Local Lifestyle


A quiet, blossoming suburb beloved for its convenience and incredible amenities, Plano is a haven for people from all walks of life, whether you’re a family looking to plant roots in a highly acclaimed school zone, young professional seeking the bounties of the city’s thriving economy or retiree with a desire for soaking up in warm sunshine out in open green spaces. Small town tranquility mixes with big-city sophistication, offering residents the best of both worlds with trendy entertainment, on-trend shopping, and easy access to major freeways and the airport.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping


While Plano’s Legacy West has become the icon of shopping with a slew of high-end stores, luxury brands, and delightful restaurants, the heart of this old farming town remains in Historic Downtown Plano, where shoppers wade through infinite options for local businesses to purchase quality items, and foodies satiate their appetites with a visit to restaurants like Jorge’s Cafe Vienna or Robata and Sushi Ebusu.

At Sweet Home Bath & Body, skincare aficionados can shop sustainably sourced body products to help their skin maintain its healthy glow, while La Foofaraw stocks up on all the aesthetic home decor, interior design, and gift items. Go in for all types of wine and chef-driven menus of seasonal cuisine made with local ingredients at the dazzling Sixty Vines Restaurant. Be sure to pick out signature handbags at Louis Vuitton in Legacy West or go for celestial fragrances at Gucci, and make a stop at Toulouse for the heartiest serving of bouillabaisse, crème Brulee and a refreshing mimosa before leaving.

Things to Do

Strewn with a number of recreation centers, museums, and well-maintained parks, there’s never a shortage of things to do in Plano. Walk or bike along the trails at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, a 200-acre park teeming with wildlife, picnic pavilions, and a scenic landscape with divine atmosphere, Arbor Hills is more than a perfect backdrop for memorable family photos!

The Heritage Farmstead Museum takes guests back to the 19th century with fascinating tidbits like the one-room schoolhouse and a carriage garage plus a blacksmith shed. A feel of the local color can be had at Plano Artfest, an event brimming with artistic inclusiveness and cultural sophistication held annually downtown. The holiday season is incomplete without grand tree lightings and Plano has just the perfect event to fulfill this with Lights at Legacy. And in autumn, crowds flock to Oak Point Park to mark one of the city’s biggest celebrations—the Plano Balloon Festival where colorful hot air balloons lift families into the sky and live music performances thrill the air.
