Frisco is pretty cool. The school district is amazing, there are plenty of restaurant options to choose from, and the city keeps growing and growing. We've got just about everything a city desires; movies, dining choices, hotels, gyms, malls, pools, parks, Frisco has it all!

I moved to Frisco 7 years ago from St. Louis MO. Even though it's peaceful it's also racist and filled with materialistic people who look down on others. Some people in the community don't think that blacks are deserving of the same things or can't afford things. A great education system which is why I moved here, kinda regret it sometimes. Especially after what my daughter went through. It appears that the younger children express their racism openly, while the adults fake It. Throughout elementary and middle school, my daughter was called racist names and treated poorly by some staff and students. Once she grew tired and old enough to take-up for herself, she was titled the "aggressor". My son not so much, but that's because he played sports. Over the years, it has become super congested and overpriced. I will say that everything is conveniently located and you can walk almost anywhere. A lot of parks and eateries. Overall Frisco is a decent, overpriced place with some ugly people.
It's one of the fastest growing suburbs in the United States, and it's proximity to downtown Dallas makes it even better! Frisco has beautiful homes, diverse cultures, and many great things to do! I love living in Frisco. The neighborhoods are really clean and safe and everything is really close.
