According to JESSE J. HOLLAND of the Associated Press,  It is true that "we do grow everything bigger in Texas," even the cities.

New data from the Census Bureau shows that Frisco, Texas was the second fastest growing city in the nation beween 2012 and 2013.  San Marcos, Texas was number one and Cedar Park, Texas was number 4.   Perhaps Governor Perry's "Wide Open For Business" campaign, is really making an impact...  Or perhaps, folks are simply intrigued by all this great town has to offer.  

If you haven't visited yourself, we would love to host you and take you on a discovery tour to find out just what makes this little city so attractive.

Hey Frisco!  Your friendly nature has been noticed!  Rand McNally and USA Today  have named you as a finalist in the Best of the Road Rally contest.

Frisco is a finalist to be named Friendliest Small Town.  (”Small towns” are apparently any place with a population of less than 150,000, which seems like an overly broad definition.)

A two-person team will be visiting the finalist cities between June and mid-July, when they will announce the winners.  You can bet that our city leaders will be rolling out the red carpet.  I hope the residents will all offer a firm handshake and a warm smile to welcome the judges as well.
