Best Places for Out-Of-Towners

The Star 

1 Cowboys Way, Frisco, TX 75034 | 972.497.4060 

You’ve got visitors! People from another city or town or, gasp, out of state. Take them to The Star, and stat, for a good dose of Dallas Cowboys. Tour the Cowboys World Headquarters and the Ford Center, run around Tostitos Championship Plaza and, when you’re ready for a breather, shop for boots and premium leather goods, grab a bite to eat or lounge by the pool at Omni Frisco.

Readers’ Choice: Legacy West 

5905 Legacy Drive, Plano, TX 75024

It’s one-stop sightseeing — the perfect mix of down-home Texas restaurants with a luxury feel.
It’s no wonder Legacy West polled so high among readers, who loved that the area offered so darn much, calling it “the whole experience.” 

“So many spots for pictures, especially during special festivities. Great restaurants and ambiance.” — Karen F.
