You can shop until you drop, eat like a king, and share great times with friends and family at the Shops at Legacy, Willow Bend Mall, or in quaint, old-fashioned, downtown Plano. You can find everything from a small pizzeria to a high-end steakhouse, such Bob’s Steak and Chop House. Make sure to check out Central Market for fresh fruits and vegetables after you’ve settled into your apartment in Plano. You are likely to see a cooking demonstration, and the place is a foodie’s dream.
The city is on the DART rail and downtown Dallas is just a DART rail ride away. There are a number of major employers in the city, including the headquarters for JC Penney, Frito-Lay, and Dr. Pepper.
