When people move to a new city or town from out of state, one of the first things they do is to go online to check out fun activities for the family in the new place. Right now people are moving to McKinney,TX in droves, so if you’re new to the area we wanted to share 2 things with you that we enjoy doing here, in hopes that your family will too. We also included 2 date day/night activities! 🙂
1. McKinney Square: We love to go to the downtown area in McKinney called the Square! It’s full of restaurants, coffee shops and shopping—there are even a couple of wineries where you can stop and have tastings! You can park nearby and walk all around the area. They have a little bit of everything there, and you’ll find something for everyone!
2. Towne Lake Recreation Area. This is another place we love to go. Here you’ll find picnic shelters, sand volleyball, horseshoe pits, paddleboats—everything you could want for having fun in the outdoors! One of McKinney’s tag lines is that they’re “Unique by Nature” and you can really take advantage of McKinney’s nature here.
Date Ideas For The Adults:
3. Franconia Brewing Company. This is something we like to do as a couple, not so much with the kids! You can tour the facilities to see how the beer is brewed. It’s a really neat thing to have right here in our own backyard! But you need to be at least 21 years old for this one.
4. Mitas Hill Winery. They have great food and wine here. It’s a great “date night” place, and they also do events and offer tours of the vineyards.
If you already live in the McKinney area, please share this with your new neighbor!
