This list is a little stale, 2000 to 2009. Still meaningful, and I am sure that the Texas cities are doing well, but some of the California and Florida cities on this list are no longer growing.

Very interesting, Frisco, McKinney, Round Rock, and Denton are all on the list, with Frisco being #1 and McKinney #2 respectively. It truly is amazing how much growth there has been in Collin County over the past decade. I remember one time back in the early 90's I drove through McKinney headed towards Dallas and it was way out there all by itself back then, and a small town at that...lol.

Yes, it once was a pretty little town. Now it's another Plano. Is that a good thing? Sure, for commerce.

In the past Frisco was a 2a town probably 1a and recently transformed to a wealthy Dallas suburb,With a population over 100,000.




There is also a couple more suburbs in northern D.F.W. as well.

Think long-term instead: Celina.

As long as gas prices remain extremely cheap overall, and people continue to be accepting of living 5 feet from their neighbors with tiny yards and no trees, then there is no reason to believe that the northern burbs of the metroplex might one day expand all the way into Oklahoma!!

The fastest growing city of the 2000's is now in big trouble due to overbuilding. Las Vegas' bust is a lesson in history!
