Some of the ways Frisco is different from and similar to other DFW cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Frisco is located in central west Collin County and central east Denton County, approximately 28 miles north of downtown Dallas and 47 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Frisco's proximity to both the DFW International and Love Field airports, the Legacy and north Dallas business centers, and downtown Dallas is likely to make living in Frisco even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
