Welcome to the fastest growing city in the United States over the last decade! Frisco started out as a small railroad town and even takes its name (and logo) from the St. Louis–San Francisco Railway, which was known as the Frisco Line. Frisco celebrates its railroad history while also moving into the future. From shopping to sports, art and history, there are a variety of experiences you can enjoy when visiting Frisco. Featuring five professional sports teams and state-of-the-art sporting venues, Frisco is home to FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium, the Dallas Stars and Texas Legends at Dr Pepper Arena, Frisco RoughRiders at the Dr Pepper Ballpark and the Dallas Cowboys at The Star. Love to shop and dine? Frisco features more than 9 million square feet of retail and over 300 restaurants to choose from. When it comes to arts and culture, Frisco offers a growing public art trail, as well as the Texas Sculpture Garden, and a growing museum district that includes the Museum of the American Railroad, the Sci-Tech Children’s Museum, the National Videogame Museum, the Frisco Heritage Museum and, coming soon, the National Soccer Hall of Fame.The spring meeting will be held at the Embassy Suites Frisco Hotel & Conference Center, which is located next to the retail core of Frisco and some of our sports venues. The hotel is within walking distance of the Stonebriar Centre Mall to the east and the Texas Sculpture Garden to the west. And even closer, we will be stepping across the street to attend a RoughRiders baseball game Thursday night. But the fun starts on Wednesday with indoor skydiving and go-kart racing. In addition, we can suggest many fun activities for your family members to enjoy in Frisco while you are at the conference.
The Local Arrangements Committee (LAC) is excited to show you what’s new in Frisco and what’s still on the way. Take a tour of the developments taking shape in the $5 Billion Mile including The Star, which features the new Dallas Cowboys Headquarters and Practice Stadium. This tour and a technical session presentation will explain how the City is working to meet the transportation needs of our explosive growth. Another tour will demonstrate our traffic management center and our Safety Town for students of all ages. Learn how we are adding new innovations in transportation technology. You can even test drive a new car that communicates with our traffic signals in real time. Explore all of your options on the menu to the right.
