1.  FRISCO ROUGHRIDERS– When it comes to ballparks, there’s not much like that of Frisco’s Dr Pepper Ballpark. Home of the Frisco RoughRiders, the Dr Pepper Ballpark has seen some great improvements over the past few years, and it’s become one of the top fields in minor league baseball. With a unique design, exciting features, and an incredible setting, the ballpark is nearly unmatched.

What truly sets Dr Pepper Ballpark apart from the rest is some of its newest additions, including a lazy river pool out in right field, among other interesting updates.

2. IFLY– Experience the thrill of skydiving with out jumping out of a plane at IFly in Plano.  This state of the are facility is perfect for the thrill seeker and the faint of heart alike because it’s a fun, safe and exhilarating experience.

3. GO APE TREE TOP ADVENTURE– Go Ape Treetop Adventure is way more than just zip lines. It’s a 2-3-hour journey through the forest canopy as you take on suspended obstacles, Tarzan swings and breathtaking zip lines – all with an incredible view of the public parks.

4. SHOPS AT LEGACY– Stroll through LuLuLemon, Urban Outfitters, and Kendra Scott plus many other tantalizing boutiques and delicious restaurants.

5. TOP GOLF– the premier golf entertainment complex where the competition of sport meets your favorite local hangout. You can challenge your friends and family to addictive point-scoring golf games that anyone from the hopeful pro golfer to your neighbor’s 7-year-old kid can play year-round. Just picture a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets in the ground. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out you hit your microchipped balls, the more points you receive. Score even bigger with Topgolf’s extensive food and beverage menu that is sure to impress even the pickiest foodies. It’s not golf – it’s Topgolf. Give it a shot!
