McKinney, Texas, which sits 35 miles north of Dallas, was named by Money Magazine as the 5th Best Place to Live in America in 2010. The city enjoys the distinction as one of the country’s fastest growing cities for the past decade, growing from a population of roughly 50,000 in 2000 to just under 132,000 in 2010. Founded in 1848, McKinney and the county of which it is county seat, Collin County, are both named for early settler Collin McKinney who was one of the five drafters and 59 signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence.
From its quaint, well-preserved and vibrant historic downtown square, tree-lined streets, rolling hills and open spaces to its cutting-edge medical facilities, state-of-the-art sports and fitness centers, and ample recreational park areas, McKinney truly offers something for everyone.
