Plano, Texas is ranked as the number one city to raise a family in America and for good reason; parks, parks and more parks! Ok, that and high school ratings, low crime rates, age demographics, access to affordable housing and childcare. And did we mention parks? Kids and kids at heart take to the thrilling nearby amusement parks and museums. There are also lots of parks for picnics, swimming and tennis (81 courts exactly!) laced with 40-plus miles of hike and bike trails. There are six recreation centers, three public golf courses, five public swimming pools, 93 soccer/football fields and 61 baseball/softball fields.
Plano has also been designated the best place to live in the Western United States by CNN Money magazine 3 years and as the 11th best place to live in all the United States. Consistently rated as the safest city in America and Best Suburb for Education in the Nation due to having one of the lowest student-teach ratios and a high school graduation rate of 94 percent, it’s no wonder families are flocking to Plano, Texas.
Add to that, Plano is a big deal when it comes to shopping. Serious shoppers love the selection – antiques, boutiques, bargain outlet malls and some pretty major indoor malls too. Those who love sports appreciate the fact there’s always a pro team playing nearby and foodies delight to discover hundreds of restaurants on Plano’s menu.
