What Makes Rockwall a Great City?
One of the fastest growing communities in Texas, Rockwall’s healthy economy and strong infrastructure support an exceptional community and an extraordinary quality of life. Thanks to affordable housing, amazing neighborhoods, green spaces, and public schools that are among the best in the state, you have a hard time finding a reason not to move your business and your family to Rockwall.
Rockwall is located 23 miles east of Dallas on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. Rockwall offers a progressive business culture blended with a simple, yet affluent, way of life. We are conveniently accessed by four major highways and four municipal airports—23 miles from Love Field and 33 miles from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
Rockwall was named after natural rock walls that were discovered when early settlers began digging wells. Since those days, through new community leadership and a sense of responsibility to 150+ years of history, Rockwall has undergone a process of growth and development. The population today exceeds 40,000, and the present industries include those in defense, technology, manufacturing, packaging and others. An important catalyst in Rockwall’s growth has been the Rockwall Economic Development Corporation (REDC).
Rockwall has many exciting districts, and one that shines considerably would be the Harbor. Bordering Lake Ray Hubbard, the Harbor has grown into a thrilling location that attracts locals around the DFW area as well as staycationers. This district delivers a range of preferences for any occasion, from fine dining, weekly concerts during the summer, and the beautiful lakeside view. The Harbor also appeals to many businesses with the new TrendHR tower that provides exclusive Class A office space and the Hilton Dallas Rockwall Lakefront’s meeting rooms, conference spaces and recption ball rooms. While less than a minute away is the luxurious Hilton Dallas Rockwall Lakefront hotel with a generous amount of conference room space to accommodate any business gathering.
