Plano, Texas: More Than a Meeting

Plano, Texas, is truly the land of plenty. Plano’s location just north of Dallas offers easy access to the area’s professional sports, performing arts, museums and the world famous Southfork Ranch. But Plano is also a destination in its own right, with over 55 hotels, more than 1000 restaurants, world class shopping, a lively arts and nightlife scene, and abundant natural beauty.

Plano is one of the best places to live in the United States, according to CNN Money Magazine; America’s safest city, according to a survey by Forbes; and arguably one of the best places to visit and do business. 

Conveniently located near the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Plano is within a 30-minute drive to most major attractions, sporting, adventure and entertainment venues throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Plano offers everything corporate and business travelers are looking for, including fine dining, exceptional shopping, nearby sports venues, top-notch public golf courses, inviting day spas, a variety of interesting and entertaining attractions, and much more.

Modern venues of every size, description and budget are located throughout the city. Whether it’s a conference, trade show or board meeting, there is over 450,000 square feet of meetings space, with many facilities that offer free parking and free wireless connectivity.

Plano has long been a walkable destination thanks to the Shops at Legacy and its anchor meetings hotel, the Dallas/Plano Marriott at Legacy Town Center, which is within walking distance to over 100 restaurants and various shops.

Now, even more options are available in Plano as Legacy West sits just across the highway from The Shops at Legacy. This “city within a city” is the largest mixed use destination in North Texas and is a great place to meet, play, shop, dine, and stay. The 255-acre development boasts plenty of open-air high-end retail, restaurants, and an anchor meetings hotel, Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West. 

Across from the Hilton Dallas/Plano Granite Park hotel sits a new 30,000 square foot restaurant park called The Boardwalk where attendees can enjoy eateries featuring a French tea room, gourmet biscuits, and even a local brewery and restaurant.
