It also has the twenty-foutth lowest overall crime rate of all Dallas suburbs. Some of the ways Little Elm is different from and similar to other Dallas area cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Little Elm is located in central west Denton County, approximately 36 miles north of downtown Dallas and 48 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Little Elm's proximity to DFW International Airport and both the Las Colinas and north Dallas business centers is likely to make Little Elm residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
