Hip Spot to Hang

This is the place to be seen. A lot of bars and restaurant. Good place to bar hop, you can even ride the free trolley between spots.

Mckinney has a great trolley that takes you up and down it for free. You and hop on and off at your leisure getting to try out all the great venues along the way. Fun place to hang with a group of friends or just as a couple.

From all the fancy eatries to things to do and see, most are located in this ave. There is also a free trolly that goes through this ave to make it much better of an experience since parking sometimes is hectic to find.

Enjoy the sites and be sure and ride the trolley. McKinney Avenue is like a small city in itself. Restaurants line the street and shops that carry the unusual to the sublime. There is something for everyone if you just look around you Take time to enjoy the scenes and the food for sure! You gotta ride the trolley!

Take the tram and explore the stores and restaurants with your companion .There is a nice selection including Hook, Line and Sinker my personal favorite on the street and other gems you can find on the side streets.. This is a great area- just go be like Lewis and Clark and explore- you will be glad you did.

The true pull to the uptown area is not on McKinney but on a lot of the side streets. Great bars galore downtown. Check out parliament for old school, ginger man for beers or a little further down for great food at urban taco or brunch at bread winners. The street itself is pointless.

This strip has a nice selection of bars and restaurants to choose from if you're looking for night life. I've visited Dallas several times over the past couple years and we always end up on this street at least one night out of the visit. I definitely recommend this to others who visit Dallas.

McKinney Ave is one of the main stretches in Dallas. It has a lot of restaurants, bars, and clubs. The bars are really fun. They are all across from each other on the Strip. Some have live music, others are just bars, there is even a bar with a mechanical bull called the Trophy room. They have a lot of... More
