Renters’ Guide to Frisco
Welcome to Frisco! This North Central Texas city has experienced explosive growth for more than a decade, with its population expanding by nearly 250% from 2000 to 2014 alone. In 2016, WalletHub named Frisco the Fastest-Growing City in the US.
But growth isn’t all Frisco has going for it. It’s also been classified as a “Tree City USA” for over a decade, owing to its nearly 1,400 acres of parks. And in 2014, NerdWallet ranked Frisco the best city in Texas to raise a young family, in part because of its tremendous public schools.
Frisco is just as hot as the rest of Texas, with the average July high coming in at around 96⁰F, while January lows dip to 33⁰F. The city can also get quite humid during spring and summer. And while Frisco experiences 230 sunny days per year, it sits in one of the country’s highest-risk areas for tornadoes.

Living in Frisco, TX
Frisco has a lot of things going for it. It’s a rapidly growing city with a strong economy and real estate market. There’s a good public school system and plenty of nature. And Frisco is also just a short trip from Dallas, one of the largest cities in the country.
On the other hand, the combination of Texas heat and tornado risk mean the weather is less than ideal. And such explosive growth does create a few problems, like increased traffic.
Things to Do in Frisco
If you’re searching for things to do in Frisco, you’re more than covered. Why not start off with something pretty unique, iFLY Dallas Indoor Skydiving? The vertical wind tunnel here gives you the sensation of freefalling for thousands of feet, yet it manages to be safe and family-friendly.
But if you’d prefer to stay firmly on the ground, the local Frisco Commons Park is a great place for a stroll. Or see who in the family can make their way around the track faster on the indoor go-karts at the Pole Position Raceway.
Art lovers can find something to appreciate at the Texas Sculpture Garden, four acres of park that house 40 amazing works from local artists. Or you can head to the Frisco Discover Center, which features the Frisco Art Gallery, the National Videogame Museum, and plenty of other fun exhibits for all ages.
Sports fans will find lots to keep them busy as well. There’s a major-league soccer team in town, FC Dallas, which plays at Toyota Stadium. The NBDL’s Texas Legends compete at the nearby Dr Pepper Arena, and minor league baseball’s Frisco RoughRiders regularly play at Dr Pepper Ballpark. And neighboring Dallas is home to the Cowboys, Mavericks, and Stars.
In fact, the headquarters of both the Cowboys and the Stars are located in Frisco, and the Stars even practice here—and their practices are free and open to the public!
Shoppers will want to check out both the Stonebriar Centre shopping mall and Frisco Square. And when you’re ready to grab a bite to eat, there’s Babe’s Chicken Dinner House for fried chicken and all your favorite sides, Platia Greek Kouzina for some Greek fare, or Kenny’s Burger Joint for a big, juicy slab of beef.
Head back to Frisco Square in April for the annual Arts in the Square event, a two-day festival that showcases over 120 artists from the area. And every Saturday in June features a new concert, as part of the Music in the Square annual celebration.
Economy and Employment in Frisco
With an unemployment rate below the state average and income growth more than 10% higher than the US average, Frisco boasts a very healthy economy and more than 9,000 businesses, which has fueled its huge expansion over the past decade and a half.

Tips for Renting in Frisco
Itching to make Frisco your new home? Before you start packing, let’s take a moment to get acquainted with some of the local tenant laws.
In Texas, there’s no limit on how much a landlord can ask as a security deposit, but they are required to return it within 30 days of your move-out. If they don’t, you may be able to sue them in small claims court.
You’re also allowed to make needed repairs yourself and deduct the cost from your rent if the landlord fails to take care of the issue.
As terms may differ from one agreement to another, always make sure to read your lease in full so you understand exactly what’s required of you and your landlord.
