The Best Southwest is a term commonly applied to four Dallas suburbs – Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, and Lancaster – in southwestern Dallas County, Texas (USA). As of the 2010 census, the four suburbs had a combined population of 168,960.
The term "Best Southwest" was first used when the Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, and Lancaster chambers of commerce formed a partnership to improve cooperation between the cities. They formed the Best Southwest Chamber Partnership in 1986, and it was incorporated in 1990.
The four municipalities, which are similar in population and form one of the most demographically diverse regions in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, frequently work together on local events and projects.
