It’s time for a break!
Since the new year began, our Frisco kids have been working hard at school, navigating academics and social challenges. Parents, too, have been juggling lunch box preparation, homework and extra-curricular activities on top of their other grown-up responsibilities.
We’re all ready for spring break! For some households, a week off from school means the freedom to catch up on quality family time and maybe even take a quick vacation. For other households, there may be a need to schedule a couple of organized activities to balance the kids’ free time and keep them away from electronic devices.

Why not plan a spontaneous vacation (without booking a flight)?
Ready to explore your own hometown?
The Frisco Bucket List includes some great ideas on exploring your hometown, and now we have bunches of new spaces to explore in our ever-growing city. Try some of the many new restaurants in town, or explore The Star in Frisco. There you can toss a football on the Ford Center Plaza, take a tour of Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, check out the Ring of Honor, or try one of the many restaurants on-site (many of which of patios).
Get a head start on summer and go swimming! The Frisco Athletic Center Indoor Aquatic Center will be available over spring break! Or, if you have a child who loves trains, you must check out the many local spots that feature the railroad!
And don’t forget our local parks and trails! On a nice day, it’s hard to beat an expansive park for relaxation and fun. Pick up some burgers (we can recommend a few good ones), and enjoy them outside. Throw a frisbee, kick a ball, go for a walk, or feed the ducks.
In addition to boasting Frisco’s largest playground system and Hope Park, Frisco Commons Park also offers a scenic picnic area, pond, and walking trail. Or, walk among the ‘hero-sized’ sculptures at Central Park, which provides a nice break if you’ve been doing some shopping nearby.
