D Magazine recognized, “Over the past two years (Murphy’s) been ranked as #6 and #3 of the best suburbs in the DFW Metroplex.” Located halfway between Plano and Wylie on FM 544, Murphy offers a small town environment with “big city” convenience. Situated only 20 miles from downtown Dallas and 30 miles from DFW Airport, this town is ideal for families looking for the best of both worlds.
