I can’t remember the last time my husband and I had a date night without the kids. If you’re in the same boat as us, then this post is for you. Frisco is a great place to plan an adult, parents' or friends' night out. We spent 24 hours in Frisco without the kids and these were some of our favorite spots.
'Axe' me what one of my favorite adult things to do in Frisco? It’s Stumpy’s Hatchet House! Located in World Cup Plaza, just west of Toyota Stadium, Stumpy’s offers axe throwing for small and large groups, ages 18 and up. It’s great for the competitive couple or if you just like to learn a new skill. They are currently a BYOB facility, so pack a cooler and have an 'axellent' time!
Insider tip: don’t forget to wear closed-toe shoes! They don’t allow sandals or flip flops. Not to worry if you do show up in either, though, because you can buy shoes there.
Countdown 2 Escape
If you are looking to “escape the ordinary,” look no further because Countdown 2 Escape has got you covered. Located in the Rail District, Countdown 2 Escape has designed an environment that helps you unplug, connect and engage with your partner or the group who has joined you for the experience.
Guests are sent on an adventure in a themed puzzle room with only 60 minutes to complete the mission. There are three different adventures to choose from, each with their own difficulty levels. Your team will navigate a series of clues, puzzles and locks in an effort to complete the objective. As part of the challenge, Countdown 2 Escape assigns you your own personal Game Master who is trained to ensure you have a fun and memorable time.
If you and your partner enjoy playing video games, Nerdvana is your place. Located in Frisco Square, Nerdvana Frisco is a restaurant and bar focused on contemporary American dining, craft beer and video games. Nerdvana offers delicious food and drinks with a side of game play. You can choose from a variety of game systems in a video game booth or traditional board games at the table. A night out should be all about connecting with your partner and Nerdvana gives you that opportunity.
After a fun and long night out, you’re going to want a great place for breakfast. Norma’s Café is like dining at home with your mom’s cooking (if your mom is an amazing cook).
Norma’s Café offers home cooking and huge portions. From eNORMAus breakfasts to their Blue Plate Specials, every Texas-size dish at Norma’s Cafe is made with the highest quality ingredients and will have you coming back for more.
Extending date-night with a hotel stay is a great way to enjoy your evening to the fullest. At the Hyatt Regency Frisco, you can enjoy the hotel's modern and luxiours accommodations, head next door to nearly 200 shops and restaurants at Stonebriar Centre mall, or take a short drive from the hotel to more entertainment, nightlife and dining.
Their pool is the ideal place to kick back and relax, and when you’re ready to have a drink or some food, the hotel offers four on-site dining outlets, including a late-hour restaurant and a market featuring coffee, tea and snacks.
