4) Frisco, Texas
If you’re hoping to buy your first home in a town that’s close to downtown Dallas, Frisco is a good choice for you. This suburban town of 154,000 residents is home to the Dallas Cowboys Headquarters. The median home price is $364,000. Plus, Frisco is only a 25-minute drive from both DFW International Airport and Love Field Airport. There’s also lots to do in Frisco itself. The town hosts many community events throughout the year, including Christmas in the Square in December, and a food street festival in spring. Plus, every second Saturday of the month, the Texas Astronomical Society hosts a stargazing party where you can meet members of the community and get amazing views of the night sky. The town of Frisco may be large, but it still has a small-town feel to it.
