Whether it is Cadillac Pizza on Friday night or Saturday morning breakfast at Spoons, you will really enjoy the small town atmosphere of Downtown McKinney. On Friday night we had drinks and pizza at Cadillac Pizza before visiting the Improve Comedy club to finish the evening. We stayed in a local B&B and then had an excellent breakfast at Spoons Dinner before shopping multiple stores including an afternoon snack at "Mom and Pops" old fashioned candy store. We then finished our trip with drinks and seafood at Bayou Jacks Cajun Grill on Saturday night.

Hadn't been to McKinney in at least a decade and was very pleasantly surprised at the great downtown area. Great places to eat, shop, and see art. Walls of Clay is a great space for painting ceramics, doing fused glass or painting glass objects such as wine glasses.

Too many shops to go through each one (but I tried in the 95 degree temperature). So many choices of food & drinks you can’t do it all in a day. If you’re looking for a gift or something cute for yourself or your guy needs a new T-shirt from his college days you can find them here.

I've been to McKinney quite a few times over the years. My most recent visit was during the "Covid time" so I was curious and a bit concerned over how safe it would be. It was a great visit! The stores that were open (several have not re-opened yet or have closed down) were very clean, had signs up about requiring masks and followed social distancing guidelines. My friends are I were very pleased and felt very comfortable in all the stores we visited. Most importantly, get out there and shop local - everyone was so happy to have customers come thru their doors and the selection of merchandise was great. I will definitely go back sooner rather than later.

McKinney is a fast growing suburban area north of Dallas. It is lovely to walk around and is filled with wonderful shops, restaurants and a park. I wish every old town would develop their downtown area even half as nicely as McKinney has done. If you are in the area, this is truly a hidden gem!

They’ve done a great job decorating the square and offering options for relaxing during the holidays.... they have a huge real tree that compares to the one in NY. Big carousel, dessert food truck, kids playground and safe social distance individually prepared crafts, lots of place to eat and 3 great wine and food with outdoor seating and great music and tons of large decorations.... tons of picture opportunities and grab and walk food and drink options but there are also tons of outdoor seating bench options. I personally enjoy a peaceful walk with family around the historic square listening to sounds of Christmas and maybe grab a coffee, huge homemade cookie, or pie or an amazing Cuban sandwich! And the best part is that it’s going on for almost a month!! Times do vary I believe.

Three generations on girls weekend shopping spree. We had a great time and found some treasures in the antique mall. The tea and spice shop was amazing and we made a number of purchases there, All the boutiques were well stocked with some unusual finds.

What a beautiful little town. There’s so many little shops to go shopping and explore. It’s a quaint, clean, and friendly little town. Many places to also eat. We enjoyed our visit there and hope to go back soon.

This town has managed to keep the small town feel in the modern downtown area. Lots of choices for shopping and food within walking distance. Great way to spend good quality time outside on a beautiful day.
