Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Apartment Community Roundup: Spotlight on Plano, TX

May 18, 2022

Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex?!

If you’re from Dallas or Fort Worth, Texas or planning a move to Texas, it’s probably no surprise that Dallas and Fort Worth are among the fastest growing cities in the U.S. With a large and growing job market that includes many Fortune 500 company headquarters, a variety of cultural, entertainment, and recreational venues, a plethora of shopping opportunities, all the sports leagues fans dream about, plenty of colleges and universities — oh, and celebrity sightings, billionaires, the biggest state fair, and so much more – it’s no wonder that the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth (along with their growing suburbs) have merged into what seems like one big city: The Dallas-Fort Worth “metroplex.”

Spotlight on Plano, TX

A roundup of Fairfield apartment communities in this metroplex spans Dallas, Irving, Lewisville, Weatherford, and Plano. (Search now for your new home!) But given the expanse of this metroplex, today we put the spotlight on Plano, a city named by its residents and many visitors the “City of Excellence,” “least-stressed city in Texas,” and “one of the happiest places in the country.” In recent years, Plano has even been ranked among the “top 100 places to live in America” and one of the “best cities for feeling young.”

Located just north of Dallas in Collin and Denton Counties, Plano is a big city with a small-town feel. It is the ninth largest city in Texas and one of the top 100 largest cities in the U.S. The name “Plano” may translate to flat, but this town’s character is anything but! This big city with a small-town offers a variety of lifestyle choices to suit everyone’s needs.
