Spend a fun day in this downtown with family who lived there. Octoberfest was in full swing and we explored almost every shop there. McKinney is a great town with lots to offer!

McKinney Main Street and Square offer varied shops. Most of the people working greeted us with a warm hello. Even though we were just browsing and did not buy anything, they all thanked us for coming in. This is great way to spend some time visiting charming shops that are well-stocked and fun to visit.

Upscale Mexican food just North of the square next to French place. Delicious tacos! Loved the decor, very friendly, yummy appetizers, wonderful margaritas. Good prices and A/C was wonderful on a hot Texas summer day.

This has to be one of the best town squares in terms of quality shops and restaurants to choose from in Texas. Have had several delicious meals on the square and there are still lots of other highly rated restaurants to try. Lots of great shopping with some really unique items - many one of a kind. Love the Mom... More

Spent the afternoon here when visiting family. We had a lovely afternoon walking and shopping. Had an excellent lunch and bought a few gifts. Not much else to do so recommend if you're a shopper or want a relaxing walk.

I am a McKinney resident, but live 16 miles from the center of downtown. Main Street is a place we take all guests, and that we go to alone. It's filled with a variety of unique stores, many antique shops and good restaurants. We find something new to look at every visit and our guests always enjoy going down to... More

McKinney's Historic Downtown is truly charming. The Performing Arts Center is at the center of downtown with the streets forming a square around it. Each street around the square is loaded with boutiques, antique shops, and restaurants. Personally I think the shops tend to carry the same types of items in several of the shops. I'd like to see more... More

We love to spend time walking around the downtown area, mostly shopping and finding something good to eat. But we also love to drive around and look at the beautiful old homes. It is a lovely city.

We are impressed with the downtown area. There are many shops to check out and great restaurants. It's a quaint downtown area. Nice way to spend an afternoon/evening.
