Frisco is a city in Collin and Denton counties in the U.S. state of Texas. It is part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex and about 25 miles from both Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Frisco was the fastest-growing city in the United States from 2000-2009 and also in 2017. In the late 1990s, the northern DFW suburban development met the northern border of Plano and spilled into Frisco, sparking rapid growth into the 2000s. Like many of the cities in Dallas’ northern suburbs, Frisco serves as a community for professionals who work in DFW. It offers many neighborhoods, including several master-planned and golf course communities.
Frisco also offers many restaurants to choose from along with retail shops, including Stonebriar Mall, IKEA, Nebraska Furniture Mart, and is also the home of the Dallas Cowboys headquarters, The Star. Frisco is also home to several sporting venues, and other major sports teams’ headquarters, including the NCAA Division I conference and the Dallas Stars.
Frisco Square, a mixed-use development, became the new downtown along with the city hall. Frisco Square has rental residential units, restaurants, commercial office space, and a few personal-service locations. The major development in the project was the new city hall, main library, and public commons.
