More About McKinney, Texas

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 of nearly 195,000 in January 2020. 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. These attributes prompted Money Magazine to select McKinney as is #1 Best Place to Live in America in 2014.
