If you visit McKinney, then a visit to the square is a must. Cute, unique shops, a variety of great restaurants, quaint charm. Wear good walking shoes, for you'll want to walk all around the square--and sometimes parking isn't readily available. The square is the gem of McKinney.

Came in for a visit and fell on live with this town. Cute shops and home stores, artwork. Lots of cafes and restaurants to eat at. We loved visiting and would have bought many trinkets if we didn't have to ship to ohio. Not much for kids but our enjoyed shopping

Downtown McKinney has wonderful restaurants and shops. Women's clothes and antiques as well as a toy store which carries wonderful chocolates. You can find a one of a kind gift or something for yourself.

The buildings themselves are my draw to Downtown. Many have been preserved with their unique features. The stores and restaurants change frequently but there are a few long time anchors. Never sure what you'll get, it is worth a nice afternoon's walk around.

Lots of gift and antique shops and over priced eating establishments. Just the kind of place that tourists love. Unless you are into late night drinking, not much for locals.

Downtown McKinney is THE place to spend weekends, mornings shopping, afternoons on the sidewalk cafes sipping wine or dining and listening to live music at so many places! The antiques, shops, amazing restaurants and just the atmosphere takes you back to a time long ago. Glad we live in McKinney and found this little pice of heaven!

McKinney did a fantastic job returning the downtown square and surrounding streets. This has in turn attracted numerous top-notch retailers and restaurants. Worth the visit!

This is the best "small downtown" we have ever visited! It has the feel of the original downtown, yet is modern in every way. Our favorite place to eat there is brunch at Spoons. We've eaten inside and even on a side patio. It's an old garage that has been transformed into a lovely restaurant. If you're in the area... More
