McKinney is one of the furthest north suburbs of Dallas, but it is growing at a tremendous pace! There’s a seriously cute (yes, that’s the best way to say it) historic downtown area, with local shops, coffee spots, restaurants and even a little space for outdoor music.
McKinney is also home to Landon Winery, perfect for an afternoon of wine tasting and cheese boards. Dallas favorite Emporium Pies also has a shop here and we can’t recommend it enough. Avid golfers will enjoy Oak Hollow Golf Course, just minutes from the historic downtown area.

Boasting easy access to major highways that connect McKinney to the rest of the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, McKinney offers excellent quality of life, a diverse array of housing options and a historic downtown area.
For the first 125 years of its history, McKinney served as the principal commercial center for the county. The county seat provided farmers with flour, corn, and cotton mills, cotton gins, a cotton compress, and a cottonseed oil mill, as well as banks, churches, schools, newspapers, and from the 1880s, an opera house.
