About McKinney

Welcome to McKinney, Texas!  
McKinney No. 1 Money Magazine



Located just 30 miles north of Dallas, McKinney offers visitors the perfect getaway destination, with its tree-lined streets, historic downtown and tight-knit community giving this fast-growing city a friendly, small-town feel despite the city's population which was nearly 162,000 in January 2016. Home to one of the state’s largest historic districts, McKinney’s charm and comfortable pace is quite different from the metroplex’s urban sprawl, prompting Money Magazine to select McKinney as is #1 Best Place to Live in America in 2014 (up from the #2 spot in 2012, #5 in 2010 and #14 in 2008).
