After moving from Denver to Allen, TX three years ago, I can say that I wouldn't change the decision for anything. I love the area, and the people who live in the city are as friendly as if I had known them for years. One of the negative things about the city is that everything is spaced out. In order to get from one part of town to another, I need a car. There is public transportation, but it can be difficult to find a seat, especially in the early morning hours.
I have found that this is a town for golfers. There are so many courses for beginners to those who should be in the professional league. TopGolf is one of the most popular courses, especially for those who have played extensively, and there are several events held through the year that I have seen. Twin Creeks has one of the largest clubs in the area for golfers. I'm a person who loves shopping, and when I moved here, I was thrilled to discover Allen Premium Outlets. This is a large mall that has some of the name brand stores that you would expect to find in larger cities. The prices are unbeatable as it's an outlet mall. Many of the items for sale are leftovers from the larger stores, which is why the prices are so cheap. Avoid going during the holiday season as it gets very busy. My favorite place to shop in the outlet mall is Abercrombie and Fitch. Walters Creek is another area that has small stores and restaurants. This is an area where I can park my car and walk from one business to another.
