We Love Plano in December
Places to Go and Things to do in Plano In December
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Plano is certainly a fabulous place to spend this magical time of year.
At Prestige ER we chose Plano as our home base partly because of the great lifestyle the city offers, and we are not the only ones who think so, CNN Money Magazine designated the city as the best place to live in the Western United States in 2005, 2006 and 2011, and Forbes selected Plano as the safest city in America two years in a row.
In December the city seems to come alive with all the street decorations, the wonderful window displays of the shops, and seasonal music in the air. December is also a great month to go explore the many wonders of the city. We’re taking you on a journey to discover the many things to do in Plano in December. Remember that at Plano ER, we offer you the best emergency care and while others are closed during the holiday, #WeStayOpen.
Dark Hour Haunted House
Our first stop on the Things to do In Plano in December is the Dark Hour Haunted House. If you thought haunted houses were only for Halloween, you are wrong, the Dark Hour Haunted House offers year-round amusement for those who are brave enough to enter it, and this Holiday Season, they have come up a terrifying tale of toys coming to life and teaming up with evil elves who wage war against Krampus and his elves. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 15th.
Interurban Railway Museum
The history professor in you will love to visit Plano in December! Did you know that Plano had electric rails back in 1908? If you want to take a tour through Car 360, you just need to hop on down to the Interurban Railway Museum housed in the original building Texas Electric Railway substation in Plano. This interactive museum is a little gem, as it not only teaches us about the history of train transportation in Texas it also offers exhibits of the history of Plano.
Downtown Plano Arts District
The historic district of the city is in our opinion one of the most beautiful parts of the city. We are not the only ones that admire this unique eclectic downtown as it was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Downtown Plano Arts District is lined with antique shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, handmade jewelry shops, urban dining, theaters, art galleries, and outdoor cultural events like concerts.

Let’s Go Shopping!
The holiday season is a wonderful excuse to go shopping in the more than 70 shopping centers within the city limits. Here are some great places to visit if you’re going shopping in Plano in December:
- Legacy West, more than a shopping and entertainment center Legacy West is a mini city, with more than 415,000 square feet of open-air retail and restaurant space, corporate buildings, luxury hotel, and apartment high-rises.
- Lakeside Market, is an upscale shopping and entertainment experience, featuring stunning furniture stores, gourmet dining, spas, and more, it is easy to spend endless hours here.
- The Shops at Legacy is another one of our favorites, this urban development, offers unique shops, exclusive boutiques, cozy cafes, and some of the finest restaurants in the area.
- Dallas Vintage Shop While the shopping centers offer more traditional shopping options, sometimes we are in need of a special gift for that one person in our lives who seems to march to the beat of their own drums, and we found the perfect spot, the Dallas Vintage Shop.This megastore is a combination of a vintage clothing store and a theater prop shop. You can find period costumes from the 1900’s to the present time, and the list of accessories is infinite.
While shopping is a delight to some, it can be very stressful this time of the year. PrestigeER.org recommends that you not skip your meals, stay hydrated, wash your hands frequently and visit us if your health significantly takes a turn for the worse. #WeStayOpen when other ERs are closed!
