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

Wylie is located in south central Collin County, approximately 26 miles northeast of downtown Dallas and 57 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Wylie's proximity to both the Las Colinas and north Dallas business centers and downtown Dallas is likely to make Wylie residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.

Local schools

Most students living in Wylie are eligible to attend Wylie ISD schools ... the attendance boundaries of Lovejoy ISD, Plano ISD, Garland ISD and Rockwall ISD also extend into Wylie
