We've been to the Saturday morning Farmer's Market and it gets very busy. Get there by or before 9 AM for the best selection of produce and baked goods. Vendors run out of the choice selections quick! Also a good place to bring your well-behaved pets. There is no fee for going to the Farmer's Market, just what you buy.
We have also been to Chestnut Square for the Haunted Tour and that was a lot of fun!!! It was a great evening out for us -- a date night. Would also be fine for kids not too scared in the dark, but young enough who are not too old for some cheesy laughs - probably 7 - 13 year olds. Teenagers do tend to lose their sense of humor. ;) There is a fee for the Haunted Tour.
We did go back to Chestnut Square in the daylight for a tour of the historic homes. There was a special event going on so it was busy. Check their website for event schedules. Sometimes there is something going on where they have the area / homes decorated special which makes it extra nice, other times not, but still nice place to see and learn about all the history in that area of McKinney. Some areas of Chestnut Square are open without a fee, some houses and then to get a guided tour, there is a fee.
