"A great little mountain town to call home"

Some years back I had a friend who lived in Frisco and I every time I went to visit him I was jealous. Once you get past the main exit off the highway, where many people stop for gas or groceries, and get into the heart of Frisco you find a charming little community made up of an array of housing. Many of these homes blend in well with the natural surroundings and there is a laid back, easy going feeling. To me, Frisco is more of a place to call home than many of the neighboring, more touristy towns. For the size of the town, population 2,691, there are quite a few restaurants to choose from, some very good locally owned and also the typical couple of fast food places like A & W and Subway.

Frisco is located within 30 minutes of several world class ski resorts. It's also alongside the Frisco Bay part of the Dillon Reservoir, which has all kinds of activities for outdoor/water lovers. If I remember correctly, when you take the main road out of town heading south, there are some great hiking paths up this way.

For residents with children who live here, there are some very good schools for the kids, all ranking above state averages. Homes here, like in many mountain areas this direction, are pricey, with an average median home price of $512,169. The median household income is $77,024. Both of these numbers represent quite an increase over state averages.

Frisco definitely has its touristy area on Main Street. There are numerous shops such as art galleries, jewelry stores, a bookstore, and even a little mall. This touristy area doesn't spill over into the homes though and the residential area certainly has its own feel to it. Residents are friendly and seem to get to know their neighbors and genuinely care about them.

The major industry in Frisco is accommodation and food services, which seems obvious when you drive around and see all the restaurants, small lodging places, and bed & breakfasts. For it being such a touristy place, Frisco is very safe, with most of the crime being reported as theft.

Overall, if I were looking to move to the mountains I would seriously give Frisco some thought. There are numerous things to do here and there are some great restaurants. Just about anything you need is here, including a small Level 3 Trauma hospital which is connected to the Flight for Life system. The schools are good and although there is a lot of traffic in town, the neighborhoods seem quiet and comfortable.
