About Frisco, TX

The American state of Texas contains the city of Frisco in the Collin and Denton counties. Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport are both around 25 miles (40 km) apart from this area of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. According to the 2020 U.S. census, it has 200,509 residents. Many of the early Americans who established the Dallas area travelled by waggon trains via the Shawnee Trail. This path evolved into Preston Road and then the Preston Trail. The town of Lebanon was established alongside this trail as a result of all of this activity, and in 1860 it was given a U.S. post office.

The St. Louis-San Francisco Railway was building a line through the region in 1902, and the steam engines required regular watering breaks along the way. The watering stop was moved about 4 miles (6 km) to the west to a lower location because Lebanon’s existing village, which is on the Preston Ridge, is too high a height. Around this train station, a neighbourhood formed. Some Lebanon homeowners transported their homes on logs to the new neighbourhood. [8] Emerson was the initial name of the new town, but the U.S. Postal Service rejected it because it was too similar to Emberson, another hamlet in Lamar County. 

The name “Frisco City” was chosen by the locals in 1904 in recognition of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway. Later, it was abbreviated to Frisco.

In 2017,[6] as well as during 2000 to 2009, Frisco was the city in the United States with the highest population growth. The northern DFW suburban development tide reached Plano’s northern border in the late 1990s and overflowed into Frisco, igniting a period of explosive growth in the early 2000s. Like many other northern suburbs of Dallas, Frisco is a bedroom community for professionals who work in the DFW area. The National Arbor Day Foundation has designated Frisco as Tree City USA since 2003.
In North Texas, Frisco is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and partially in the Denton and Collin counties. The city has a total area of 62.4 sq mi (161.6 km2), of which 160.1 sq mi (61.8 sq km) is land and 0.58 sq mi (1.5 km2), or 0.92%, is water. This information comes from the United States Census Bureau.


The humid subtropical region includes Frisco. 39 inches (990 mm) of precipitation fall on the city each year. There are 230 bright days on average each year. The low in January is 33 °F (1 °C), while the high in July is 96 °F (36 °C). A higher score indicates a more comfortable environment. The comfort index, which is based on humidity during the hot months, is 25 out of 100.

The city had 200,509 residents as of the 2020 US Census, up from the 116,989 counted in 2010, 64,151 homes, and 48,519 families.


According to the 2019 American Community Survey, 51.9% of the population identified as non-Hispanic or Latino white, 8.4% as Black or African American, 0.2% as American Indian or Alaska Native, 26.0% as Asian alone, 0.1% as Native Hawaiian or another Pacific Islander, 2.7% as having two or more racial backgrounds, and 10.7% as Hispanic or Latino American of any race.


[15] By 2020, 11.48% of the population was Hispanic or Latino of any race, 8.82% were Black or African Americans, 0.3% were Native Americans, 26.27% were Asian, 0.05% were Pacific Islanders, 0.52% were of some other race, and 4.55% were multiracial. [12]


The median income for a household in the city was estimated to be $100,868 in 2010 by the American Community Survey[16], while the median income for a family was estimated to be $109,086. The city’s per capita income was $38,048. 5.8% of people and about 2.2% of families lived in poverty, including 2.4% of people over 65 and 7.5% of people under the age of 18. A new home cost a median of $252,000. Its median income increased to $116,884 by 2019.

Stonebriar Centre, a 165-store regional mall, IKEA, a furniture retailer with a 28,800 m2 (310,000 sq ft) space, and The Star, the home of the Dallas Cowboys, are just a few of the numerous retail establishments in Frisco. One of the city’s main north-south thoroughfares, Preston Road, is lined with shops and restaurants.


In contrast to many of its neighbouring communities, Frisco chose to finance the Frisco Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) with a small portion of its local sales tax rather than the regional transportation agency Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). The efficiency of the FEDC, whose main goal is to redistribute such tax funds to commercial endeavours, is up for debate in the public.


Along with the municipal hall, Frisco Square, a mixed-use complex, was transformed into the new downtown. Around 250 rental homes, seven restaurants, 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2) of commercial office space, and a few personal service locations may be found at Frisco Square. The project’s new city hall, primary library, and public commons are its key developments. In 2010, a Cinemark cinema first opened. North of the theatre, Medical City Plano-Frisco, a hospital, was constructed in 2012.

While a different museum complex is being built, Frisco is home to the Museum of the American Railroad, which is housed inside the Frisco Heritage Museum. The National Videogame Museum, an art museum, and a black-box theatre are all located at the nearby Discovery Center.


The annual Christmas in the Square holiday light show is one of the many events held at Frisco Square throughout the year. Other events include Music in the Square and Arts in the Square (the largest choreographed lights and music show in North Texas).


[20] In the municipal council chamber, the city hall also presents a series of concerts called Music in the Chamber.
An indoor stadium with 12,000 seats is called the Ford Center at the Star. The Ford Center, where Frisco ISD high school teams alternately practise and play, is part of the 91-acre Dallas Cowboys complex called “The Star,” which houses the team’s offices and training facilities. One block west of the Dallas North Tollway on Gaylord Parkway is where it is located. [23] The Dallas Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse and the Texas Revolution of Champions Indoor Football[24][25] are two professional clubs that have established residences in the Ford Center.


On April 3, 2003, the first baseball game was played at Riders Field, a venue with 10,316 seats. It was awarded the greatest brand-new stadium that year by [26] and won the 2003 Texas Construction award for Best Architectural Design. [27]


Toyota Stadium is a 20,500-seat stadium that first opened in 2005 under the name “Pizza Hut Park.” FC Dallas uses it mostly as a soccer field, but it also serves as a venue for high school and collegiate football games, as well as the NCAA Division I-AA (FCS) college football championship starting in 2010 and the NCAA Division I (FBS) Frisco Bowl beginning in 2017.


The Frisco Fighters of the Indoor Football League and the Texas Legends of the NBA G League call the Comerica Center (previously Dr Pepper Arena) home. It also serves as the Dallas Stars of the NHL’s practise facility.
