Watch a Baseball Game . . . From a Lazy River

Take me out to the ballgame….in my swimsuit? That’s right. At Riders Field, home of the Frisco RoughRiders, you can hear the crack of the bat from the cool comfort of a 174-foot-long lazy river. The RoughRiders are the Texas Ranger’s AA affiliate, and the experience of watching them play is unique indeed. Riders Field has won numerous design awards for its amenities, including the Lazy River, the first-ever attraction of its kind at a professional sports stadium.

A leisurely float will keep you refreshed in the spring, and the pool is even heated on chillier nights. Grab a beverage and snack from the cabana and other nearby vendors. When you’re finished swimming, throw on official team colors of Scorched Red and Slate Blue. The RoughRiders’ season spans April to September, so you have lots of chances to catch the action.

Enjoy World-Class Shopping

Frisco is a shopper’s paradise with nine million square feet of shops spanning every possible taste, style, and price point. Lose yourself among the department stores, specialty retailers, and eateries of Stonebriar Centre, one of the largest malls in North Texas. If boutiques are more your speed, hit the Rail District and Frisco Square, pedestrian-friendly areas lined with local merchants selling everything from antiques and fashionable clothing to wrought-iron furniture and unusual flavors of popcorn.

Meanwhile, The Centre at Preston Ridge is a shop-lined walk beloved by fashionistas looking for that next Insta-worthy look. And if your home decor needs a refresher (or you’re craving some Swedish meatballs), stop by IKEA, the world’s leading source of Swedish-designed furnishings and housewares.

When you’re in the need for some retail therapy, Frisco is just the place for you.

Play in a City Run by Kids

Kids rule the world in KidZania, a simulated “city” where they can, for the day, become a veterinarian, a firefighter, an intelligence officer, or one of nearly 100 other careers. Home to the only KidZania location in the country, this one-of-a-kind attraction will entertain, inspire, and capture the imagination of kids four to 14 with its immersive activities. Watch as your youngsters absorb all sorts of skills, including financial literacy, teamwork, critical thinking, and independence as they have fun and make some new friends along the way.
