Suburban Areas of the Dallas Metroplex

Nearby suburbs offer commuters new and recently constructed homes, as well as several excellent public schools. Plano schools are ranked among the best in the country, and the city hosts a surprising number of large corporate headquarters (Frito Lay, J.C. Penny and Pizza Hut to name a few). Planned communities like Allen, Frisco and McKinney to the north have seen rapid growth in recent years, and also feature superb schools. Upscale Southlake, as well as Las Colinas & Valley Ranch, offer convenient access to downtown Dallas and the DFW Airport. Colleyville, Flower Mound and Coppell are other attractive options.
