Girls Night Out! Ideas in Collin County

including Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano

Looking for a great place to go with your girlfriends for an evening out? When you want to do something more than just sit across the table from one another or stare at a screen, here are some fun ideas--that'll burn calories, too!

Be aware that some of these places close as early as 7:00, so you may need to ask hubby to handle dinner at home.

Pinstack Bowl, Allen and Plano
While this is not the least expensive bowling alley in the area, it's ideal for a girls night out with its gourmet meals and VIP lanes.
635 N Central Expy, Allen

6205 Dallas Pkwy, Plano TX 75093

Ladies Night Out in Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano TX


Canyons Rock Climbing, Frisco
Emotional support can be a good thing within a group of friends, especially if one falls down--literally. Challenge yourselves and encourage one another to push beyond your comfort zone. Beginners and experienced welcome. And if one in your group just won't climb, she can try out a free yoga class.
7164 Technology Drive, Frisco TX 75034


Kartland Performance Indoor Raceway, Frisco
"Wait a minute, we're driving kids all day long. Why would we want to do this for 'fun'?" Because this drivin' ain't for soccer moms, that's why! We were going to leave this in the Guys Night Out catagory, and decided it wasn't fair to let the guys have all the fun. Release those endorphins in a wild ten-minute ride around the track! Monday nights ladies race for half price. Note that in addition to the race cost there is a license fee.
10550 John W. Elliott Drive, Frisco TX 75033


JW Entertainment Jumping World, Allen
Are you a competitive group? Then this may be the place for you. You can see who can ride on the mechanical bull the longest or make it across the Ninja Warrior Course. (Best to try before heading out to dinner.)
2031 W McDermott Dr, Allen TX 75013

Urban Air Trampoline Park, Frisco
Yes, you can drop in for open jump time, but what sounds better than burning up to 1,000 calories an hour? So, why not sign up for a fitness class together? Pay per class, or if you like to sneak off to jump on your own, you can buy a monthly unlimited pass.
10570 John W. Elliott Drive, Frisco TX 75033

3150 Hardin Blvd, McKinney, TX 75070

Packing Meals:

If you're like many people, you are looking for something unique to do on ladies night out and you'd like it to have significance.

Feed My Starving Children
Did you know that you and a few friends (or co-workers, your spouse, kids, etc) can sign up on Feed My Starving Children's website to pack meals for a two-hour time slot? These meals are then donated to FMSC partners around the world, where children are fed and lives are saved. FMSC's mission is to prevent some of the estimated 6,200 childhood deaths each day related to undernutrition. This is located just south of the Collin County line in Richardson close to the 75.
1680 N. Glenville Dr., Suite 300, Richardson, TX 75081


There are several opportunities to get creative together (and probably laugh at yourselves in the process):

Board & Brush, Plano
You'll start with sanding and distressing the wood for your sign, assemble the sign, and finally choose the paint and stain for your take-home sign. BYOB.
3115 W Parker Rd, Plano TX 75023

Color Me Mine, Frisco
Thursday is Ladies Night Out at Color Me Mine. You buy your piece, pay a special $5 studio fee, BYOB and snacks, and have a blast with your girlfriends!
3401 Preston Road, Frisco TX 75034

Painting with a Twist, McKinney
A paint-on-canvas with a BYOB (over 21) and snack. The "twist" just may be how your design comes out later in the evening!
3201 Hardin Boulevard, McKinney TX 75070

Walls of Clay, Historic McKinney
Glass fusing, clay impressions and paint your piece are all fun options! No reservations needed and what's better than strolling around downtown McKinney's square if you have to wait a few minutes?
211 N. Kentucky Street, McKinney TX 75069

Wild Brush Studio, Historic McKinney
Let your creative juices flow! No need to paint the same thing here that your friends are painting, because there are three art teachers/owners willing to bring out the artist in you. And, of course, you can BYOB (over 21). They are open evenings!
110 W. Virginia Street, McKinney TX 75069

Performing Arts:

Allen Public Library and Civic Auditorium, Allen
Free events held in a lovely auditorium include concerts, poetry, movies and book signings. Let's face it, the chance of getting your man to a poetry reading is probably not great, but it's a great night out for the gals!
300 N. Allen Drive, Allen TX 75013

McKinney Performing Arts Center, Historic McKinney
In addition to concerts, movies, and exhibits, what would make a better ladies night out than the show "Four Funny Females"? About once a month you'll catch this Dallas A-List group at the McKinney PAC. Be careful: we've heard they're pee-your-pants funny.
111 N. Tennessee Street, McKinney TX 75069


Dr. Pepper Star Centers
Remember those skates collecting dust in the closet? Well, strap them on with your girlfriends and see if you can still stand up. (Best not to try this in front of the kids anyway, or you'll be hearing about it forever.) On the website, click "Schedules" and "Schedules" again; look for "Public Skate." Days vary based on location.
2601 Avenue of the Stars, Frisco, TX 75034

6993 Stars Ave, McKinney, TX 75070
4020 W Plano Pkwy, Plano, TX 75093

ifly Dallas

Sky Diving:

iFly Dallas, Frisco
Some of you are probably hoping we didn't really just suggest dropping out of the sky. You're in luck, we didn't. You'll fly in a wind tunnel! (Feel safer?) Beginners and experts all welcome, as long you're healthy.
8380 State Hwy 121, Frisco TX 75034


Allen Community Theatre, Allen
Sometimes the guys just don't want to go to the theatre, but that's okay, because the girls almost always want to go! This is a great girls night out.
1206 E. Main Street, Allen TX 75002

Theatre Britain, Plano TX Beauty & the Beast
Art Centre Theatre, Plano
Enjoy a wonderful night of theatre at a price that will not break the bank. Infrequent "dark" nights so you're bound to find a great show all will enjoy!
1400 Summit Ave Suite E, Plano, TX 75074

Collin Theatre Center, Plano
Hilarious G-rated, dark, serious, and classic all play here in both the large auditorium and Black Box Theatre.
2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano TX 75074

Frisco Discovery Center, Frisco
When you just have to let your inner artsy-fartsy self out, it's probably best to go with the girls. The Black Box Theater features plays, classical music, and one-man shows. There's also an art gallery to browse, which is open until 5:00 most days--and free.
8004 Dallas Parkway, Frisco TX 75034

McKinney Repertory Theatre, McKinney
What could be a more "girls night out" than dinner in Historic McKinney (or shopping), amperformance by the community theatre, and some decaf or wine after to discuss the performance? After all, we have to use up some of our 20,000 words for the day!
111 N. Tennessee, McKinney TX 75069
