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
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
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
Cosmic Jump, Allen
What could be a better basis for a Giggle Fest than bouncing together on a trampoline? Yup, Cosmic Jump assures us that "it happens all the time,
groups of men and women come in to jump together." Hmmm. Let us know if you see other groups, okay?
1300 Central Expressway North, Allen
Jump Street, Allen
Similar to the other jump place in town, and add to it a wavy trampoline court, a foam pit, and a mechanical bull! Yup, that's right, all are open
to adults. You may want to stay out of the ball pit for obvious reasons, but why not see who can ride on the bull the longest? (Best to try before
heading out to dinner.)
2031 W McDermott Dr, Allen
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
There are several opportunities to get creative together (and probably laugh at yourselves in the process):
Art & Soul, Plano
From a piece of jewelry (under $5) to an $80 platter, this could be a great place to go for girlfriends with all budgets. And the owner offers
professional help, well, if you need it.
4621 W. Park Boulevard, Plano
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Various locations: Frisco
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
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
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!
5220 Village Creek Drive, Plano
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
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
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
