Duncanville ... the only place where you can experience small town Texas and still take advantage of everything Dallas/Fort Worth has to offer. Situated just minutes from downtown Dallas and 20 minutes from Fort Worth, Duncanville provides you with the perfect touch of seclusion yet instant access to quality DFW business and attractions at the same time.

Whether it is business or pleasure, you can get where you need to go ... quickly and conveniently.

With I-20 on its northern border and Hwy 67 bordering its east, Duncanville is easily accessible to major interstate and highway systems in North Texas, including I-35 the NAFTA Corridor.

A city that 36,000 friendly people call home, Duncanville has been named “The City of Champions” and for good reason. No other city is more focused on the success of their local community, businesses, schools or citizens.
