Dallas Child Magazine named Plano “Best Family-friendly City or Suburb” as part of its 2011 Best for Families list. The list was featured in the magazine’s 25th anniversary issue last December.
According to the magazine’s authors, “The city of Plano offers a great mix of education, events and entertainment. Even with increasing growth, the education system continues to excel. For the ninth year in a row the Plano Independent School District has been selected for the “What Parents Want Award” by SchoolMatch®. With family-friendly attractions such as Texas’ largest Hot Air Balloon Festival and great mom-and-pop dining options, Plano has a real sense of community in the city.” (12/1/2011)
