We took our family with grandkids to see the square for Christmas & it was a delight. The shops were all lit up & we took pictures at the bigger than life nutcrackers & the sleigh. Then we had dinner at Rye. The only reason I didn't give a five is that it began to rain & shortened our walk... More

This old town area was a great place to meet up with friends and have dinner. All the restaurants are non-chain restaurants and all had something different to offer. Looked forward to going to the area each week I was in town for business.

The Historic downtown McKinney is chalk-full of great local shopping and a delicious restaurants. Tops on our list is Petina Green, Sugarbacon, and Cadillac Pizza Pub! And if you want a great butcher shop, Local Yocal is top notch! You can walk the entire square in an afternoon and visit almost every shop. Every visitor that we get, McKinney's Historic... More

No chain restaurants but quite a variety. Music in the evenings at many of them. Outside dining, wine tastings and shopping. Lots to do especially during festivals!

20 years ago, I walked my dogs down here because it was quiet. Now it is alive on weekends and lunch! Great options from cheap to high dollar. A few interesting shops with specialties and antiques, old and used books. Even a Star Wars shop on Chestnut St. Still miss the surly British Baker but more options now. Don't complain... More

During my family's weekend visit from California during the Cowboys' playoff game, a couple of us who weren't able to personally go to the stadium, traveled to McKinney to entertain ourselves. We were not disappointed!! Not only did we not get stuck in the huge rainstorm and tornado touch downs, we were completely charmed by the historic character and well-preserved... More

This is a lovely way to spend time shopping, eating and walking the square. Downtown McKinney is especially festive during the holidays or their special events such as Octoberfest. Parking can at times be a challenge, but the square is worth the time spent looking for a spot to park. Ask those working in the shops what other places to... More
