Foodie Favorite: Depot CafeWe all like to indulge once in awhile, and there’s no better place than somewhere that smells like home and Frisco’s Depot Cafe will have nostalgia rushing back. “It takes me back to my childhood and my grandmother taking me to small, family-owned establishments where the food was plenty, the prices were low and the mood is pure community,” Amy said. With a great selection of dishes and daily specials that come with a piece of homemade cake, this is one treasure that can’t be missed.
Artistic Addiction: North Texas Make a Wish FoundationCharity events are a great place to find priceless artwork.

Bargain Hunter: McKinney Trade DaysFlea markets are a gold mine for precious finds and this local favorite in Collin County is no exception. Held on the weekend before every third Monday of the month, McKinney trade days is home to more than 450 vendors, selling a mix of antiques, clothing and other collectibles. “I just need to stay away from the aisle with the puppies, because I want to take them all home with me!” Amy said.
I Heart Dallas: Reunion TowerA true Dallas landmark, the Reunion Tower has become a signature for the city’s skyline. “When I’m driving or flying back into town and see Reunion Tower, I know I’m home,” Amy remarked. Home to an observation deck that overlooks downtown and a rotating restaurant lounge owned by Wolfgang Puck, it’s a must-visit for suburbians exploring the city.
On the Move: The Star in FriscoThe Cowboys’ new training facility in Frisco has integrated itself into the Collin County community.
