This is a fun area to eat and shop. There are wonderful stores to pop in and out of. Parking is difficult, We had to drive around a bit to find a spot.

There is always something happening on McKinney Ave. There are great shops and bars and restaurants to explore. The trolley is a great addition to allow visitors to get around. It is fun in the day and takes on its own persona in the evening. This is a great place to meet friends for cocktails.

McKinney Ave has tons of bars and restaurants, as well as shopping. There's a free trolley that runs the length of it and also has a stop at KW park.

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.
