began to deal in cattle and became a thriving mercantile town. The ranchers and their rich industry used the town at the nucleus for their "cattle drives." A way-station to not only sell their herds but properly spearhead them to other climates. It rapidly started gardening a reputation as a town on the outskirts of civilization that was onto itself quite reputable and refined.
The borough and its suburbs started edging out; hotels, casinos, bars, general stores, hospitals and the comforts of big city life in the American Frontier became a standard by which Fort Worth built its reputation.
Flower Mound, meanwhile, decided to skip most of the turmoil and progress, finding its way to the future by a completely different manner. Established "off the books" in 1840, Flower Mound began as a rural religious community. A presbyterian secluded society that for more than a decade later was kept up by a steady stream of pilgrims and a dwindling population. It wasn't until the tail end of the 1970's that Flower Mound began to carve out a niche in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The completion of the Grapevine Lake, plus the addition of highways that lead directly to the area's most affluential International Airport started to take its toll. In less than 30 years, Flower Mound became one of the most densely populated suburbs in the region.
Flower Mound has always garnered praise and laurels. Its municipal government has managed to bestow upon it a degree of sparkle that few, if any, suburbs in the area have acquired. Among its highest honors, Flower Mound maintains a vigilant love for nature (after all, the hamlet was named for a 12.5-acre (5.1 ha) hill brimming with wildflowers - big bluestem, little bluestem, and Indian grasses). A love that has cultivated over 50 parks and open air venues in the region. Its second trophy to fame is its continued investment in public network trails.
In 2012, Flower Mound was ranked number 8 as one of Dallas' best suburbs.
The investment and wealth of career opportunities by local business and conglomerates (Best Buy HQ and Stryker Communications employee over two thousand), its academic excellence, plus its proximity to two of Texas premiere metropolises have also bequeathed Flower Mound with other national acclaims.
In 2006, author Bert Sperling named Flower Mound one of the "Best of the Best" in his book Best Places to Raise Your Family. He further elaborated that: "Flower Mound is the best places for big houses on a budget.”
The Fort Worth area has a humid subtropical climate. A system that onto itself suffers the tweaks of a desert environment. Still, despite the heat in other close by regions, Flower Mound experiences the traits of a micro-climate. Its situation in the basin of the Trinity River, plus its proximity to the Grapevine Lake and Marshall Creek, encourage an onset of light breezes on balmy summer days. Winter are cold, with extreme morning chills in January; the temperature dipping below zero. Summers are hot and scorching. Flower Mound experiences lightning fast precipitations, and quick thunderstorms (some of which can evolve to tornadoes).

A palate that has suddenly discovered it has chewed, bitten or partaken more than it could. Southlake, just across the lake, is one of the areas top epicurean sanctuaries. A turn of the speedometer and a new collection of miles on the family station-wagon, at you'll find yourself neck deep in Dallas and Fort Worth. Your belly and imagination marveling at the possibilities.
Flower Mound is a peaceful quaint, people of the earth, type of community. Its nightlife is family friendly and PG-13. Yet, due to its location, Flower Mound has become the proverbial pilot fish. A district stuck in the underbelly of a school of after-hours Great Whites; sharks known as, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Southlake.
Flower Mound has a series of secular high schools, private institutions, and Christian academies. In January 2011, North Central Texas College opened a community college campus in Parker Square in Flower Mound.
Flower Mound, Fort Worth and Dallas are passageways of tourist worthy landmarks. Both cities figuring high in the nation's patriotic soul. Fort Worth, due to its cityscapes and its rural embrace of its western part is a jumbled bag of awe-inspiring points of interest.
