With affordable housing in great neighborhoods, authentic Texas cuisine and lots to do, it’s no wonder that Plano has been ranked as one of the Top 100 Best Places to Live. If you’re considering a move to Plano, then you’ll be joining nearly 280,000 others that have made the decision to call this great city home.
Plano is home to the corporate headquarters of J.C. Penny, Frito Lay, Toyota, Pizza Hut, and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. This helps keep the unemployment rate low and aids in the increase of the local job market. Over the next ten years, Plano is positioned to see a 42.7% job growth.
Don’t want to go home and cook after a long day at work, but also don’t want to eat at the same place all the time, Plano has over 700 restaurants to choose from. Whether you’re enjoying a night out in downtown Plano savoring the brisket at Lockhart's BBQ or you’re near the 121-corridor debating between Taco Diner and Jasper’s gourmet backyard cooking, there’s a place for everyone to enjoy.
Plano also offers three outdoor mixed-use developments – The Shops at Legacy, Legacy West, and the Granite Park Boardwalk. The Shops at Legacy is located in the heart of Legacy Town Center; a 168-acre master-planned development of urban style homes, local and national business, boutique-style retail, restaurants and hotels and parks. Located just across the Dallas North Tollway from the shops is Legacy West, a 250-acre lush destination with luxury retail, dining, residential, hotel and office space. Feel as though you’re walking the beach at the Granite Park Boardwalk. The Boardwalk was created to connect office buildings with the retail, hotel, and dining options.
Plano's nationally accredited Parks and Recreation Department enhances the city through inviting spaces, caring service, outstanding value, and memorable experiences. With 70 recreational trail miles available, you can walk, run and ride your way through Plano.
