The Best Places to Live in America, Number One is Frisco TX
You may have noticed that in recent years, cities in North Texas have ranked on Money magazine’s annual list of “The Best Places to Live in America.”
It was recently announced that for 2018, Frisco, TX ranked Number one on “The Best Places to Live in America!” This is no surprise based on the residential and commercial growth Frisco has been experiencing over the last several years.
Some of the Growth has been brought on by The Star in Frisco, Home of The Dallas Cowboys’ Headquarters and State of The Art Training Facility! The Stars is also a great place to shop, dine, and enjoy the Dallas Cowboys-themed campus. The Star offers more than twenty restaurants, shops and specialty services, to include the Dallas Cowboys’ Fan Shop.
Money magazine also stated that Frisco’s public school system contributed to Frisco’s Number One placing on the list.
These rankings were confined to cities with a population of 50,000 or more residents. Money magazine also excluded cities that had more than double the national crime risk, less than 85 percent of its state’s median household income, or a lack of ethnic diversity.
According to Money magazine, the greatest weight was put on economic health, public school performance and local amenities. Housing, cost of living and diversity were also considered.
According to Frisco’s Economic Development Corporation here are some keys notes in regards to Frisco’s Quality of Life:
Over 1,369-acres of developed park land in 48 park sites including the largest skate park in North Texas
56 miles of Hike & Bike trails
