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

Sunnyvale is located in east Dallas County, approximately 15 miles east of downtown Dallas and 47 miles east of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Sunnyvale's proximity to downtown Dallas and both the Las Colinas and north Dallas business centers is likely to make Sunnyvale residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
