City of Plano
Constantly appearing on Best City lists, Plano is a darling of suburbs. Families fill acres of affordable, planned neighborhoods and shopping centers galore. Corporate headquarters are flocking to new developments like Legacy West, so while Plano is a commutable distance to just about anywhere, increasingly the jobs will be within miles. As is every other modern amenity you might want—parks and trails like Arbor Hill Nature Preserve, restaurants, entertainment one-stops like Shops at Legacy, churches of all denominations, major hospitals, and family-friendly events like the annual balloon festival.
