“Art Fair”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Downtown McKinney is very picturesque, with nice shops, coffee places and a welcoming small town atmosphere. We happened to be there on the weekend of their annual art fair which was a hoot. All types of local artists and craftspeople. Locals were very helpful in suggesting restaurants for later in the evening. You could eve have your photo taken with Lance the Lemur who was so cute and friendly. A great way to spend a Saturday.

“Spring Break Vacation”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

This quaint, historic square had everything. Food, shopping, and we even attended a small car show Saturday morning. The Visitor's Center was the best to get information and buy a McKinney T-Shirt. The lady working there was very kind and helpful.

“Great please to see old and new items. Fun Resturants”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I just love this place. Locals call this the McKinney Square. Lots of antiques to shop. Take you time to browse around, eat at one of the restaurants on the square or do some wine tasting. Little ones might lose interest fairly quickly, but teens will like to take selfie pictures. Dickens weekend which is Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving is a special time. Little ones will have fun. The square is all decorated for the holidays and people are dressed up like the Dickens era.
