Allen’s population of 95,000 enjoy manicured developments with picturesque homes. With quick access to the Sam Rayburn Tollway / State Highway 121 and US Highway 75, Allen residents can easily commute across the Metroplex. Most of the Allen students are serviced by the Allen Independent School District, while Lovejoy ISD and Plano ISD serve the remaining students. The Allen Eagles, who were high school football champions three years in a row, play in the 18,000 capacity Allen Eagle Stadium.

 

Entertainment: While Texas snow days are uncommon, you can find Allen residents enjoying the Allen Community Ice Rink. The full-size ice rink measures 85 feet by 200 feet with a general seating capacity for over 300 spectators, which provides the perfect place for afternoon ice skating or competitive hockey leagues. 

Moving from the frozen ice to a liquid lounge, Hydrous cable park is an oasis for wakeboarders. With a beginner system, a pro shop and a shaded beach, enthusiast and spectators alike can find a home at Hydrous.

Another must see area is The Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm. It is a resort-style development with a creekside village, interactive public art, a tree house play area and a unique mix of retail shops & restaurants with water views. 

Head on over to The Village at Allen for one of the most unique shopping, dining and entertainment destinations in North Texas. It has everything and more with its one-of-a-kind specialty stores, lush park, Texas-shaped hedge maze, dog park, children’s playhouses and outdoor fireplace with comfortable seating.

 

Historical: European immigrants came to Allen in the 1840s looking for free land. They traveled to Allen using the Texas Road and the Central Nation Road, which were built by the Republic of Texas. Allen was named for Ebenezer Allen, the former Texas attorney general and promoter of the Houston and Texas Central Railroad that was built alongside Allen in 1872. Texas’ first train robbery took place in Allen on February 22, 1878, when Sam Bass and his associates pillaged the train. While Allen has continued to evolve over the years, history buffs can take the Allen Heritage Guild’s 15 stop driving tour to see some of Allen’s top historical highlights.
