Best Part About Frisco?

SPORTS!!!

No matter your passion: football, soccer, baseball or golf, Frisco is the place. Dr. Pepper Ballpark has the Frisco RoughRiders minor league baseball team, the Dallas Cowboys practice and headquarters, The Star, is here. Toyota Stadium, home of the FC Dallas soccer team is here. And to top it off the PGA is moving its headquarters to Frisco to be paired with two championship golf courses, a conference center and resort-style hotel.

While there is so much more going on in Frisco than sports, like being one of the fastest growing cities in the country, and it has great schools and the rest, it is this gravitational pull of exciting sports to the city that gives it a special energy.

Note from a local about the school system also being a huge benefit:
The school system is incredible offering almost unlimited opportunities for kids. Yes, it is competitive in both scholastics and sports, but the resources that are provided to kids is worth it. It is a small school concept to keep the teacher-to-student ratio manageable. There is a nice community college here with University of North Texas implementing plans to build a campus in Frisco starting in 2022.

Worst Part About Frisco?

Growth

As just mentioned Frisco is growing fast. Between 2010 and 2019 it was the fastest growing city in the U.S. When you combine this growth with a lack of public transportation, Frisco isn’t part of the DART train line, you get traffic, congestion and a feeling things are always under construction.

Here's a local talking about growth issues:
I moved to Frisco when the population was still barely in the 5 digits. The growth, which is why I moved here and I am volunteering that I am a hypocrite, has ruined it for me. Driving simply from Preston to Tollway at this point has become a chore. The traffic is out of control, and if there was some mechanism to say "we're full", at this point i would take it.

Lifestyle of Frisco

This stunning growth signals a nearly perfect suburban city opportunity. Beautiful new homes are constantly being built to house new families who crave access to the great schools, parks, and recreational opportunities. There is also a fun historic downtown area that is growing with more to do called The Rail District. This whole area is filled with boutique shopping, bars, restaurants and tons of community activities for families and young professionals.
Basically, Frisco is kind of heaven for families looking for active suburban lifestyles. Big yards for homeplay, parks and amazing facilities for play away from home. Downtown art and food trucks, nice and casual restaurants for the kids or date nights. While you’re really close to Dallas and Fort Worth for when you need a bigger city fix you may not need it as much as you’d think.

Workstyle of Frisco

Frisco has big corporate opportunities in tech and health in particular. Conifer Health and Argon Medical are just two of the big health industry corporations here and Integer Holdings, Goodman Networks, Worldlink and Imagine Communications are just a few of the tech and communication businesses here. Employment in Frisco is booming and so if you want to live and work in Frisco you can certainly do so. You’re also smack dab in heart of DFW, one of the fastest growing metroplexes in the U.S. so if you aren’t working in Frisco, you can find work in Dallas/Fort Worth, or one of the other booming suburban cities.

Why You Should Move Here Now?

Opportunity

The economic opportunity in Frisco in particular, and DFW in general, is really hard to beat. The growth in jobs in Frisco is unparalleled relative to the rest of the country. Even if that weren’t the case people now move here to wfh and take advantage of the beautiful neighborhoods, great schools and city amenities. The housing prices relative to the economic opportunity are impossible to beat compared to California, or New York or Chicago and so the people keep coming.
