Frisco: Nothing But the Best
You want the best for your family--and you'll find it here. Voted one of the Best Places to Relocate (Forbes), the Best Place to Raise an Athlete (Men's Journal), and the Best Place to Live (Money), the Frisco area really is the best of all possible worlds.
Frisco was recently named one of the 25 Best Places to Move by Forbes magazine. To come up with the list of cities,Forbes looked at how many people were from out of state or abroad, population growth, family income, number of residents with professional or executive jobs, the price, size and age of homes, growing school enrollment, the proximity of international companies, and reports from moving companies, builders, residents and government officials. Frisco made the cut thanks in part to its ideal location, with the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport just 28 miles away, Dallas 30 miles to the south, and global employers like Dr Pepper Snapple Group, JC Penney and Frito-Lay at its doorstep. In Frisco, 57% of residents have a college or higher degree, the same percentage were born out of state or abroad, and the median family income tops $100,000 a year.
Frisco was also pronounced the Best Place to Raise an Athlete by Men’s Journal magazine. For its list of Best Places to Live, Men’s Journal considered cities that prioritize conservation and support local businesses in addition to promising a low cost of living and high number of sunny days per year. Frisco won the Best Place to Raise an Athlete distinction for building world-class sports stadiums to attract pro teams and putting the associated tax windfall toward parks, bike paths, public art and a historic downtown. It also praised the town for prioritizing athletics and giving its families’ kids amazing places to play sports, from the Star to Toyota Stadium.
Finally, the Frisco region was named the #1 best place to live in America by Money magazine. Money praised Frisco's next-door neighbor McKinney for its business-friendly environment and easy commutes to jobs at Fortune 500 companies. Add local art galleries, small boutiques, farm-to-table restaurants, plus affordability and the accessibility of nature, and you get the top place in the nation to set up house.
