Frisco has been named the best and safest city in the U.S. to be stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, while McKinney and Plano also cracked the Top 10, according to a list by the lawn care service company LawnStarter.

The company ranked the 150 most populated cities in the U.S. using 29 metrics split into five categories: community safety, health and wellness, natural hazards, financial safety and digital security.

The report describes Frisco as the country’s “worst-kept secret” because of its rapid growth and its frequent appearances in online lists like this one.

Neighbors McKinney and Plano came in at No. 3 and No. 8, respectively.
