If you are looking to live, educate your children or retire with that smaller community feeling yet close enough to the metroplex for those extended weekends, look no further than McKinney, Texas. Located just north of Dallas on the original Dallas corridor of highway 75 and founded by Collin McKinney, this community has all the amenities of the larger suburbs and is rated as one of the areas most progressive cities.
Residents enjoy the old town feel of the downtown square that houses many shops and restaurants and is extremely impressive during the Christmas season. You will find the historical district with several homes built before 1900, and yes there are those sellers that put their home on the market for sale. As an individual that has lived in McKinney, I can attest to the casual lifestyle that is evident throughout the city. Having had family members as teachers in McKinney ISD, I can tell you that the McKinney administrative staff is all about quality academics. A very caring and loving community. Don't hesitate to give yourself a chance to visit this remarkable community.
