Unique by Nature, Unique by Design

25 Jul

Greetings from McKinney, Texas, and welcome to our first VisitMcKinneyTexas blog! We’re a fast-growing community situated 30 miles north of Dallas. We pride ourselves on our unique qualities: a well-preserved and quite large historic district (over 1400 buildings, both commercial and residential), our parks and open spaces, our “green” initiatives, and our Texas hospitality.

From the quaint historic downtown square (complete with courthouse in the center, circa 1875) on our east side to the healthy living and athletic-oriented Craig Ranch area on the west side, McKinney truly offers something for everyone.

Through this blog, we’ll be sharing aspects of our community from the people who know it best – shop owners, wedding planners/venue management, “green” experts, arts community members, restaurateurs, historians, and more. Watch for new entries at first every couple of weeks, and building to weekly as our following grows. Look for upcoming information on McKinney as:

  • A growing & thriving arts community including our art galleries, stage productions and live music.
  • An eclectic shopping & dining center.
  • The wedding capital of north Texas.
  • A health-conscious community encouraging personal fitness, athletic competition, and healthy living.

We’re also open to suggestions, so if there is a topic you’d like to see covered in our blog that relates to McKinney, to Texas, or any related topic a visitor to our area would find interesting, please submit it to us and we’ll see what we can do to get the topic covered in the near future.

Thank you for stopping by our new blog, and we look forward to providing you with some information that’ll both inform and entertain you… that’ll help you understand why McKinney isn’t only “Unique by Nature,” but also “Unique by Design.”

    Looking forward to your posts! I’ve been hoping someone would do a post on Storybook Ranch. I still haven’t seen it. There is so much in McKinney and you’re in a great position to cover the whole she-bang!
