With a low cost of living and excellent housing choices, Clyde is a place where your dollar goes farther—and where you don’t have to settle in your search for the amenities that make life richer. The City of Clyde is a business-friendly city that offers economic development incentives for businesses to relocate to Clyde. With direct access to I-20 that has daily traffic counts exceeding 30K vehicles, proximity to Abilene Regional Airport (10 miles) and Dallas Fort Worth International ( 146 miles), commercial rail access (10 miles), available city and private land with I-20 frontage, and the Top Rated Clyde Independent School District; relocating to the City of Clyde makes excellent business sense.
Tee off on the scenic fairways of the appropriately named Shady Oaks Golf Course, where graceful oaks wind through a course designed for the optimum challenge. The fishing and boating are superb on the 450-acre Clyde Lake, where crappie and large-mouth bass are abundant and always biting. Clyde’s outstanding recreation is ready anytime you are: our temperate weather makes recreation a year-round pleasure. At the same time, our packed annual schedule of festivals means more fun under the sun—or the stars, in the case of our Holiday Parade of Lights. Savor the sweet pies and sensational music at our signature Pecan Festival; browse and bag the buys at our annual spring city-wide garage sale, which draws crowds from all over the region; celebrate summer at our Fourth of July Festival by the Lake. Why live your life when you can love your life, with more ways to play, every day, every season.
