A Girls’ Weekend In Plano

Can’t wait to gather up your besties for a weekend getaway?!? Love the fam, but enough is enough. Plano has the perfect set up for a relaxing weekend stay. Here are some suggestions for convenient locations to stay, dine and shop. (More time to max out the girl talk!)

Where to Stay

We have a couple of favorite spots to recommend, but keep in mind that Plano offers more than 7,000 hotel rooms with “best in class” service awards, so you have plenty of lodging options to choose from that won’t break the bank! Check out a full list of hotels here.

Renaissance at Plano Legacy West

If you’re thinking of bumping your getaway up a notch, consider the Renaissance at Plano Legacy West. Centrally located off the Dallas North Tollway on Legacy Drive, this luxury hotel is the anchor for the $3 billion Legacy West development and offers 304-rooms across 15 stories!

The Renaissance at Plano Legacy West is in the heart of all the best shopping in Plano. From lounging at the rooftop pool to being walking distance to top-notch shops—this is luxury living.

Marriott at Legacy Town Center

We are also big fans of the 4-star Marriott at Legacy Town Center. The hotel is just steps away from The Shops at Legacy, which offers high-end shopping and dining options, making this a prime location for a weekend getaway or a memorable shopping staycation experience. You’ll enjoy upscale accommodations plus the outdoor pool!

Check out these Dining ideas 

Plano is making a name for itself as a foodie destination, whether you’re the adventurous type, a vegetarian, or just in the mood for a good old-fashioned burger. For beef that’s arguably the GOAT (greatest of all time), check out Rodeo Goat, or sit down for a staggering 21-course feast at Shumi Omakase!

Run, don’t walk to Legacy Food Hall, the ultimate food court filled with over 15 different cuisine and dining options. Our faves include Roots Chicken Shak, Brisket Love and Forno Nero. Don’t forget to save room for dessert at Haute Sweets or a popsicle at Berrynaked.

Looking for lunch in paradise? Take a shopping break at Tommy Bahama in Legacy West, one of only two locations in the entire state! Enjoy Macadamia Nut Crusted Snapper while sipping on a Grapefruit Basil martini, all in a tropical oasis.

New to The Shops at Willow Bend is The District, a collection of buzz-worthy restaurants like Knife by celebrity chef John Tesar, Terra Mediterranean and Mexican Bar Co.

The Boardwalk at Granite Park is a 30,000 square foot restaurant pavilion in Granite Park. Check out two of our favorites, the Biscuit Bar, a delicious and unique take on sandwiches, and Union Bear Brewing Co., a locally owned and operated brewery. The area has multiple restaurants with beautiful patios, outside games like Connect Four and Corn Hole and it’s a great place to stroll, dine, and unwind.
