It appears that six is our lucky number, because we’re #6 on Forbes’ list of “America’s Friendliest Towns”. What makes us so darn friendly, you ask? Well, according to Forbes:
- Our beautiful community centers around sports with a public athletic center (Frisco Athletic Center), along with our impressive venues that host four professional teams: FC Dallas, Frisco RoughRiders, Texas Legends, and Texas Tornado.
- 80% of our residents own their homes, and our community has strong neighborhood watch groups dedicated to reducing crime and improving quality of life
- Our Parks and Recreation Department hosts a 5K “Frosty Run” complete with breakfast with Santa every year, and our neighborhoods are known for planning social events throughout the year such as barbecues and Easter egg hunts
Forbes compiled its list of America’s Friendliest Towns based on the following criteria: percentage of owner-occupied homes, crime rate, charitable giving, and percentage of college grads in cities with populations of 5,500 – 150,000.
Thanks for making us #FriendlyFriscoTX!
