“Nice lots to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Fun traditional downtown to stroll around and shop. Lots of cute shops to explore and resturants to snack at. Spend the afternoon browsing shops to discover hidden treasures, we came home with much more then we went looking for!

“Good variety of shops, tastefully decorated.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

The street decorations changed from Fall to Christmas the weekend we were there so we were lucky enough to see both. We really appreciated the benches on almost every corner as we were visiting with a senior.
Lots of different, funky shops all with great window displays and architectural detailing.

“Great Ambiance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

The historic square of McKinney, TX is well worth a visit. There are 'uptown' clothing shops along with the antique, home decor and other miscellaneous shops and restaurants. Just off the main square you will find several quaint shops with a variety of goods. One sales just salsas; a huge variety of salsas that make great gifts or to take home for yourself; not your grocery-store variety of salsas.
The old, historic, Court House building, located in the center of the square, has been fully renovated is now home to a variety of entertainment venues and available for bookings. Check it out when you visit.
