About Frisco

Moving to Frisco TX?

Here is a helpful Frisco Guide if you are moving to Frisco TX. Straddling between two counties in Texas (Collin and Denton), Frisco is a city that is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) “metroplex.” Because of its proximity to Dallas and Fort Worth, Frisco has exploded as one of the most prominent bedroom communities in the Metroplex. Within the first decade of the 21st century, it was the fastest-growing city in the United States. According to the 2010 Census, Frisco had 116,989 people; as of 2017, that population is estimated at 168,140.

Frisco History

Frisco’s beginnings can be traced back to the early 1800s, when settlers first came to the Dallas area via the Shawnee Trail, which would become the foundation for Preston Road—one of the oldest north-south road in Texas. Consequently, the community of Lebanon was founded along this route. A U.S. post office was granted to this settlement in 1860. In 1902, when the Pacific Railroad Company was permitted to build a line stretching from St. Louis to the western boundary of Missouri, a watering stop for cooling down the steam locomotives was appointed about four miles west of Lebanon, since the town itself was too high an elevation to establish it there. That train stop soon blossomed into a community, which was officially named Frisco City in 1904, and then eventually shortened to Frisco.

Frisco Weather

The average daily temperature in Frisco ranges from 33 degrees in January to 96 degrees in July. The area receives 39 inches of rain per year, with 230 sunny days per year on average. Frisco’s comfort index, which is based on humidity during the hotter period of the year, is measured at 25, which is below the U.S. average of 44; the ideal is 100.

Frisco Transportation

Frisco is primarily a commuter city, with virtually all its residents relying on their cars to get from one place to another. Also, average work commuting time can be on the long side; it is measured at around 30 minutes, which is a bit higher than the national average.

Cost of Living in Frisco

The cost of living in Frisco is more expensive than the national average. According to Bestplaces.net, it is about 32 percent more expensive to live in Frisco. Housing in the city is the biggest factor for the cost of living, followed by the monthly utility bills associated with the dwelling place. These are some things to consider if you are hiring a Frisco moving company.

Frisco Schools

Although most of Frisco’s primary and secondary schools are within the Frisco Independent School District (Frisco ISD), some kids go to schools that fall in the school districts of nearby areas such as Lewisville, Little Elm, and Prosper. As of 2017, Frisco ISD comprises nine high schools, 16 middle schools, and 40 elementary schools. The city includes the Frisco ISD Career & Technical Education Center, where high-school students can check out various career paths to help nurture their future professional endeavors. Collin College, Amberton University, the University of Dallas, the University of Texas at Arlington, and the University of North Texas have campuses or enable students to take classes at Frisco.

Frisco Hospitals

As part of the DFW metro area, Frisco is within 30 miles of 71 hospitals. However, there are two within the city: Baylor Scott & White Medical Center and Medical City Frisco. Founded in 2012, Medical City (54 beds) is currently the newest hospital in Frisco and is rated a “green” facility for its special attention to environmental and energy efficiency. Baylor (68 beds) has been voted as Frisco’s best hospital several times by publications like Living Magazine, Frisco Enterprise, and Celina Record.

Frisco Real Estate

Almost 70 percent of Frisco houses were built after 2000, thus providing a lot of relatively new house stock. However, bear in mind that Frisco real estate is one of the most expensive in Texas. The median house price in the city is around $364,000. As Frisco continues to expand and if you are considering making Frisco your new home, be sure to choose an experieced Frisco mover to help you get settled in.

Frisco Hotels

Over 80 hotels and inns are within a 30-mile radius of Frisco. Some of the most prominent ones include the Sheraton Stonebriar Hotel, Hampton Inn & Suites Legacy Park, Hyatt House Dallas, and the Hilton Garden Inn.

Frisco Restaurants

As a Texas city, expect to see a lot of Tex-Mex establishments to quench your hunger. Some of the most prominent places to eat in Frisco include Hutchins Bbq, Estilo Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse, Kenny’s Burger Joint, Babe’s Chicken Dinner House, and Platia Greek Kouzina. A lot of restaurants coincidentally line Preston Road.

Things to Do In Frisco

The Dallas Cowboys—“America’s Team” itself—recently moved its corporate headquarters to Frisco. And that includes Ford Stadium, where the team occasionally plays. Frisco is also home to the Superdrome, an outdoor arena where you can see—or participate in—track cycling. And there’s the Frisco Athletic Center, an 18,000-square-foot area of aquatic activity and visual wonders.
