Just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a charming city with a small-town feel. Plentiful green spaces and comfortable pace present a vibe that is quite different from the downtown urban sprawl. With this change of pace, most people don’t realize that McKinney is actually one of the fastest growing cities in America.
In this historic city, you will find beautiful tree-lined streets, diverse neighborhoods, great schools, a robust business environment, and a strong sense of community that make McKinney truly stand out.
As one of the most northern suburbs of Dallas, McKinney has a deep history unlike some of the neighboring towns. Main Street helps set this city apart from the rest. There are restaurants and cafes with patio seating where you can watch the mounted police patrol the street. Many of the buildings on Main Street are historic, some as old as 165 years. You can even take a tour of some of the oldest buildings still standing from the 1800’s.
Although most people from the downtown scene won’t often take a trip out to this city, there’s actually lots for the residents to enjoy. Money Magazine even ranked McKinney the #1 Best Place to Live in America in 2014. As you would expect tons of people are flooding to the city to find more affordable living and we’ve seen brand-new apartments popping up everywhere.
Outside of the downtown district, you will find so much of what makes this city a popular relocation right now. There are tons of great Texas style eats, brewery’s, winery’s, and of course a local mall. The parks out here are huge and you can even go paddle boarding on Towne Lake. No better way to beat the summer heat.
McKinney life began around Main Street and there are some pretty cool museums where you can embrace the heritage that made the city. Recent growth has allowed for new developments all over the city, bringing in more restaurants and shops than ever.
This is one suburb that has everything you could want from a place you call home. Another hot area where new apartment buildings are filling up quickly. The low cost of living is attracting more and more people from the downtown Dallas scene every day, and the growing community is why they stay. We love what’s happening in McKinney, so let us show you where the deals are at. Apartments out here are a steal right now.
