Whether venturing over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house or just up the road to Uncle Ned’s apartment this Thanksgiving, if you’re spending it in Frisco, we’re here to help you plan the perfect holiday!

First up, where to stay:

If aunt Lorraine’s sofa-bed leaves something to be desired, we recommend staying in one of Frisco’s award-winning hotels, two of which have attained AAA Four Diamond status

In the mood for a little luxury? Try the resort-style Westin Stonebriar, complete with award-winning Tom Fazio Championship golf course. 

If flap-jacks make you flip, book a room at Embassy Suites Hotel & Frisco Conference Center, known for its complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast. 

If Thanksgiving leftovers are the highlight of your holiday, choose Homewood Suites by Hilton, where every room has a fully-equipped kitchen—perfect for reheating grandpa’s famous stuffing.

Next up, Black Friday shopping:

You couldn't possibly come to Frisco for Thanksgiving without taking advantage of a few door-buster deals on Black Friday. Mega-stores like Sears, Macy’s and Dicks’s Sporting Goods are sure to offer great savings at Stonebriar Centre,  while favorites like Target and Best Buy will offer ridiculous savings only seen once a year at The Centre at Preston Ridge

And last, but never least (c’mon, this is Frisco, people!), sports and entertainment:

Before you feast on turkey and pumpkin pie, catch the Texas Tornado in action on Wednesday, Nov. 21 as they hit the ice to take on the Wichita Falls Wildcats at Dr Pepper Arena.

If you can pull yourself out of your turkey coma long enough, Frisco’s Christmas in the Square is a must-see, starting the day after Thanksgiving. The one-of-a-kind holiday extravaganza features the largest choreographed light show in Texas, as well as a real snow slide, which is no easy feat in North Texas.
