Home Family Staycation in Texas

Staycation in Texas

We ended up in Frisco, Texas for three nights for spring break this year. 

Coming soon after the COVID pandemic was ending, there was not enough time to plan much of a trip for the kids – everything was getting expensive, with inflation in typical beach places.  I opted for a local choice and Frisco (north Dallas) seemed like it might be fun.   Why not?

Only three hours away by car from Austin, Frisco is about a half hour north of Dallas. We stayed at the Hyatt House Frisco.  I had enjoyed the Hyatt House concept in Seattle over the summer.  While Frisco Hyatt House wasn’t as cleverly designed as their Seattle location, it worked great with a large two bedrooms.

Stonebriar Mall across the street was like a blast from the past albeit modern and clean.  It’s one of the largest malls I’ve ever seen in awhile – very busy, just like the golden era of malls.  It was nice just to walk around with like people again.

Frisco itself seems to be like a boomtown –  there was massive construction everywhere. Frisco apparently has a large Korean community,  as there were lots of Korean restaurants. As much as I love Asian food from Chinese to Vietnamese to Thai, Korean food is one exception I’m not too keen on it.  I did try a Korean hot dog at the mall called K-Dog.  Deep fried and sprinkled with sugar, the deep fried K-Dog hot dog was too messy and taste was off putting.  Sorry, Korea.  I tried.

National Videogame Museum was awesome.  I loved that place. 

Hurts Donuts for lunch.  Yes, donuts for lunch.

Hope Park – fun park for kids, nice playground, we spent an hour.

Dilla Quesadillas – delicious franchise concept. 

Frisco Diner – good eats for lunch
