McKinney has quickly become one of the DFW area's top places to visit.

To help you maximize your time in McKinney, we have created a list of the top things to do. 

Sweet Caroline’s Gelato

Sweet Caroline’s Gelato is a fantastic way to start the day. In addition to delicious gelato, they also serve all sorts of coffee that will help you seize the day. I enjoy coming here for a morning coffee or a sweet midday pick-me-up of gelato to help me cool down and beat the summer heat. 

Historic Downtown McKinney

Downtown McKinney is the best place to shop and walk around in the entire city. With dozens of boutiques, restaurants, and bars there is always something to do. My favorite thing to do in Downtown McKinney is to walk around all of the stores, grab some food at The Yard or Cadillac Pizza, and maybe some dessert at Emporium Pies. 

The Yard

The Yard is a restaurant located in Downtown McKinney where you can eat, drink, and play outside. This indoor/outdoor restaurant features outdoor picnic tables, outdoor games, space for adults, children, and dogs to have fun outside, and an indoor dining room. They also have an outdoor bar. Their menu consists of tacos, nachos, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and more. I love coming here for dinner to enjoy a nice meal outside and spend some time with my friends and family.
