Plano vacation rentals

Laze and lounge in spacious Plano

Out on the fringes of northern Dallas, where space is not a premium, Plano has been allowed to spread its wings. The result is a green and leafy city, where fountains babble in the parks and shimmering business high-rises loom over open plazas. Clean and manicured, this is a well-to-do enclave that's long attracted business travelers and families with its wealth of recreational spaces and eclectic line up of Plano vacation rentals. You'll also love being within striking distance of the Lewisville and Lavon lakes, where sailing and summertime walking abound.

It's all about the park life in Plano

Plano has countless parks. Vacationers can spend long days lazing beneath lurching oak trees listening to the sound of babbling fountains, or hiking through forests to lookout points and picnic spots above the town. Others will want to break away to sail and camp on the edge of nearby lakes. If you'd prefer something less outdoorsy, then Plano's seemingly endless shopping malls have you covered, while history lovers can head to case out old railroads or learn about the founding of the city in its historic district.

Discover Plano's historic heart

If you really want to feel the characterful side of this one, then there's nowhere better to search for those Plano vacation rentals than in the Historic Downtown. This designated arts district has quaint American diners, 1950s-style cafés, boutique shops, and local craft stores. Once you're done there, it's high time to hit the parks. The best of these is the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, where pavilions host regular bands and weddings in the summer, there are playgrounds and picnic spots, and a chance to see rare herons and woodpeckers between the boughs.

Consider a fall visit to Plano

Plano's wealth of pretty parks and inviting nature preserves means that you're going to need plenty of dry weather and sun to really make the most of life here. For that, it's actually better to dodge the high summer in Texas, when temperatures can be unbearably hot. Instead, consider looking for your Plano vacation rentals in the fall, when the trees glow in beautiful fall colors, and the dry days of October and November offers great walking conditions.

The Texan flatlands and lakes in Plano

Plano is sat on the flat lands that roll out from the DFW Metro area to the northern reaches of Texas. It's peppered with countless parks of its own, like the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, where shady trails mingle with the oak groves and rare birds like woodpeckers can be spotted from the lookouts. To the east and the west of the town are 2 of the main outdoorsy attractions. These come in the form of Lake Lewisville and Lake Lavon, which have camping, boating, bass fishing, and pebble beaches aplenty.
