Frisco Things to Do

  • Historic Downtown

    The downtown area isn’t great and it’s a reasonable distance from the major and more modern shopping areas like Stonebriar Mall and all the shopping areas across from it. A lot of the original buildings however have been restored. The shops you will find will sell antiques, clothing, quilting supplies and gifts. There are some good restaurants...

    more
  • Texas Sculpture Garden

    This is a free park with sculpture done by Texas artists. There are both indoor and outdoor sculptures. We took our granddaughter here to see them one day. She enjoyed the more representational ones. There is a map of the outdoor sculpture locations, and each exhibit has the name and the name of the artist. The one named Staples (2nd picture) also...

    more
  • Hall Office Park

    Driving through Hall Office Park you will see the oddest sculptures dotting beautifully manicured lawns and landscaped gardens. It is almost like a small city. There are 37 which have produced by some of Texas’ most famous artists.

    more
  • Central Park

    This park is located on Parkwood drive and spreads out across 8 acres next to the Hampton Inn & Suites. In the rolling grassy landscape you will find many historic quotes on the concrete steps and walkways, several water fountains, an amphitheatre and most notably the large sized bronzed sculptures and relief murals, all depicting the Shawnee...

  • Frisco Bridges

    Frisco Bridges is a new complex which incorporates office and retail outlets. You see these structures around the newer Frisco areas. The development will also include a hotel and family oriented attractions. There are a number of these developments springing up in Frisco.

    more
  • Watering Holes

    The grounds undulate in parts and on the highest point there are two recreated watering holes which cascade down both sides of the hill. These are an attempt to recreate where the cattlemen would stop during the trail drives.

    more
  • Indian Trail

    The trail was originally used by Indians in their hunting and raiding. After settlers arrived, they called the route the Texas Road. The first drovers then renamed the route several times to the ‘cattle trail’, the Sedalia Trail and the Kansas Trail and it is uncertain why it over time became known as the Shawnee Trail.

  • Rough Riders Baseball Park

    Frisco RoughRiders Professional Baseball, the Texas Rangers’ Double-A Affiliate, announced today that they are the first team in sports history to bring the bullpen right into the seats behind first and third bases. “This is unheard of. We’ve never seen another ballpark with both bullpens built right in the stands with fans surrounding them on all...

    more
  • Shawnee Trail

    This was the earliest principal route of the Texas longhorn cattle drive which began going through this area around 1840. The cattle were driven from Austin through Waco and Dallas up north along the eastern edge of Oklahoma (as it is now) and up to Kansas City or to Sedalia, Missouri where there were railroad facilities for transporting the herd...

  • Cowhide Tablecloths

    This is a good restaurant for us because they have lots of games for children to play with while they are waiting for a table or for food. The restaurant is decorated with stags heads, antlers, wagon wheels and a large stuffed bear. The tables are covered with black and white fake cowhide, and you get chips to start with while you are waiting for...

  • Family Style

    My father-in-law took us here to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. My father-in-law likes this place because the decor is somewhat raunchy. There are pictures of men in speedos who basically overflow the fabric, and one of a kangaroo's balls. Some of the ones that are just pin-ups are in photo 4.The ladies room (which my father-in-law has not...

  • Metal Decorations

    Our daughter bought this iron star for their family room/living room downstairs because she thought it appropriate for a cowboy/Texas based room. She had to go up and look up the charge slip in order to remember the name of the company that produced it. I took some pictures of it as we were speeding by in the car, but the name wasn't visible in my...

Frisco Warnings and Dangers

  • Kodi01's Profile Photo

    by Kodi01 Written Feb 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I first moved to Texas, this highway through this city was just corn fields.

    It is just north of Plano which holds most major corporate headquarters like EDS, Dr Pepper, JC Penny, and Frito Lay. (to name a few)

Then the house they used burned down. The owner hastily started to rebuild it.But the producers of the show needed to have the some footage of the ranch house...

  • Frisco vs. Dallas

    Frisco is technically off the beaten path from Dallas. Although I would never characterize Dallas as a hotbed for tourist activity, Frisco is definitely a sleepy town comparitively. Over the next couple years this may shift, as sporting venues such as the Dallas Stars and FC Dallas Soccer team starts migrating out this way. For more information on...
