Some of the ways Rockwall is different from and similar to other Dallas area cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

The City of Rockwall is located in northwest Rockwall County, approximately 25 miles northeast of downtown Dallas and 56 miles east of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Rockwall's proximity to downtown Dallas and the north Dallas business center is likely to make Rockwall residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
