Travel Tips for Plano

Well after arriving by train...

by ladygolfer

Well after arriving by train to Plano, I settled in with my girlfriend and her family and rested for a few days, after spending 2 nights and days on the train. My best memory of Plano has to be the sizes of the houses, compared to back in New Zealand they are huge.

New spice in town

by virtualling about Iravat Indian Bistro

This North Indian restaurant opened recently.. end of June 2007. The interior looks posh and cozy. I haven't had a chance to try eating at this place just yet, but if you've been here, do share your reviews.

It's a couple of doors away from Asia World and next door to Little Szechuan Restaurant.

Refer to the 2nd picture posted for business hours.

A Restful Plaza

by keeweechic

Down the end of the shops is a little paved plaza with wrought iron bench seats, a couple of sculptures and a small low water wall. There are some trees for shade and just a nice little area for sitting out and watching the world go by.

Keeweechic's Plano

by keeweechic

Plano has become one of the best places for businesses to set up their companies as well as families to live and work. It was named the 4th most ‘kid-friendly’ city in the US. The city was also named the 8th safest city in the US. Plano is only 20 miles north of downtown Dallas.

The history of Plano began in the early 1840’s with most of the pioneers originating from Kentucky and Tennessee who made their way to Collin County’s blackland prairie. Indian attacks delayed their settlement until 1844. In 1846 William Foreman bought land from Sanford Beck just north east of Plano and it was due to the families enterprise that Plano began. Many more people came to help form the community and mail service was established around 1850. The original name for the community was Fillmore which was rejected, then Foreman was suggested but this was declined by William. Plano was chosen because it was thought that the name in Spanish meant ‘plain’ which described the terrain around the area. This was approved and so began the community of Plano.

Plano has come a long way from the days of just raising livestock. Churches and schools were built and local businesses began to prosper. The fires in the business district of the 1880’s destroyed a lot of the original buildings but with determination, the reconstruction began and the old wooden buildings were replaced with modern brick ones and business continued to flourish. After the 1970’s, Plano became one of the fastest growing cities in Texas and in the U.S. Because of the meticulous planning and development, many professionals and executives began moving to the city. Large corporations have settled in the area and the growth has been amazing. The city still retains its charm and history in the old downtown area.
