Wichita Falls, Texas was named one of the Top 10 Cities for Working Parents by Smart Asset in Feb. 2018. A low cost of living, great schools, and an average commute time of only 14 minutes makes it a great community to enjoy all that North Texas has to offer. The Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex and Oklahoma City are both only two hours away. Home to Sheppard Air Force Base--the largest training base in the USAF-- the economy of Wichita Falls is strong and diverse.
