WHERE TO GET IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT
MERRY MAIN STREET:
On December 1, snap a photo with Santa, much on holiday treats and listen to Christmas carols at Simpson Plaza! Kiddos, bring a few bucks and head to the Kids Holiday Store, where you can buy your parents a present for under $5.
After admiring the twinkling lights at the Frisco Square, head to their outdoor skating rink to make memories on ice! Although Christmas in the Square wraps up on December 31, the skating rink will be open until January 7.
Forgot to pack that one blouse? Don’t like your holiday outfit as much as you thought you did? Don’t worry—this shopping center has you covered with big-name stores like Nordstrom Rack and Sacks off 5th.
Historic main street has several little boutiques that are great for finding gifts (or a little something for yourself)! After shopping, soak in the history and wind down at Summer Moon—an adorable coffee shop.
This local Wine Bar and Kitchen is located in a little house in the heart of Historic Downtown Frisco. They have live music almost every evening, and half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays. Perfect for wine-ding down!
A visit to Frisco isn’t complete without a trip to The Star, Dallas Cowboys Headquarters. Grab a seat on City Works rooftop patio and chow down on a delicious meal while overlooking Tostitos Championship Plaza.
This new holiday tradition kicks off on November 23 with the first annual lighting of the Cowboys Christmas tree at The Star in Frisco! Then, on Fridays and Saturdays from November 23 – Dececember 22, you can watch a special holiday performance on Tostitos Championship Plaza, featuring the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
Now through December, the Dr. Pepper Ice Arena will open its doors to the public for fun times on the ice! If you don’t pride yourself on your skating skills, don’t worry—they have “bucket zones” where beginning skaters can learn how to be pros.
This may be known as the largest choreographed holiday lights and music show in North Texas, but it’s much more than that! After driving through the lights, you can step out of the car and onto the ice skating rink, or walk through snow flurries on Friday and Saturday nights from November 23 – December 31.
