You can take a tour through Plano’s downtown historic area – either walk or drive. There are over a dozen restored homes, most of which are designated as local historic landmarks, as well as the Interurban Museum and the shopping district. You can get a visual guide from the Plano website.
Snap pictures of the stores, products, interior, exterior or whatever and then you post the pictures on VT. Write some honest reviews and hope the stuff you post will be helpful to other members. (No matter how boring you think the place is, that's besides the point).
If you feel like a dud and just wanna stay in, may I suggest you bake some muffins.
Doodle for that 30 minutes before the oven beeps.
And if for some reason you don't like baking and cooking and it's summer, go to Sixflags at Arlington. Go on some (more adult) rides and scream it all out, whatever's pent up inside. Just be careful not to choke on your own saliva.
Ok, ok... don't like rides. Then browse the stores at Sixflags and put on the t-shirts you think you like but don't feel like paying more than $20 for. And then get someone to take a picture of you in the apparels.
Never too cheap-o to do that.
Look, if all else fails... you know what I'll tell you to do.

I'm a Starbucks goer.
You can be one too.
There is one at Barnes & Noble at Preston Road. I love the aroma of freshly brewed coffee but it's very distracting when I'm trying to browse magazines for free. So, I'd end up having to buy more coffee than I actually need.
What? The magazines?
No, I need the magazines more than coffee.

JC Penny famous quote is:

The Plano Jail Facility which was built in 1996 is one of the largest holding facilities in the Dallas. It provides 70 beds and processes over 6000 prisoners each year. Plano actually maintains one of the lowest crime rates for Texas cities over 100,000 in population.
The museum is free (or give a donation) and group tours are available. The Texas Electric Railway ran between Denison and Waco during the years 1908 to 1948. It linked Dallas to the smaller cities. The building which was completed in 1908 has been restored to its original condition and houses memorabilia of railway history. Outside of museum is an electric interurban railway car, which is not open to public.
Open Monday through Friday, 10:00am to 2:00pm, and Saturday, 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Haggard Park was donated to the City of Plano in 1928 and it has been expanded and improved in the past 15 years. Its just a small park at the foot of the main shopping area but there is a lovely gazebo. The park was expanded and improved in 1986 to supplement Texas Sesquicentennial activities. The gazebo, fountain and trolley car are popular park attractions.
Where the bandstand is now, there once was a spring which was surrounded by small homes built as rental houses.
Down the end of the shops is a little paved plaza with wrought iron bench seats, a couple of sculptures and a small low water wall. There are some trees for shade and just a nice little area for sitting out and watching the world go by.
The shops up and down the main street are delightful, even before you get inside the window displays will catch your eye and at Christmas of course even more effort goes in. There is just the most delightful collection of antique/knickknack/ornament stores, galleries and a costume store there. There are some lovely little tearooms inside some of the stores.
Another Queen Anne style home of 2 and a half storey’s, built in 1898. It was restored by former Mayor James Edwards and his family in the1970's.
This is a Queen Anne style home which was built in 1901. It was later purchased by one of Plano’s early civic leaders who had columns added to the front porch.
A time capsule has been placed in Haggard Park by the City’s Heritage Commission to be opened in the year 2100.
