A Tale of Two Cities: Frisco Texas & Frisco Colorado

by Mike Yeo on January 3, 2012

Joanne Hanson – the local area expert of Frisco Colorado and I thought it would be very interesting to write about our two cities. Same name yet with its own distinctive profiles.

Frisco Texas Fast Facts:

Frisco Texas is a city located in the Collin & Denton Counties in the North Texas area. It is in the Central Standard time zone with elevation of 696 feet. Land area of 70 square miles. The city name was founded in honor of the railroad that founded the young town in 1902. The railroad line from San Francisco was shortened to “Frisco”. An estimated 92,345 residents call Frisco, Texas home. The median household income is $85,187 with median housing of $210,200. The closest Metropolitan is Dallas, TX. Major Mike Simpson heads the City of Frisco which is made up of 2 zip codes: 75034, 75035.

Frisco Colorado Fast Facts:

Frisco Colorado is a town in Summit County, in the Silverthorne metro area. 3 square miles. The community was named for San Francisco, CA (a similarity of Frisco, Texas). It is in the Mountain Standard time zone. Elevation is 9,075 feet.The estimated population, in 2003, was 2,490. According to Joanne Hanson, the population grows to almost 7000 people in the Summer. Median household income $62,267. Median house/condo value in Frisco = $349K  Closest Metropolitan = Denver, Co. Mayor is Bernie Zurbriggen. ZipCode: 80443

Pictureque scenery of Frisco Colorado – just like I imagine it to be. This little town is central to 5 premier Colorado Ski Areas including: Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Loveland. There is a vast difference in scenery for residents in Frisco, Texas. It is a typical growing suburbs of a metropolitan area – 25 miles north of Dallas. Families typically spend their weekends at soccer, football or baseball fields, cooling themselves off in swimming pools or enjoying the jet skis in the lakes while I imagine, the residents in Colorado begin skiing the slopes of the mountains during the winter, and hiking in the summer.

It takes 14 hours to drive 950 miles if you wanted the change of scenery between Frisco, Texas to Frisco, Colorado. Someday, I might just visit the same name yet different state of Frisco!!!
