Daytrippin' in McKinney

Fans of the TV show, The Daytripper, know Chet Garner well. McKinney was thrilled to host him and his crew for a couple of days in February 2020. They were here filming all their fun antics for the McKinney episode, now airing as part of Season 11, on Texas PBS stations.  The full episode is available on Chet’s website when you become part of Team Daytripper

Where The Daytripper Visited While in McKinney

We’d love for you to visit the terrific businesses in town that helped us host the film crew - where they stay, ate, played, and had fun while in McKinney, places on the show, and a couple of others, too!
