Yeah, August has to come ’round some time, and par for the course in Texas, temps will get above 100 for several days in a row at least. So, to beat the heat, here are our Top Five ways to keep your (and your kids’) cool:
1. Frisco Athletic Center Pool: The pool area in the FAC is almost like an entire waterpark. With three separate indoor pools (a lap pool, a toddler/splash pool, and an adult “water walking” pool) plus an outdoor water amusement park area with slides, water fountains, and jungle gyms, your little people have the option to catch a few rays or take the splashy fun back inside all while under the expert lifeguard supervision of the Frisco Athletic Center staff.
2. Dr. Pepper StarCenter Ice Rink: Put it all on ice with ice skating sessions. One of the main attractions at Dr Pepper StarCenter, public skating is great exercise and an opportunity to get out of the house. Are you an adult looking to learn to skate? Or, do you have children yearning to skate like the pros? If so, the folks here love to teach and their instructors are top notch. For beginners they usually focus on providing the basics, while for more advanced skaters, they focus on proper form, technique and getting you ready to meet your goals. Lace ’em up and come glide away.
3. Bahama Bucks: The original shaved ice company is here to flavor your life. Kids of all ages will melt into frosty glee with a cup of frozen paradise in flavors like Strawberry Shortcake, Dreamsickle, Cherry Colada, Blue Bubblegum, Hurricane Daiquiri, Key Lime Pie, and Sugar Cookie to name a few. At the heart of Bahama Buck’s menu is their island-inspired world-famous Sno – shaved ribbons of soft, fluffy Sno, generously showered with one of more than 91 Bahama Buck’s proprietary gourmet flavors. Sophisticated and savory, shaved ice has a much finer and creamier texture than what you get in a “slurpee”-type drink. This is definitely not the snow cone truck jingling through your neighborhood.
4. Story Time at Frisco Library: Inspiring intellect, curiosity, and inspiration, Story Time in the Frisco Library allows parents to take a break from the heat, while entertaining the kids with books, puppets, and stories. Enlivening the imagination and stimulating the senses, children aged 18 months to kindergarten can enjoy stories from morning ’til 7pm “Bedtime Story Time” with pajama-attire encouraged.
5. Frisco Fieldhouse: As the ultimate indoor sports experience, Fieldhouse USA is a $17-million, 144,620 square-foot indoor sports facility. With 11 full-size basketball/volleyball courts, the largest indoor turf in the metroplex, Fieldhouse has year-round youth and adult sport leagues. Offering cutting edge sport technology, the Fieldhouse hosts local and nationwide tournaments plus elite training experiences for recreational and competitive leagues. Check out Fieldhouse for birthday parties, group outings, Lock-Ins, dodgeball tournaments, Taekwondo, baseball/softball training, QuickStartTennis, Tumble and Stunt, wi-fi facility, conference rooms, school dances, and much more.
And, if you decide not to take the kids out to make a splash, round the rink, sip some Sno, or sport it indoors, here at Lifestyle Frisco, we can also recommend that you make it mellow with a margarita (for you not the kids) and a patio.
