Guest Blogger: 21 Reasons Why I'm Obsessed with McKinney
Posted on August 3, 2016 at 12:25 PM by Beth Shumate
We sat down this week with Collin County blogger Becca Niederkrom to talk about all the things we love about McKinney. We'd seen the blog entry she shared with her readers late last year and asked if we could share it with our readers too and she enthusiastically said "yes". (Our readers thank you, Becca!)
McKinney is located (just) 30 miles north of Dallas and is probably my favorite town in Collin County and the entire Dallas Metroplex. Yup, I think it is adorable. Even the hubby loves hanging out in the cute downtown.
We love it because it has that small-town feel (that you would think would be in every Texas city) despite the city’s population which topped 155,000 in January 2015. In fact, Money Magazine selected McKinney as its #1 Best Place to Live in America in 2014 (up from the #2 spot in 2012, #5 in 2010 and #14 in 2008).
McKinney is on its way up y’all!

Thank you again, Becca, for sharing this with us. We look forward to working with you to promote all the aspects that make McKinney such a great place to live and visit!
