A getaway on the cusp of Dallas

Frisco lies just north of Dallas in Texas and was first inhabited by the American pioneers who settled here after traveling by wagon trains along the old Shawnee Trail. Fast forward to today, and the city is booming. From your Frisco vacation rentals, you'll have access to sculpture gardens, sporting events, millions of square feet of retail therapy and family-friendly attractions that will keep the young, and young at heart, busy for the whole vacation. Frisco packs a punch when it comes to outdoor activities, with some of the best cycling trails and communities in Texas.

The city is home to some of the most fascinating and interactive museums in the state which house everything from a half-ton steam locomotive to the world's biggest Pong arcade console. You can also explore a 19th-century haunted house or walk into a hurricane force wind simulator.


Thousands of acres of parkland to explore

With over 1,000 acres of parkland in Frisco and more in the pipeline, there's no shortage of ways to discover nature in the city. The miles of natural trails are ideal for those who want to walk or jog and the city has been officially named as bike friendly by The League of American Bicyclists. You don't need to bring your own equipment – it's easy to find a bike rental store near your Frisco vacation rental and you can join the Shawnee Trail Cycling Club on one of their daily rides along paved routes to get an introduction to the city.


Warm spring and fall are best

The summers in Texas can be hot, but if you nab a Frisco vacation rental between September and November, you'll enjoy a pleasantly warm climate and the nearby Texas State Fair which runs in fall. Alternatively, consider a visit between March and May when the temperature is also at its most comfortable and the city is alive with blooming flowers. Winter is the low season in Frisco, but those who visit in this time are treated to a peaceful place, and the cool weather just gives you an excuse to dive into some of the state's best restaurants to warm up.

Natural features

Angling for white bass and crappie

Just minutes away from your Frisco vacation rental is Lake Lewisville, an angler's paradise. In the summer, look out for the gulls, a natural indicator of where the large schools of white bass are hiding out. Alternatively, cast your line in from any of the timber structures that dot the banks to hook in a largemouth bass, striped bass or white crappie. Catfishing is also good on the nearby lakes and there are some excellent fisheries close by. Come throughout the year to settle in to and afternoon of fishing while looking out for wading herons.
