Choosing the perfect place to live can be a daunting task. There is so much to consider. But when it comes to the DFW area, Collin County is the stand-out choice for a multitude of reasons.


Job Opportunities

With large corporations like Toyota and NTT Data International moving in, there is no shortage of jobs. The area is not only a hub for large corporations, but also small businesses and startups. By 2054 Collin County is expected to boast 1.16 million jobs, up from 325,000 in 2012. The population is also soaring and is on track to double by 2030 and be home to more than 3.5 million people by 2050.


All that growth means a healthy housing market. Whether the hustle and bustle of big-city life or quiet country living resonates, Collin County has it all, including being home to Frisco, recently named the number one place to live in America. Affordable housing is available for those wanting their own piece of land as well as those who appreciate all the amenities of a master-planned community. Folks who prefer the solitude of the country can spend the day fishing or taking in small-town festivals and farmer’s markets, while urbanites can savor the glitz and glamour of the county’s upscale shopping and dining opportunities, or enjoy one of the many arts and cultural activities that are all available within its borders.



Collin County is home to some of the top public and private schools in the country. Large school districts like Plano, Frisco, Prosper, and Allen are highly rated, and their students consistently score well on state and national exams, as do students in smaller districts like Lovejoy, which earned an overall score of 97 out of 100 under the state’s new academic accountability system. All but four of the county’s ISDs scored an A rating. Collin County residents also have the added benefit of cheaper tuition at Collin College, where many high school students take advantage of dual credit or concurrent enrollment opportunities to earn early college credit.



Never a shortage of things to do, the area appeals to families, couples, and singles alike. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the vast array of sporting opportunities available. Frisco alone is home to seven professional sports teams. Youth sports are extremely popular too. On any given Friday evening in the Fall, stadium lights dot the night sky. Parks and family-friendly activities are numerous, as are local breweries offering free and low-cost tours and samples of their craft beers. For those drawn to the allure of the nightlife, a vibrant bar scene isn’t hard to find. Collin County truly has something for everyone.
