A beautiful park that sits on the Ten Mile river, Walter Byron offers a playground, fishing, sand volleyball court, horseshoe pit, picnic tables and benches, charcoal cooking grills and a large expanse of grass to run and play on. Dogs are welcome and the park can be rented out for special events.

Buy[edit]

An asian-focused boutique that's been in operation in Frisco for 10+ years that sells jewelry, high-end fashion clothing, home decor, jewelry, and accessories. Due to its array of high quality products and its central location in the middle of town, The Flying Crane is an extremely popular shop with tourists and locals alike.

Eat[edit]

Much better than ski lodge breakfasts and still close to all of the mountains. This is a Frisco local favorite for the take-away and dining experience. Many stop in for a fresh loaf of bread to go with dinner and some just pop in for dessert.

A Summit County tradition since the 1940's, the Blue Spruce sits at the intersection of Madison and Main Street. It was voted Best Restaurant in Summit County in 2010. The fare is more expensive than many Frisco restaurants (dishes often cost upward of $30), but is also much more upscale; example dishes served at The Blue Spruce include Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes, Smoked Trout, Maple Leaf Duck, and Mt. Royal New York Steak.

Tuscato has been one of Frisco's most popular restaurants since 1998. They offer classic Italian food based on old family recipes and offer nightly dinner specials that often feature fresh fish and seasonal produce. The restaurant also offers a very active bar with a highly-attended happy hour! Tuscato has been voted best Italian Restaurant in Summit County 6 times since 2003.
