Home to more than 100,000 people, Allen is a buzzy suburb boasting beautiful nature spots, picturesque neighborhoods, and plenty of commercial enterprises. It’s a straight shot to get here from downtown Dallas, thanks to the Sam Johnson Highway. In fact, commuters will find they can get to the city center in about half an hour.

Allen’s spacious parks mean residents always have a place for recreation and socialization. Allen Station Park, near Allen High School, is popular for skateboarding and wakeboarding, not to mention a host of other sports and activities. A handful of golf courses and hiking trails provide options for those with more laid-back hobbies.

Boasting everything from small cottages to palatial brick masterpieces, Aledo real estate offers up options for a range of budgets. Many of the larger homes were built in the last few decades.
