A fun, friendly community to live, work, and play in
Frisco is a vibrant, fun community situated north of Dallas, home to several sports teams’ headquarters. Recently, a number of Fortune 500, internationally recognized, and cutting-edge tech companies have also discovered Frisco and set up shop in town, making it one of Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live. This recent influx of high-paying jobs has led to the development of new neighborhoods, construction of beautiful homes, establishment of new schools within the prestigious Frisco Independent School District, and opening of a wide array of convenient businesses, shops, and restaurants.
When pioneers started settling in central Dallas along the Preston Trail, now Preston Road, settlers moved north with the city of Frisco officially being established in the early 1900s. The northern portion of Dallas-Fort Worth began to expand rapidly after the completion of DFW International Airport with growth reaching north to Frisco. Today, Frisco is home to great companies like PGA, T-Mobile, Keurig Dr. Pepper, and others, paving the way for prosperity well into the 21st century.
Frisco has single-handedly disproven the myth that life in the suburbs has to be boring or ho-hum. On most days, Frisco residents can attend exciting sporting events, festivals offering fun for the whole family, dine at either casual or elevated eateries, and enjoy retail therapy at one of DFW’s largest shopping centers. Ranked as one of the best places to live by several publications, Frisco children attend excellent schools, professionals enjoy short commutes, and drives into the central city are simple, thanks to the close-by Dallas North Tollway which heads directly downtown. One of the highest-earning cities in the state also boasts a relatively low cost of living, leading to an overall higher level of comfort and standard of living among residents.
With so many things to see, taste, and experience, Frisco residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to entertainment options. From The Star to Stonebriar Centre, and Downtown Frisco to Roughriders Ballpark, there is never a dull moment in this vibrant city.
Stonebriar Centre is one of the largest collections of shops in the DFW area. Between The Shops and Stonebriar Mall, there are nearly 200 stores and three dozen eateries and cafes to choose from. Barnes & Noble, Nordstrom, Williams Sonoma, and Sephora are a few of the major names to be found here. Stonebriar Centre also boasts a dine-in AMC Theater with a full menu and cocktails and hosts seasonal events for the whole family throughout the year.
Within Stonebriar, El Rincon Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar is a colorful spot to enjoy fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, and other Tex-Mex favorites. A spacious dining room and lively covered patio are also great places to have an ice-cold beer or one of their colorful frozen margaritas.
Casual, juicy chicken dinners are found at Babe’s Chicken Dinner House, a DFW favorite. Smoked chicken, fried chicken, chicken-fried steak, and other flavorful poultry creations are served here with a plethora of authentic sides. Babe’s also offers fried catfish, vegetable plates and homemade desserts, all the makings of a comforting, southern feast.
Frisco is a mecca for sports fans. The Star in Frisco, the headquarters and practice facility for the Dallas Cowboys is located just off the Dallas North Tollway and hosts concerts, festivals, big-ticket regional high school football matches, and other fun festivities. On game day, The Star hosts the official Dallas Cowboys watch party with food, music, and other entertainment for the whole family. The Frisco Roughriders, the minor league affiliate of the Texas Rangers, play at the Frisco Sports Complex from April through September. The Frisco Fair is another highly anticipated event taking place from May through June at the Frisco Fresh Market. Carnival rides, fair foods, live music, and games can all be found here, making excellent memories to last a lifetime. More quiet days can be spent at Frisco Commons Park, a vast, 63-acre park consisting of pavilions, ponds, playgrounds, picnic facilities, and more.
Though Frisco is home to a very large school district, students receive individual attention and perform at the highest standards. Frisco is home to the number-seven district in the state, per Niche.com, at:
