Wonderful Place to Call Home
From shopping and wonderful hotels, to Southfork Ranch, made famous by the TV show "Dallas," Plano is one of the bigger cities in the North Texas area.With over 700 restaurants, antique stores, outlet malls, boutiques, and a fantastic Balloon Festival, there is always something to enjoy.
Plano began in 1873 when Houston and Central Railroad made it the trading center of Southwest Collin County. Today, more than 270,000 people live on its 72 square miles. Many businesses throughout the 1900s transitioned downtown Plano to a specialty retail district where you will see antique shops, unique clothing stores, and sweet little gift shops throughout. Historic Downtown as seen today started during the 1990s and the city hall and fire station were built at that time. Now, home to a DART station that delivers visitors and residents to Downtown Dallas, Plano is going to continue to grow and change with the times.
Also, be sure to check out the Chisholm Trail and Veteran's Memorial Park, where people and their dogs can enjoy parks, playground, dog parks, and bicycling.
Plano Independent School District also serves about 100 square miles of residents in Collin County. There are 72 schools and about 55,000 students. To find out more about Plano ISD, visit Plano Independent School District
