What Its Known For
McKinney is a northern suburb of Dallas — like, really north. And it’s growing quickly! People are moving from the city to find more affordable areas and brand new apartments in McKinney and Allen are popping up everywhere.
We’ll be real with you: the McKinney/Allen area is not-so-secretly referred to as ‘Oklahoma’ by those in the city. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that you can get from McKinney to downtown in 30 minutes. You can’t, haha.
So what is there to do here? There’s a mall, of course, and your usual suspects in the ‘burbs (i.e. Target, Walmart, Michael’s). But there are cool things to do, too! There’s a cute cafe – Snug on the Square in McKinney that Yelpers favor. Also in McKinney is Landon Winery – easily worth a visit. A wine tasting is never a waste of time!
In Allen, there’s Mio Nonno for good Italian eats. Fun fact about Allen: there’s a rugby team. For serious, they’re known as Griffins Rugby and they’re kind of a big deal.
