Things to Do

You might already know about Allen’s three unique shopping destinations or the fact that we have more than 250 restaurants to choose from and 10 hotels from nationally respected brands, but did you know about all the extras we offer? Getting active in Allen ranges from the extreme to the effortless and everything in between. If experiencing a bit of art and culture is more your style we have plenty of that, too. We offer great concerts and events as well as just about every spectator sport you can imagine. Of course, Allen is known for its outdoors - 1,196 acres of parkland, more than 70 miles of hike-and-bike trails, 60 parks and seven recreation facilities, including a municipal golf course, natatorium and one of the state's largest outdoor skate parks.
