Plano is just 20 minutes north of Dallas and is super easy to navigate and get around. The city has a fantastic variety of things to do with family and friends, from excellent shopping and dining to the most colorful attraction in North Texas, the Crayola Experience at The Shops at Willow Bend, where visitors can explore the 60,000 square feet of hands-on activities that Parents Magazine calls one of the “Top 10 Trips to Take Before Your Kid Turns 10.”
