When your group is ready to hit the road again to explore new destinations - taking necessary health precautions along the way, of course - McKinney, Texas, is waiting to welcome you.
Historic Downtown McKinney is one of those special places, the perfect destination for your group’s bus tour or day trip. The city’s picturesque, quaint square is undisputedly one of North Texas’s most vibrant historic downtowns where nostalgia will wash over you, transporting you back to simpler times. Boasting roughly 120 mom-and-pop businesses, the square is filled with one-of-a-kind, locally-owned restaurants, specialty shops, boutiques, art galleries and studios, wineries, and a boutique hotel. The square is an especially popular destination for bus tours because there is something for everyone, all found within several walkable blocks. Bus parking is readily and easily accessible. The square draws visitors from across the United States and more than 85 countries.
For guests who love history, there is plenty to keep you busy! The City of McKinney is actively involved in restoration and revitalization of its downtown square that has been classified as a National and Texas Main Street City and a Texas Historic Cultural District. The historic downtown walking tour is a big hit with tour groups, as are tours of Chestnut Square Heritage Village, the Collin County History Museum, and the Heard-Craig Center for the Arts, which offer intriguing aspects of McKinney’s story. These museums are open and are following safety procedures when welcoming groups for tours of the properties and exhibits. Self-guided historic tours are readily available, thanks to special online maps filled with details that are available for mobile use. For even more history, the historic Collin County Courthouse sits in the center of the square and houses the McKinney Performing Arts Center where guests can see plays and concerts, as well as award-winning artwork you can see displayed year round on the walls of the old courthouse.
Live music by talented local musicians can be found throughout town at various restaurants and other venues. Recently named a designated Texas Music Friendly Community by the Texas Governor’s Office, McKinney is a haven for up-and-coming and established musicians and singer-songwriters. Guests can enjoy a variety of music during dinner and while savoring a glass of wine with friends at many restaurants and wineries most evenings each week.
