Frisco Texas is probably one of the largest cities in Collin County and parts of Denton County with a population close to 180,000 residents. It was the fastest growing city in the entire nation from the year 2000 to 2009. Today, growth has only slowed slightly but there are new master-planned communities, subdivisions, neighborhoods, and developments popping up all around Frisco.
Just 25 minutes north of Dallas, Frisco offers a wealth of activities, shopping, sports, dining, and arts and culture.
Frisco has received the designation “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation. Frisco has also been named #1 on the list of best places for young families in the state. With the median household income of about $110,000, this 62 mi.² city is popular for students, families, and retirees.
Frisco is home to the SuperDrôme, and outdoor velodrome as well as an Olympic size state-of-the-art natatorium. We have over 150 outdoor sculptures, 56 miles of hiking and biking trails, and over 40 parks. Even though our population is not that high, we have over 4 million people visiting Frisco each year. We have dozens of shopping centers including the capstone briar Center, IKEA, and a 165 store regional mall. Not only do we have all of the chain restaurants, but unique eateries as well from local chefs and entrepreneurs. Frisco Square is a mixed-use development and one of the newest additions to downtown. It features 250 rental residential units, seven restaurants, and about 40,000 ft.² of commercial office space.
The Frisco Independent School District employees over 6100 residents and is one of the top-rated schools in the country. Some parts of Frisco extend into the Louisville ISD, the Little Elm ISD, and the Prosper ISD. The Frisco ISD has nine high schools, 16 middle schools, and 40 elementary schools and all high schools compete in 5A because of the addition of 6A schools to Texas. There are early childhood and preschool options, private schools, and several higher education school such as Collin College, Amberton University, the Carrollton campus of University of Dallas, UT Arlington with an MBA campus and a Frisco campus of the University of North Texas.
