“Great Afternoon shopping”

Historic Downtown McKinney
Ranked #1 of 42 things to do in McKinney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We went to the historic downtown on our recent trip to McKinney. It was adorable. So many places to look for sourveniers of Texas. Slowpokes was our favorite. They have walls of different hot sauces, salsas, jellies. The best part was they everything for samples. I have never been one to buy a salsa or hotsauce without knowing what it tastes like but was amazing to try everything first. The peach and jalapeno jelly was amazing. They also had ghost pepper hotsauce which my husband loved. Also the canine cookie company was a big hit since everyone with was had a dog to buy treats for. The visitor center was so welcoming and had a brochure for everything you could possibly want. I also bought a McKinney hooded sweatshirt for $30.00 which I thought was a reasonable price.

It really is a great tourist spot. I dont know that anyone would do daily shopping there, but it is fun to visit and explore.

You can grab some gourmet coffee and shop for antiques. There are some wonderful ladies boutiques. Kids of all ages will love the town square candy shop and toy store.

One of the highlights of our recent trip to McKinney was visiting the stores around the historic downtown square. The stores were in their holiday glory. Shoppers were pleasant and parking ample.
