Things to Do Near Me: Find Local Events

We love sharing our favorite events for local families who are looking for Plano events nearby. Look no further than our Dallas and Plano Events near me (and you) for the top things to do each month.

Our Calendar of things to do nearby around Plano, Frisco, Dallas, and the DFW area. If you’re looking for ideas for things to do this weekend, we have those too.

Aside from Plano Texas events this month, there are over 20 new and old landmarks and hidden gems around Plano, that you can check out!

Even if these events don’t make it on your calendar this month, why not visit some of our great parks and trails and hike, or take a Scavenger Hunt in Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve or the ever-popular Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, the Heritage Farmstead Museum or some of the great Plano attractions in Downtown Plano Arts District, like the Texas Electric Railway and Interurban Railway Museum in Plano, TX.

For younger kids, we love the Crayola Experience Plano and for older kids on good weather days, we recommend the Go Ape Treetop Adventure!

Plano Events

We update these events happening this month and scour the Internet looking for the best and most fun things to do nearby for families. For more information on any event, please contact the event organizer directly. Plano Moms does not host any of these events, but we do share them when we find them.

Note: Seasonal Event listings are updated about a month before the season.

Go on a Scavenger Hunt Adventure around Plano

Thanks to Plano Moms for helping me knock two things off my son’s personal summer bucket list … walking trails and doing a scavenger hunt with Mom!

They have pre-made scavenger hunts for Oak Point Park, Arbor Hills, and Russell Creek.
