Frisco continues to establish itself as one of the best and brightest emerging suburbs around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The remarkable growth spurt the city has enjoyed over the decade or so hasn’t been a simple, one-dimensional economic/population boom — it’s been rapid momentum that has brought a slew of awesome activities and fun to be had in and around the city! As an influx of culture continues to make its mark and more stellar things to do find their place in the ever-growing city, residents will always have an exceptional list to choose from. Let’s explore some of the attractions in Frisco to check out!
Minor league baseball is already known as a popular pastime for many small city sports fans throughout the United States. Aside from the general leisure to be found in simply grabbing a hot dog and watching a little baseball, there’s quite a bit of local pride and love for these teams, and the Frisco RoughRiders are no exception. Those are reasons enough to check out a game at Dr. Pepper Ballpark. In addition, this arena has a major one-of-a-kind twist to it in the form of an actual lazy river above the right field. You can sit in the water, eat, and drink to your heart’s content, and support the local team.
Although many of the activities, shops, and places to be found in the Stonebriar Centre are by no means unique to Frisco or even the state of Texas, the sheer size and quality of this shopping mall and entertainment plaza makes it an interesting stop for just about any group of people. It features almost 200 stores and shops, including a 60,000-square-foot Dave and Buster’s arcade. If nothing else, it’s a good backup for a rainy day best spent inside.
Sticking with the sports theme from above, The Star is the 91-acre world-class headquarters for the Dallas Cowboys, otherwise known as “America’s team.” Football fans of any team affiliation will enjoy a trip through this spectacle of a compound, including the practice facility and an indoor football arena.
Fancy a challenging game of bowling? Grab some friends and head over to Strikz for a modern, upscale experience on their state-of-the-art lanes, as well as 12 boutique lanes. With 43,000 square feet of space, make sure to also explore other game options, including laser tag, an arcade, and billiards. Plus, their food and drink menu is fantastic — pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, tacos, and great appetizers.
Perfect for those looking for outings suitable for kids and families, the Play Street Museum is a facility featuring many different real-life playhouses. There’s a grocery store, a firetruck, several houses, a school, and more, with much of it being inspired by real locations in the city of Frisco. This is a great way to spend a day with a group of younger ones!
