When someone speaks of a city having everything you could possibly want in one locale, they may very well be talking about Plano, Texas. Between the many sights and amenities, corporations, and highly acclaimed schools, there’s no wonder Money magazine recently named Plano the Best Place to Live in the Western United States. It was also designated the Safest City to Live in America by Forbes in 2011.
With the completion of the Houston & Central Texas Railway, Plano was originally incorporated in 1873 as a small farming community. A century later, it would eventually be a city with more than 70,000 people residing in its borders.
Today, the city holds well over 260,000 people and is home to many corporate giants. Dr. Pepper, Frito-Lay, JCPenny, Tektronix, and Dell Services are only a handful of world-renowned companies to have corporate headquarters in Plano. With that, comes an almost unlimited supply of career opportunities for residents! In 2014, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. announced its plans to follow suit and move its headquarters to Plano as well.
From an entertainment standpoint, Plano is loaded with things to do and see on any given day. There are so many restaurants and eateries available in the city. Whether it’s small, independently owned establishments you’re into or larger franchise menus you’re looking for, you don’t have to look too long and you’ll never run out of options. For shopping and enjoying the night life, head to historic Downtown Plano where you will find music and theater, shops and boutiques, restaurants and bars, and a number of other amenities. If it’s nature you want, Plano is home to the 200-acre Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.
The schools in the area are among some of the best in the country. Most of Plano is served by Plano Independent School District, which has some of the highest test scores in America on SATs and college entrance exams.
