Frisco, Texas, may be a suburb of Dallas, but it offers the best of a small-town scene with all of the activities of a larger city. It has high-quality schools in a safe and family-friendly city. Frisco's new construction is booming, and there are opportunities for new residential developments. It has lots of green space and neighborhood parks to enjoy while still close to the city — if you come to Frisco, you may be looking for ways to escape the city, wind down, and relax.
Here are some of the best opportunities in Frisco where you can relax, enjoy, and rejuvenate.
Be a floating spectator
Relax with a drink in your hand while you float on an inner tube through a figure-eight channel surrounding two islands. While you’re here, you can catch a baseball game. Wait, what? Yes, it’s true! The Choctaw Lazy River is part of the Rough Riders Stadium, where you can be one of their floating spectators. From the river, you have a 270-degree view of the stadium.
The water is heated, the bar is close, and on-duty lifeguards ensure the safety of kids and adults. Take the whole family for a relaxing day in the water while enjoying the game. On Thursdays and Sundays, kids get all-they-can-eat hot dogs that they can eat in the river. It’s the best of everything and close to Frisco homes for sale.
Smell the wildflowers
The Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt goes through wetlands, off-channel ponds, and Blackland Prairie. It connects to Oak Point Nature Preserve, where you can see nature at its best, including the vibrant Texas wildflower fields. Take a relaxing stroll or casual bike ride anywhere along the 8.5-mile trail through Plano. The course is wide and paved for easy riding or walking with platforms to pull over, relax, and watch wildlife. Or, you can relax along the water while fishing — the ponds are stocked with blueGill sunfish, red ear, and largemouth bass. Frisco’s new construction will begin phase two development in Villages of Creekwood, just ten minutes from Cottonwood Creek Greenbelt.
Frisco Square is 147 acres of retail, restaurants, office space, and Frisco's new construction residential units. At Nerdvana, sip on a cocktail or a cup of freshly roasted coffee while playing your favorite retro video games. Snack on a flatbread or Southern fried chicken and biscuits made from scratch. Or, relax with fine bourbon and cigars at En Fuego Tobacco Shop. They have a large selection of premium cigars and a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy them in. If you find your favorite cigar, you can continue to order them from their online store. Aside from a quiet space and your next favorite book, the Frisco Library has Makerspace, where you can use the 3D printer, the laser cutter, or the CNC mill and pick up a new relaxing hobby.
Escape to the center
Central Park is a seven-acre oasis in the center of the city. It’s most famous for the bronze statues celebrating the cowboys who traveled through the Shawnee Trail. Venture further into the park and escape the noise of the city. Relax near one of the two waterfalls running into the bubbling brook. The park has beautiful green spaces and walking trails around the lake, where you can watch the snow-white egrets play in the water. Even though Central Park is in the middle of town, it’s only 16 minutes from Frisco new construction at stately Collinsbrook Farm.
There are multiple courses to enjoy a game of golf in Frisco. Frisco Lakes Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course. The front nine is in the Del Webb Frisco Lakes Community, where you can find extraordinary Frisco homes for sale. The back nine weaves through open countryside for a relaxing game that suits all skill levels. For the finest golf experience, try the Fazio Course designed by Tom Fazio. The greens are subtly contoured and feature native grass. Fazio’s design contains dramatic landforms and masterful bunkers. The Trails of Frisco Golf Club is an 18-hole course in the scenic wetlands with dramatic bunkers. The course at the Plantation Golf Club was designed to blend in with the rolling hills of Frisco, featuring nine ponds that provide beauty and strategic diversity.
Rejuvenate at the spa
Frisco has a spa for just about every type of experience, from a simple massage boutique to salt therapy, traditional Hamam spas, and luxurious resort-style spas. At Maroc Hamam Spa, enjoy Moroccan tea and baklava before hitting the steam room and getting a body scrub. The Salt Retreat uses dry salt therapy to heal the skin and provide relief from allergies. Relax in an anti-gravity, heated recliner in a room with glowing salt walls and let the dry salt mist melt away your stress. Children can also enjoy the benefits of salt therapy while they play on the “sandy” salt beach.
