Frisco is a booming suburb that barely existed 10 years ago, and now has an estimated population of 100,000. The population is young with the median age being 30.. There are 28 elementary schools, 8 middle schools and 5 high schools. It's 81% white, 11% Hispanic and 4% Black.
A median price house is $257,000. The median family income is $103,600. The cost of living index puts Frisco at 93 compared to the US average of 100. You'll find plenty of shopping in Frisco.
Frisco is big on sports with the AA Baseball team, the Rough Riders. The Texas Tornado hockey team and a soccer team as well. There's really nothing I can think of that's bad about Frisco. The worst part may be the traffic, which is heavy around the mall, restaurant area.
North Texas weather can change rapidly. I have no idea what Fontana is like but I think it must be very different than here. Summers are hot and they last from late May through Oct. Normally the coldest part of the winter comes in Jan and Feb, but we've had snow twice already this winter. When I say snow, we get an inch or two at most, and it's gone the next day. We have had extremely cold weather since the first of the year, this morning was 17, but a large part of the country is experiencing that right now and it is very unusual for here. Spring brings tornado watches, but few warnings. But we don't have earthquakes!

I live in Frisco and personally love it. Here's the good and the bad….

Good: Very nicely planned communities. The neighborhoods are well kept up, and there is a lot of pride of ownership here. Excellent schools (most of the public schools in frisco are in the top 5 or 10% of all schools in Texas). Great shopping nearby (Stonebriar Mall and the surrounding area along Preston Road have every store imaginable). Lots of outdoor activities (brand new soccer and baseball stadiums, hiking trails, MANY parks). With the completion of the Dallas North Tollway into Frisco, transportation to downtown Dallas is quick and easy. Access to DFW airport getting easier as Highway 121 is getting completed (I live in northwest Frisco and it takes me about 25-27 minutes to get to DFW airport—can you tell I drive that a lot?! 🙂 ) Lots of new jobs opening here as many corporations and hi-tech firms move into the area. Very low crime rate.

Bad: Houses can be a little more expensive here than some of the surrounding communities, but part of that is because of the upkeep/curb appeal of how Frisco has grown and also the good and convenient schools here. That's not to say there aren't excellent communities nearby, but Frisco does have a little bit of a price premium over some neighboring communities. Also, we are still on the outer edges of the Dallas metro area—but that's changing quickly.

We moved here from California, and absolutely love it. It's a great place to raise a family, and there really is a good sense of community here. I've been amazed at how people here really get to know each other. In the area I lived in in California, people never knew their neighbors. Here you can easily get to know and trust people…


Update: While I don't agree with everything Betron says (many of my neighbors have been trading in their Tahoes and Suburbans for Honda's and Priuses 🙂 ), I think there is a good point made…. Frisco IS a suburb. It is farther away from some of the cultural activities that you find closer to downtown Dallas, and while lots of jobs ARE moving to the area and there is a large shopping district, it really still is predominantly residential. The other good point that Betron raises is that Frisco is, for the most part, a new community. The population here (and in many of the northern suburbs of Dallas) has grown explosively over the last 5-10 years, and I think it's fair to say that a majority of the houses in Frisco are less than 10 years old…. Whether that is a good or bad thing really depends on what you're looking for.

What are the best daycares in Little Elm/Frisco Texas area?

I am planning on having a child within the next year. I would like to know the names of good daycare places for my child. I am also concerned about the price. Due to this being my first child, I don't know how much child care usually costs.
