Coppell is a suburb of Dallas that is considered one of the best places to live in Texas. There are plenty of parks, lakes, and amenities to accommodate all families. Top rated schools and close proximity to the Dallas- Fort Worth Airport make this small town a true gem. If you’re thinking of making Coppell your home or simply passing through for a visit, make sure to check out these 3 places.
Old Town Coppell
In the city’s historic district sits Old Town Coppell. There you will find homes, small businesses, and restaurants all nestled together in a beautiful walkable community. At the center sits a welcoming town square which serves as the location for the Coppell Farmers Market. If you love to buy locally grown fresh produce, check out the Farmers Market every Saturday from 8am-Noon. There’s even an interactive water fountain for the kiddos to enjoy. The community is very quaint and the food options are endless. Visitors will enjoy the true “old-town” look the area has, with a vintage-esque fire station and train station.
Riverchase Golf Club
One of the cities best kept secrets is conveniently located in Coppell within 10 minutes of DFW Airport. With their competitive daily pricing (Tee times as low as $18) and beautiful landscaping, it is a favorite for locals and travelers. Many even say it is a surprisingly tough course due to its lack of trees and water in play on 14 of the 18 holes. But once your round is complete, you will be able to relax at the 19th hole and enjoy the football game on the 112 inch video wall or one of the seven 65 inch TV’s. Visitors will enjoy the beautiful views and the lovely homes lining the course.
Hard Eight BBQ
So your just passing through Coppell on your way to the airport and you did not have the opportunity to check out anything on the list above. Don’t you fret, because you have just enough time to pick up some Texas BBQ from Hard Eight before heading home. That’s right, the “Texas Style” straight from the pit authentic BBQ that the locals rave about. You will not want to miss out on the tender brisket or the ribs that fall right off the bone. If you’re feeling froggy, try the bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers. Do yourself a favor and check out this neighborhood favorite and family-owned restaurant that has been around for years. You will not regret it.
