You may think this is nuts! Why would we encourage you to head in the opposite direction? After all, it's our job and our PLEASURE to tell you where to eat and what to do while visiting America's Friendliest College Town for the ultimate, authentic experience. (FYI, cheese fries Toyota Texas Music Revolutionare always a part of this equation.) However, we have exceptional hospitality partners across state lines, with whom we learn from, share ideas with and, together, play an essential role in promoting the largest industry in the nation and just-down-the-road experiences!

Are you thinking, "What's the catch?"  Well, while we are busy motivating our audiences to get of out town, Visit Plano is spreading the love about Stillwater's red dirt music festival,  Bob Childers' Gypsy Cafe, to bring them back. The Gypsy Cafe honors the roots of Red Dirt music in Oklahoma with over 60 singer/songwriters set to take the stage across three venues in Stillwater on April 26th.  We bet you guessed it - a pair of tickets is up for grabs along with a one-night hotel stay in Stillwater as well! Be sure to check out our live music events calendar - it is chock full of live gigs from string quartets and Bob Childers' Gypsy Cafesymphonies to cover bands and rock n' roll.
