The Shops at Legacy Plano Texas


The Shops at Legacy in Plano, Texas has become one of the premier areas in north Plano for dining, shopping, entertainment, and urban living. Gina and I enjoy Sambuca 360, Nicola’s, Jasper’s, Taco Diner, and Seasons 52.

The holiday lights are spectacular. After enjoying a nice meal, we often stroll along Bishop enjoying the lights and stopping in for an after-dinner Irish Coffee or a nice glass of wine at one of the many local stores that line the street.

Watters Creek in Allen Texas

It’s been fun to watch urban living migrate to the suburbs. Over the past five years, we’ve seen a number of developments pop-up that offer urban-style living in suburban cities surrounding Dallas.

Watters Creek, located in the southwest corner of US 75 and Bethany Road, is one of the latest urban-style developments in Collin County.

The Watters Creek website reads:

With its vertically dense design, this 52-acre project incorporates a complete mix of uses including a large creekside village green, interactive public art, a variety of retail options, restaurants featuring al fresco dining and water views, and office space and residential lofts.

Gina and I really like the area with its upscale eateries, wine bars, upper-end retail, and Market Street. We stopped into Grimaldi’s Pizzeria the other evening for a couple of Blue Moon’s and a pizza after spending an afternoon listing a property in Allen. Other good places to eat include The Cheesecake Factory, P F Changs, and The Village Burger Bar. 

Currently the area is decorated for the Holidays with extensive lighting and seasonal activities.
