McKinney, Texas was named the #1 Best City to Live in by Money Magazine’s 2014 cover issue “America’s Best Places to Live.” You’ll find McKinney to be a young, diverse community, educated and active in the arts, music, festivals, city growth and development. Residents and visitors are drawn to the Historic District that is alive with activities at the McKinney performing Arts Center, festivals, bike runs that soar through the square, or a Mardi Gras inspired pet parade, and most especially events honoring our fallen, Veteran parades, and Fourth of July parade. You can also count on great golf courses abounding in great master-planned communities like Craig Ranch with its TPC course, and exceptional courses like Stonebridge and Eldorado Country Clubs. As McKinney grows and develops to the full city it’s boundaries hold, you’ll always have a community “feel” because the people of the community embrace and nurture that feeling.
“People choose to make McKinney home for a number of reasons, like exceptional opportunities in education, continually growing recreational amenities, safe neighborhoods, free community events and access to jobs,” said Mayor Brian Loughmiller in a city release. “These factors played a major part in the community’s growth and successful national recognition.” “While many factors combine to make McKinney a truly special place in America, it is the people in McKinney who bring these brilliant qualities to life,” Loughmiller added. “That community spirit is embodied in a friendly, safe and inviting city that holds strong ties to its roots and history.” With Ebby Halliday McKinney Realtors, we are part of that community and are here for every season of your home needs.
