After booking your short-term rental in Plano, here's everything you need to know for your trip.

A city of a quarter million just north of Dallas and part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, Plano is a business hub with a convention center that draws significant numbers of visitors every year, and it’s home to some of the top companies in the nation. It’s also increasingly known for its food and shopping as a real estate boom continues to spur development in the area.

Before Europeans arrived, the region that now encompasses Plano was inhabited by the Caddo people. Starting in the 18th century, the territory of Texas frequently changed hands. Spain claimed it, then France claimed it (without making significant inroads), then Mexico won its independence from Spain. After that, the area flew the flag of the Republic of Texas. The Confederate flag followed, and the flag of the United States of America eventually prevailed.

For over a century, Plano was a sparsely populated farming community with some basic industry. Its name comes from the Spanish word for “flat” thanks to the evenness and emptiness of the treeless landscape it sat in. In the late nineteenth century, a railroad station in Plano led to a minor influx of residents, but not long afterward a fire destroyed the town’s stores.

n the 1970s, Plano’s fortunes began to change as part of the larger economic boom that had overtaken the U.S. since World War II. Since then, the city has seen exponential growth and development, becoming one of Dallas’ biggest suburbs. But Plano is also a city in its own right, with major employers relocating to Plano to take advantage of its workforce and infrastructure, with Dallas right next door. The city has excellent restaurants, attractions, and entertainment, and there are great short-term rental options near it all.
