Do you think holiday entertaining must involve a trip over the river and through the woods – or at least a car ride across town? It doesn’t have to! The holiday fun stays in the neighborhood, when you live in a master-planned community, such as the award-winning Craig Ranch in McKinney. You and your holiday guests don’t need to plan a 30-minute caravan to keep things lively.
For starters, you can relax. Your guests can join you for a seasonal massage, pedicure and facial at the Cooper Spa at Craig Ranch. Then you can sign up for any of the fantastic holiday fitness programs at the Cooper Fitness Center, Craig Ranch’s state-of-the-art wellness facility. Members receive one free guest pass (and can purchase additional ones), so you and your holiday guests can keep up with your workouts while you celebrate.
Or both the adults and the kids can drop in for public skating at the Dr Pepper Star Center Ice Arena, at 6993 Stars Ave. What’s the holiday without a spin around the rink? You can even win 4 free skating passes this month – find out how here.
Tired of coordinating meals? Grab a quick breakfast, lunch or pick-me-up smoothie at Tenley’s Café at the Cooper Fitness Center; it’s full of healthy food choices. Members of the TPC Craig Ranch golf club – the centerpiece of the community – can enjoy a casual meal at The Legend’s Grill, with light fare, a full-service bar and panoramic views of the Audubon-accredited course.
Before your guests pack up and head home, host a farewell holiday meal at the TPC Craig Ranch club’s formal dining option, The Portobello Room. The event will practically plan itself; less work and more fun for you and everyone!
