Allen has two MAJOR things going for it: premium shopping outlets and one of only 12 wakeboard parks in the country. That’s right: you’re finally going to the Olympics. It’s the perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts with over 61 miles of trails and several parks, including Celebration Park which has lighted tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields and much more.
Allen is conveniently located between Frisco, McKinney and Plano, but is a little bit of a drive from Dallas, especially in traffic. It’s not a spot for nightlife, but if you can get by with great dining and shopping, you’ll love living here.
