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
