Frisco has officially outgrown the “up-and-coming” moniker.
It has up-and-arrived.
At or near the top of nearly every significant “best” list in the last five years, Frisco has distinguished itself as one of the “safest,” “fastest growing,” “most mobile-friendly” – and, let’s cut to the chase, “Best Places to Live” in the entire country.
The booming North Texas community has become a destination for corporate and tech giants, sports franchises, countless families and, very soon, an academic medical center: UT Southwestern Frisco will open a specialty clinic and 20-acre medical campus in December.
