McKinney City Guide
Though McKinney, Texas has a population of just 161,905, it is the fastest-growing city in the country—back in 2006, that is. It was demoted to 2nd fastest in 2007 and 3rd fastest in 2008. Still, not too shabby for a country with a gazillion cities. It has a humid subtropical climate, which means low 90s in the summer and low 30s in the winter. Named after Texas Declaration of Independence signer Collin McKinney, his namesake was the commercial hub of the U.S. from the mid-1800s to 1970.
You’ll find plenty to do in downtown McKinney with over 120 shops, restaurants, cafes, and pubs. There are several wine tasting establishments in the downtown core, like Landon Winery (that offers personalized—with your photo and/or message!—wine labels) and Lone Star Wine Cellars (with Happy Hour Thursdays and live music on weekends). Once you’re three sheets to the wind, you can wander around town and pop into the many art galleries, antique shops, furniture stores, and other local boutiques.
Need a place for your “antiques” (if that’s what call your paper mâché Fabergé egg and Ralph DiMaggio baseball cards)? McKinney has a self storage facility in every corner of town.
If you’re a history buff, you should check out the original Collin County Courthouse, which is now the Performing Arts Center. Or take the whole family to the Texas Archery Academy where a one-hour archery lesson is sure to turn you into Robin Hood (or at least his merry men). And if you think of yourself more as the artistic type, check out a BYOB Painting Class at Wild Brush Studio where a professional art teacher will help you recreate a famous painting of your choice (but won’t help you smuggle it into the Louvre).
Visit McKinney, Texas during the end of May to cheer on participants of the annual Bike the Bricks race. If you have lederhosen, suspenders, and felt Alpine hat just lying around you house, come here at the end of September to blend in with other Oktoberfest frolickers at this 14-block beer garden. And while you may not think “Texas” when you think of Christmas, McKinney’s Home for the Holidays festival, with its horse-drawn carriages, tree lighting ceremony, and live entertainment, is ye olde fashioned fun for the whole family.
Keep your home clutter-free by renting a self storage unit for all your out-of-season paraphernalia—unless, of course, your lederhosen and horse are just your normal way of life.
