“Worth a visit”

Historic Downtown McKinney
Ranked #1 of 39 things to do in McKinney
Certificate of Excellence

There is a reason Money Mag voted this the second best place to live in the USA. The square and main street are what towns should be, inviting, interesting places to walk, shop and eat.

We love McKinney and enjoy wandering the Main Street and surrounding area. The area has been developed very sympathetically and there is virtually no empty spaces to be had. We find the shop keepers so friendly too.

I'm glad we found McKinney Square a few years ago. We love it down there and go as often as we can. The Cadillac Pizza Pub is great for live music, although everyone always complains it's too loud to talk and it's always packed. It's fun though if you get a good seat and have fun people with you. Square Burgers is great as well, my favorite hamburger spot. Everyone always loves what they eat and if you are a beer lover they have "flights" that you can order a variety of draft beers to try out. Lots of fun! You can't go wrong with Spoons for breakfast or brunch. Also for flavored popcorn Mom and Pops is a nostalgic little shop with old time candies and drinks that remind you of when you walked to the store as a kid to get your favorite snack food. I like their red popcorn that reminds me of the hot tamale candy. Not to mention the shopping ALL around the square and the other fun places to eat, drink and be merry!

This quaint downtown square is a bustling place with great dining, fun and unique shops and a wonderful small town atmosphere. You'll be glad you visited. Was at Spirit of the Cowboy Festival - fun!

For myself, or for any out of town guests, I always enjoy a trip to downtown McKinney. Dine, shop, browse, enjoy!
