A rapidly growing suburb of Dallas, Frisco has everything—tons of locally owned restaurants and shops, a wide array of spas, sports and art alike. For local flavor try the largest hamburger on earth, El Jefe, at Kenny’s Burger Joint, a breakfast burrito at Rudy’s Country Store, a filet at Randy’s Steak House or a margarita at La Hacienda Ranch.
For a taste of local culture, visit the Heritage Museum featuring the town’s history and traditions and a living village; the Frisco Discovery Center with traveling exhibits, art galleries and live theatre; the Texas Sculpture Garden’s 40 pieces on display in Hall Office Park; and more than 100 other sculptures displayed around town.
Frisco is home to four professional athletic teams for year-round sport enthusiasm. See FC Dallas Major League Soccer, plus the Frisco RoughRiders Major League Baseball and both the Dallas Stars and Texas Tornado hockey teams at Dr. Pepper Arena, where concerts, events and shows provide endless entertainment. Join in on the action rock climbing at Canyons of Frisco, go-kart racing at Pole Position Raceway, or engaging in a variety of games at Main Event or GattiTown.
Last, stop by Frisco Fire Safety Town, a groundbreaking facility teaching children about safety through a miniature town of their own. It’s just one of the ways Frisco is purposefully planning for the future as it continues to grow. Find out why so many people are moving here in these reviews!
- Completely disagree that Frisco is one of the friendliest cities. My family moved here a couple of years ago thinking it was a friendly place. We were very disappointed. It definitely appears so at first, but it's all on the surface. Don't get sucked in - it is all about appearances. This goes for parents AND their kids.

- Frisco folks are the best! We moved here from Louisiana and were welcomed into the community and schools with open arms! I have never been more impressed with Frisco's hospitality as when my Louisiana family was evacuating for Hurricane Katrina. Neighbors, colleagues, church friends and students' families from the school where I teach all got together to help my family. They brought meals and supplies over every night we had guests. And our guests stayed until right before Thanksgiving that year! My SIL still talks about how much Frisco holds a special place in her heart! She brings her family back EVERY summer for a week's vacation to reminisce and spend time in this great little town! My MIL comes as often as she can and LOVES La Hacienda. My parents come to visit and are impressed with the growth and friendly feel in the town! My middle sister works and lives her too with her family! Frisco is a great place to visit, live or play in!!!

Frisco is not the best place to live if you are working class and frequently have to interact with the locals. In fact, you'll find that the friendly first impressions of most of the people who live here are horrendously misleading. A lot of people here are pretentious snobs who are horribly rude and mean spirited. Frisco is also notorious for its number of women who've gotten extensive plastic surgery. I've heard a lot of people say jokingly yet truthfully, "the women of frisco have the best beauty money can buy."
With that said, this town is a great place for a short term visit. Great food and several good shopping places. There are also a lot of nice movie theaters in the area. It's especially pretty around christmas, with the awesome light show in frisco square.

- Frisco has so much to do! There are four professional sports teams, amazing shopping, and beautiful hotels. Their outdoor art really is lovely to look at, also.
