“Great little old town center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We have now been about 4 times to the old center of McKinney. What a delight, when on holiday.
At lunch time try The Pub, great restaurants at night , a wine bar on the corner and if you are really daring stop at the corner sweet shop and try the fudge. I went mad about the maple walnut fudge. As an American who lives in South Africa, it is a treat to be at home, back in old style Texas, where when they say you all come back they mean it.

“The best of Small Town Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

What a great find! So much shopping opportunity, so little time. Especially loved the Country Home deco store and the fabulous quilting store. I can't wait to get back.

“Good food and accommodations in small Texas town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

There are several good restaurants here 'on the Square', including Rick's Chophouse at the Grand Hotel, and Square Burger to name a few. In fall the Octoberfest celebration is fun, as well as Dickens of a Christmas the weekend following Thanksgiving. This is a nice place to get away from Dallas for a little bit. Lots of people come here to shop for antiques. The old courthouse now functions as a performing arts center where one can see comedians or musical acts; this is a good place to experience small town Texas.

“Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We live in McKinney and still chose downtown McKinney for our stay cation. Stayed at the Grand Hotel and eat on the square. Quaint yet upscale. All it needs is a small market open (7/11) for incidentals.
