On her blog she recounts inside tips for readers to fall in love with their hometown of Houston and recount stories from around Texas and the world with a distinctly, relatable Houstonian perspective. She came to Plano to explore the thriving destinations in town for staycations, business folk and Texas adventurers.

Traveling with the kids

Colleen Pence is the editor and owner of, which focuses on family events and activities, food, and travel, with an emphasis on all of the free fun families can have in the Alamo City.

Traveling with kids requires a bit of balance to be sure everyone in the family stays happy. Planning attention-capturing things for the kids to do and see, while also satisfying parents’ desire for good food and drinks, a little sightseeing, and the occasional bit of down time can be tough, but not impossible, to accomplish.

My family and I resolved all those challenges and more with a recent weekend trip to Plano, Texas. There is a wide variety of family-friendly, fun things to do in Plano, Texas (more than we could fit into one weekend, as we learned!).
