Ugh! My husband and I keep going back and forth about where to buy property. We looked at some towns in TX and then started looking at TN b/c of the weather there. But we keep coming back to looking at TX. We both grew up here and have family here so it is tough to think of leaving (despite the HOT summers!) .

Well, now we've come across a great-looking property in Cisco, TX. We will probably take a drive out there soon, but I don't want to waste the gas if the town has a terrible reputation or something. Anyone here know anything about it - good or bad? I know it's wooded there, is it rolling or flat? What are the schools like? What's the atmosphere like as far as welcoming new residents? Is the city clean/well maintained?

Thanks!
Sonshine

Default Cisco or Frisco?

Hi Sonshine,

Is there an area called Cisco or could you possibly mean Frisco? Where are you from?

It's a REALLY small town called Cisco. It's in Eastland County. It is an hour east of Abilene. I thought I might get some responses on this board, since it is closer to FW than it is to Dallas, but no one seems to have heard of it. I didn't either until we found this property for sale. We live in the Ft. Worth area, we have a home on 3 acres right now and want to sell it and buy a lot more acreage.

Default Well...

Hi Sonshine,

Have you heard of Frisco? What do you know about this area? I am thinking about relocating to this area or Mc Kinney-Stonebridge Ranch!

Anyway, good luck on the sale of your home. I wish you well!

Thanks! I have read some stuff on here about Frisco. What I hear is that it's a great place, but growing VERY quickly, so it's pretty congested. You could do a search on the forum for Frisco or other cities your interested in.(There's a button on the top right side of the page you can click on - I just recently found it myself!).

My husband and I went to Mckinney for a little weekend getaway a couple years ago. We stayed in a really nice bed and breakfast downtown. They have a really neat little downtown square. That's all I really know about McKinney, though!

Hope this helps!
Sonshine

Lordy! Cisco is in the middle of nowhere! :-) It's closer to Abilene than FW. If you're dead-set on Cisco, you'd probably not like the DFW metroplex - way too many people. Unfortunately I cannot help you out on Cisco, I know nothing about it. You might check out the Abilene forums though. Best of luck.

I had a friend that lived in cisco and visited he and family several times when I lived in ElPason and was on my way to visit my parents in paris.
It is small but friendly and the people are easy to get to know.
If you want five star dining forget it or drive back to D/FW area. but if you enjoy a low crime area, quiet place to live and and a good place to raise kids (i Think) thats one of the places.
I am looking for a place just out of San Antonio, to the south. Ofcourse I am 65 and retired military now and just want to get back to almost anywhere in Texas. I am in Florida.....man does this SUX.Anyway...I think the town is about 6 0r 7000( not sure since I never took the time to count the folks.) I do not recall seeing a movie there...but then I have not been to a movie in years(that is what DVDs and TV are for). They had a cafe that my friend went to all the time...food was good, moderate in price and friendly people. I also recall seeing a couple of Super markets. But hey, Abilene is anly 50 or so miles west and they have anything you want.
All in all I liked it.
Good luck

anywhere, anywhere in Texas is better than Florida, or Georgia, or heck any of the Southern states.

I saw your post and wanted to see if I could help any... I live in Eastland County and I might can give you a little information about the general area. I have worked in Cisco, but it was several years ago. I do go thru their fairly often. I live out in the country on a farm, so ask any questions you would like and if I do not know the answers I will find out or find someone there that you can talk to that should know.
