In 1878, a small area near the brush lands just outside of Dallas, Texas was the site of the first train robbery. Today, Allen is one of the wealthiest and fastest-growing suburbs in northern Texas. Rated one of the best places to live, Allen’s rough history is the stuff great stories are made of, but beautiful neighborhoods, landscaped parks, and a top-ranked public school system define Allen today.
The Allen Americans are a CHL hockey team affiliated with the Dallas Stars. Cheer them on at the Allen Event Center! The Event Center is conveniently located in the Village at Allen — a great shopping district with stores, restaurants, a Canine Common Dog Park, a labyrinth in the shape of Texas, and hiking and biking trails.
Allen Station Park contains a visitor center, roller-hockey rinks, a BMX track, and the largest skate park in Texas. If you prefer less extreme sports, Chase Oaks is an award-winning, 27-hole public golf course. Or go rock climbing, visit a pumpkin patch, or perhaps visit the petting zoo. Try the waterslide at the Natatorium, visit the science museum, or go horseback riding.
With so much to do, you won’t get bored living in Allen! With several apartment renting options and more to come, this dynamic city in Collin County is sure to have the perfect new place for you.
