Thinking to move to Dallas suburbs from NY - 9/25/2020
I have only spent a few days in Mckinney and surrounding area such as Plano prosper Lucas Frisco and down town Dallas. The reason I and my family visited from New York we are thinking of relocating to Mckinney or near by places. We went in the begging of August we didn’t find the weather extremely hot. It was hot but it was dry. We looked at houses and we liked them. Home prices were affordable compared to NY. However, the restaurants were not cheap. We don’t go out to eat a lot. Prices in the supermarkets were very similar to NY like Target or Walmart. The schools seems had nice rating. I am a Nurse and working in NY afraid to make a move to Texas. We have small kids in elementary school. I would appreciate any input on living and working as a nurse in Dallas area Read More

McKinney vs Irving - 8/29/2019
I have lived in McKinney ( moved from my home town of Irving texas,) for over 3 years and I love it ! The cleanliness of this city is outstanding so is the shopping ! It's very safe and pretty ! I just found a great job that I love here! Overall I prefer McKinney over Irving !!! Irving being my home town I liked being there and it's clean for the most part and has nice enough people! Lol the shopping is average and saftey is good enough. If you have to choose I would recommend McKinney Texas. Read More

Leaving Mckinney - 4/12/2015
Left California in 2014 for the good life in mckinney tx. After living here for about s year, found out about the real cost to live in Texas. Yes, housing and gas are lower then CA. Everything else is about the same or more expensive. Healthcare is one of the worse in the country. What good is having a good economy like TX, if you can't take care of your peoples health. Car insurance is very high, groceries higher than CA for less quality. Pay is about one half less then CA. Traffic is horrible on 75,121,NDTR. The majority of people are not even from Texas. Im really disappointed about the lone star state that imports the majority of goods from CA. I will be moving back in June.There's no amount of money that can buy good weather like California. Read More

Urban for Suburban - 3/24/2015
It's realitivly alright. Mostly quiet slightly boring to me but then I moved herd 7 years ago from Dallas. Schools are good though. Houses are nice for the money. It is pretty and has plenty of wildlife. Not to far from Dallas however since everyone from every other state has moved to Dallas it can take over two hours to get back to McKinney and plenty of tolls that are steep unless you take 75 highway. Not a lot of good restaurants here or shopping but plenty of supermarkets and great healthcare facilities. So if you just want pretty, quiet, like to cook. This is your kind of place.Lots of birds and wildlife. And crepe myrtles. Lots of crepe myrtles. Do be wary of shopping downtown however you can't return anything. Local Yocal meat market though I like down there. Hated it when I first moved here. But it's grown on me and I like to cook. :) Read More

Great place to live - 8/19/2013

Laid back living near the big city - 10/8/2012
I find McKinney, TX to be a laid back family town, but is close to the big and lively excitement of Dallas. However, you don't have to go to Dallas to find entertainment, dinning, and family activities. McKinney provides a safe environment for your family to be active in many outdoor activities, and the school system is one of the finest in the state.

If you are looking for a safe, yet active community with good jobs and healthcare, please look at McKinney, Read More

Nice Town - 7/27/2012
Nice town to raise family. Crime is love in west Mckinney, family oriented with more to do that other Dallas Suburbs. Lots of shopping with outlets and malls. Traffic has increased with rapid growth. Schools are good for those college bound. Home prices and rent average with lots of inventory to chose from. Still new home building and lower than the cost of the average price, can find a new home under 200.00. Historic down town trendy, and many major employers near by in Frisco or Plano. North Texas university and Texas Women U. within 30-40 mins. Close to Dallas Toll Roads. Over all Mckinney is a great town. Conservative town, clean and new. Read More
