When guests arrive to your McKinney, TX home, they’ll be ready to tour the community and learn more about what Money Magazine has deemed one of the best places to live in America! Whether they are in need of a delicious meal or some retail therapy, McKinney has more than enough to offer to satisfy everybody. As you show your friends the best of McKinney, make sure to mention its unique history that has shaped the city ever since it was first established in 1848. McKinney is home to one of the state’s largest historic districts and despite being a fast-growing city (its population topped 141,000 last month!), it still has retained a small-town feel.

The best place to start is downtown McKinney. Visitors will enjoy more than 100 unique shops and more than a dozen different restaurants. There is an assortment of specialty shops, art galleries, furniture stores, exquisite antique collections, home décor and apparel boutiques. Normal business hours for most of these shops are Monday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm.

A few of our top dining choices would be Patina Green Home & Market (shop AND eat in the same place!), Rick’s Chophouse and the Sauce on the Square. It is easy to find a one-of-a-kind place to eat in McKinney – many are family-owned-and-operated, which is rare these days! Check out this full list of McKinney restaurants before you spend too long driving around trying to find something that will suit everyone.

In addition to the shopping and dining, the McKinney Convention and Visitors Bureau (MCVB) offer a variety of tours for visitors, from perimeter tours to historic homes tours. The MCVB is always happy to help put together the perfect itinerary for you and your guests if you give them a call: 888-649-8499.

One other way to gather ideas for guests is to visit the McKinney, TX Pinterest page! There you’ll find pictures of nature trails, local spots, foods and events. Your friends may just end up looking for their own McKinney, TX home while they’re in town!
