DeSoto is at the heart of community.
Enjoy living in a city with an engaged, diverse population where the cost of living is low and the quality of life is high. The City of DeSoto provides ample opportunities for you to live well and become part of our All-America City.
You can have that small-town feel even while you are close to the big-city attractions of Dallas. Just a 15-minute drive north lets you enjoy the art museums, cultural events, concerts and sports events. Afterwards, you can escape the traffic and noise as you head home to DeSoto.
City government is civic-minded and provides numerous services, facilities and events to foster a tightly knit, stable community. With a cost of living in line with the national average, DeSoto has much to offer in recreation, housing, healthcare, education and more. In fact, generation after generation of hard-working families choose to stay in our city or return after college to build a career and family.
