Frisco, TX: What to do and where to go

In the midst of the current pandemic, it’s incumbent upon everyone to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. With a “stay at home” order in place, it simply makes good sense to stay away from crowds and opt for safer ways to do certain activities. Rather than dining out, for instance, opt for curbside pickup and delivery of food.

While Frisco–like the rest of America–is going through this rough spot, there’s no doubt that it’s bound to come through this challenge stronger than ever. Here are some exciting activities to bookmark for better days.

Sports Galore

If you’re a sports enthusiast, you’ll be right in your element in Frisco. Here, you’ll find all sorts of athletic pursuits, such as football, baseball, basketball, and hockey and everything in between. With several professional sports teams calling Frisco home, you can attend a game and cheer on your favorite team, or watch them in practice. Or spend a day having a look-see at the Ford Center at The Star, where the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys reign supreme. Soccer fans can watch FC Dallas at the Toyota Stadium, home to the National Soccer Hall of Fame. The 24,000-square foot museum and event center prides itself in having more than 400 prized soccer artifacts.

Other sports that have a particularly strong presence here are baseball at the Dr Pepper Ballpark; hockey at the Dr Pepper StarCenter; and basketball at the Comerica Center.

Dining

While there aren’t any dine out options just now, that hasn’t stopped the city’s finest food spots from serving up a storm. There are loads of uniquely Frisco joints that offer food on the go. Primary among them is EG Steak, which boasts the most divine southern Brazilian Gaucho-style roasted meat, Churrasco.

Fancy something a little lighter? Pick up a meal from the most “in” spot for a yummy brunch, the 5th Street Patio Café. Chicken and Waffles and their “oh so yummy” Captain Crunch French Toast are popular mainstays no one can seem to get enough of. For true-blue hearty Texas cooking, go for the Barnlight Eatery’s Buttermilk Fried Green Tomatoes, Shrimp and Grits, or Southern Fried catfish. Finish your meal off with the most exquisite desserts. This family-run restaurant has been at it for six generations, so they must be doing something right.

Shopping

Stonebriar Centre, one of the largest shopping centers in Frisco, is a 1.7-million-square-foot mall that features more than 200 stores. Drop by Riley Rose, Forever 21’s sister store that’s a hit with the Millennials and Generation Z. They’ve got wonderful little accessories, household items, and stationery galore. Or go ahead and squish to your heart’s delight at Dotdotbang, which offers the widest range of squishy toys in all of Texas. Got a hankering for something sweet? Lolli and Pop, as you might expect from its name, is candy heaven. Give their famous homegrown candy line, which includes flavors like chocolate and bacon, a try!

There is also a variety of malls and an abundance of smaller homegrown boutiques scattered all over the city.

Other Activities

Whether you’re in for a relaxing day at the spa, want to visit some museums or immerse yourself fully in arts and culture, Frisco has it all. Play a round of golf with your buddies, go for a wilderness trek, or skydiving or horseback riding. There’s certainly no shortage of things to do in Frisco, TX.
