Frisco is a great city if you are looking for a very safe, convenient location that is good for families. The public education system is great compared to other nearby independent school districts, and the roads are very nice! There are some great neighborhoods with very nice real estate available, and you will be able to find something nice within your preferred price range. Frisco is also a very diverse city, with many different cultural and ethnic influences! There are some great local restaurants around the town and most are very affordable! I would definitely recommend the suburbs of Frisco to anyone wanting to settle and live quiet, happy life with children!

Frisco is, without a doubt, an amazing place to raise a family. The schools here are amazing, with a large pool of resources for students. There's also a highly competitive job and housing market due to the explosive population growth taking place here. However, Frisco, great as it is for families, isn't without its downsides. The cost of living is rapidly increasing, there aren't a lot of amazing restaurants and bars, so it's not a great place for single people, and it can be a bit frustrating to commute to Dallas, Arlington, or Fort Worth at times. Frisco has quite a bit of racial diversity, with large Asian-American and Hispanic minorities, but almost everyone is relatively wealthy, and it's kind of like living in a bubble for most people. Overall, though, Frisco is pretty great for those who live here!
Frisco has an incredible education system with numerous opportunities. However, as one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, the increased population has lead to high traffic and construction. Additionally, the community can be misleading. The friendly, welcoming type is more of a subculture. A great number of people are materialistic, cutthroat, and image-focused. There is an uptight, tense energy that surrounds them so much so that "Frisco Parents" is a common joke amongst youth. I am grateful for all of the experiences and triumphs I had here, but I caution people from getting trapped in the high-maintenance, self-absorbed mentality that seems to intoxicate the few that give Frisco a bad name.
