Fun weekend ideas in Frisco to keep summer fun going strong

The kids are back at school, the sun is setting a little earlier and football season is fast approaching. But there’s still plenty of summer fun in friscoand all the time it takes to tick a few more boxes off your seasonal wish list.

Plan a weekend in Frisco with these activities in mind:

Explore the Star District
The Star in Frisco, home of the Dallas Cowboys, offers more than 35 restaurants, shops and specialty services.

Its delicious dining options currently include Mi Cocina, The Common Table and Sushi Marquee, and The Star features a number of new restaurants opening throughout 2022.

  • One of the most recently opened is Lombardi Cucina Italiana, which has an atmosphere reminiscent of an open-air villa in Italy and a menu offering authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist.
  • The Glen Restaurant and Monarch Stag (its adjacent scotch bar) are also now open. The Glen Restaurant offers hand-pressed craft cocktails, wine, Scotch and seafood, while Monarch Stag offers food, live music, a cigar lounge and selections of Scotch whiskey and bourbon of the whole world.
  • Coming soon is Tricky Fish, a stylish and casual seafood restaurant that believes in great food and simply prepared fresh ingredients.
  • Also on the program is the Snowbird Cocktail Lounge & Kitchen, an upscale Art Deco-inspired lounge with a tantalizing array of mixological cocktails, small bites and music.
  • Finally, Sidecar Social is a fun outdoor concept featuring craft cocktails and bites, games, karaoke, live music, TVs and an all-weather patio.

From unique sports fan stores to boutiques and lounges, The Star offers plenty of shopping opportunities.

  • Fans United is the ultimate store where sports enthusiasts can find gear and accessories from their favorite teams (that is, of course, the Dallas Cowboys).

  • Flea Style is a 6,200 square foot retail store filled with handmade, vintage and unique lifestyle products and apparel. Inside you will also find the Hat Bar, where you can create your own personalized hat.

  • Monkee’s is a new boutique for women offering footwear, apparel and accessories, and is set to open in 2022.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to put on your football cleats and play for the Dallas Cowboys?

Star Tours at The Star in Frisco give you the ultimate fan experience while providing an intimate insight into what it’s like to be part of Team USA. After a break, guided tours are back with three options for football fans.

Catch a game or two
Frisco is “The City That Gambles” and home to many of Dallas’ professional sports teams. Naturally, this means that sports take place all year round. In the summer you can catch:

  • FC Dallas play at Toyota Stadium – mark your calendars, as their final home game of the Major League Soccer season is on October 9.

  • Baseball’s regular season is winding down, with the Frisco RoughRiders playing their final home game at Riders Field on September 11. There’s no baseball experience like a summer’s day at Riders Field, especially with its lazy river, big enough to hold 1,267,973 baseballs.

Summer fun by the pool
There’s still plenty of time to spend a few more days at the pool this summer, and a weekend at a hotel with a pool makes it even easier.

When it comes to hotels in Frisco with outdoor pools, you’re spoiled for choice. There are over 25 hotels to choose from, and most of them have refreshing outdoor pools so you can enjoy the fresh air and stay cool at the same time. Choose from:

  • The Hyatt Regency Frisco is connected to the 200 shops and restaurants at the Stonebriar Center if you want to add a little shopping to your weekend. The swimming pool has comfortable poolside sun loungers available for easy reservation.
  • The Omni Frisco Hotel features an elevated pool overlooking the Tostitos Championship Plaza, a replica of the Dallas Cowboys’ 50-yard synthetic turf pitch at the Star. You’re just steps away from year-round entertainment, including The Star tours we mentioned above.

  • There’s also the Westin Stonebriar Golf Resort & Spa, a great place if you’re looking for a golf weekend at Fazio’s course or want to stay in a hotel with a huge outdoor pool. A favorite here is the giant waterslide, but for a more relaxed approach, hang out poolside in a private cabana or play garden games on the event lawn.

Play volleyball at Frisco Rail Yard
Part food truck party, part backyard party, part picnic, all fun: Frisco Rail Yard is the perfect place to hang out with family and friends. This park offers food from the best food trucks in the area, outdoor games for families, live music and fun events. This year, the park even has new sand volleyball courts to really replicate that beach vibe.
