You must visit downtown McKinney home to some of the best and most unique places to eat.  You can eat at the Spoon Cafe or the pantry and go back in history, or pick la Misha, GoodHuse, or Mamma Emilia and literally pretend you are in NY only better food, and nicer people.  Or go to Cafe Malaga and pretend you are in Spain !  There are also tons of shops, wineries, and a cool candy store that your kids would love.  If time permits don't forget to visit Heard-Craig House, and the Farmers market (only on Saturdays).  It is also a great place just to relax, walk, and take it easy.


McKinney also has sevral great parks including Towne Lake where you can rent Paddle boats and Erwin and myers park a great place for mountain biking, fishing, and hikingthrough beautiful nature trails.
