Best Part About Frisco?


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?


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?


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.

The Area

Frisco is on the north side of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, more commonly known as DFW Metroplex. It is due north of Dallas but only 30 minutes or so north. All of DFW is easily accessible by car and some by train although Frisco isn’t on the DART train line so driving will be a part of your life.

Many people think of DFW as a great big giant city (with 7.2 million people) with borders among the cities, suburbs and towns as largely irrelevant given the lack of natural borders from things like rivers or lakes. While there can be plenty of traffic in DFW for the most part the freeway system/turnpike gets everyone around in very short drives (or train rides) relative to most of the other large metroplexes. DFW is extremely new compared to the other big developed metroplexes and that means it is just more convenient. You’re 15-35 minutes into downtown Dallas or Fort Worth from a great majority of the suburbs which means if you choose to live that rolling lawn lifestyle it’s not far to hit the big cities. Most of the popular suburbs are directly north Dallas: Plano, McKinney, Frisco among others but there are also plenty in between the two cities: Irving, Arlington and Grand Prairie that draw a lot of attention as well.

If you’re looking for the most “developed” of the north suburbs in terms of a commercial district then Plano is a good option. Frisco is the fastest growing the the most development happening but plots of good options.

None of this means you have to live close to one of the big cities. The Metroplex is nearly 9,300 square miles, which means it is larger than the land areas of six U.S. states. If you want rural you can find it here.


Young Professionals

Frisco has a robust downtown scene, both in terms of a social scene and housing. There is actually both a condo/apartment option for young professionals and a historic district which may be too pricey for some but again, the surrounding area is where you want to be.

Young Families

Frisco is priced higher than many of the north Dallas suburbs but still comes in lower than many of the national metroplexes so young families are in luck here. More modest but still substantial homes with yards and access to amazing schools in the Frisco school district are plentiful. Hunter’s Creek is a good example of these neighborhoods as is The Trails. Average home prices here are in the $300k - $500k range, which for Frisco is reasonable. These are the kinds of communities with movie nights at the local community pool and tons of family events that bring everyone together.

Established Families

Most of the “fancy” neighborhoods in Frisco, those with the largest homes, biggest yards, and greatest variety of amenities are newer neighborhoods built to accommodate the growing wealth in the city. Unlike other cities in which the wealthy or newer neighborhoods are isolated in a particular area, Frisco has these types of neighborhoods spread from east to west. If you are looking to go upscale, starting with these neighborhoods is your best bet.
One exception to the new neighborhoods is the Historic Downtown District. For those with a desire to live in a neighborhood with a strong walkscore and proximity to all downtown has to offer this is the spot. Beautiful older homes and trees with some character offer an alternative to the more standard “suburban” neighborhoods.
