Every year, people around the world ask the same question: What do we do with dad for Father’s Day? Luckily, here in Frisco, we have you covered — and we’re talking more than a t-shirt or gift card! If you want to give dad something amazing this year, we have a handful of slam-dunk ideas to make Father’s Day in Frisco extra special.

Visit Cowboys Central

Even if you’re not a fan of America’s Team, a visit to the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys at The Star is a must-visit for any sports fan. Take dad on the ultimate football journey with a VIP Guided Tour that includes a stop at Ford Center, a 510,00 square-foot facility that hosts marquee sports events year round — be sure to call The Star for availability of guided tours. See where the Cowboys brass makes big decisions on draft day at the state-of-the-art War Room and then dig deep into Cowboys lore on the Nike Star Walk. For a great photo with dad, be sure to visit the Grand Atrium and its Italian marble floors, dancing LED displays, and more. After a tour, stick around for shopping or a great meal. There’s so much to explore at The Star.

Take Dad Out to the Ballgame

Along with America’s Team, Frisco is also a great spot to enjoy America’s favorite pastime. The Frisco RoughRiders play home games right in Frisco at Riders Field. The Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers even play on Father’s Day this year when the RoughRiders wrap up a six-game series against Midland RockHounds. And this is no ordinary ballpark. Afterall, where else can you float down a world-famous Lazy River? It’s not every day you can stay cool in a pool or float on a tub, eat snacks, enjoy drinks, and watch baseball all at the same time. Can’t make the game on Father’s Day? Check out the schedule and plan your next baseball day in Frisco at your convenience.

Pedal Around Frisco

One of the best ways to enjoy Frisco is on two wheels. It’s a great way to enjoy the great outdoors while appreciating nature. In Frisco, we have over 70 miles of bike trails, giving casual bikers a chance to enjoy the view at a leisurely pace along with more intense trails for those looking for a real challenge. 

For a trail that has it all, try Caddo Trail at Stewart Creek. At 1.1 miles, it’s not overly challenging, it’s lined with trees for shade, and there’s art along the trail. There’s even a bike lane from Caddo Trail to 5th Street Patio Café if you’ve worked up an appetite or want to cool down and enjoy a tasty coffee beverage with dad.

Spend the Day on the Fairways

If your dad is like a lot of dads, he loves golf! Luckily for you, golf also loves Frisco. PGA of America is moving its headquarters to Frisco this year. It means even more golf in The City That Plays, including two 18-hole world class courses, a 10-hole short course, a 30-acre practice facility, and the all new Omni PGA Frisco Resort all coming in 2023. It will be a must-visit for any golf enthusiast.

There’s still plenty of golf to be played for Father’s Day this year, including a round on the Fazio Course, designed by the legendary Tom Fazio. Find this course at The Westin Stonebriar Golf Resort & Spa.

Play in the Park

It can be tricky to find an activity that everyone in the family will love. Hanging out in a park is always a winning idea for free Frisco fun. They’re perfect for taking a walk, snapping a photo for Instagram, going fishing, cooling off in a swimming hole, or burning off some energy on a playground. For a stroll, scenic spot for family photos, and more, stop by Central Park. It’s loved by residents and is a must-see for visitors. Admire the pond, running brook, and walking trails. It’s also where you’ll find Cattle Drive, an outdoors public art installation with life-sized bronze sculptures of longhorn steers and cowboys on horseback depicting life on the Shawnee Trail.

Visit Arizona, New Mexico,  and Colorado Without Leaving Frisco

Trains are a mode of transportation that captivate minds both young and old. TrainTopia takes you on a tour of the American Southwest, with a 2,500 sq. ft. layout that showcases destinations from Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas all at 1:24 scale. We have six reasons to check out TrainTopia if you want to learn more. From friendly staff to a scavenger hunt for visitors of all ages, a trip to TrainTopia tracks as a great idea for Father’s Day in Frisco.

Luckily, Frisco’s culinary scene is full of restaurants, diners, and cafés for all tastes. From BBQ and sushi to baked goods and pizza, we have it all.
