About McKinney, Texas
The elements that established McKinney as unique from its very beginnings are the same that continue to attract residents, visitors and businesses to our community today. Beautiful tree-lined streets, diverse residential neighborhoods, outstanding educational opportunities, a robust business environment, a charming historic downtown and a strong sense of community make McKinney truly stand out. The unique by nature brand so strongly associated with the city is more than a tagline, it is a commitment that embodies the community’s willingness to work together to make McKinney a great place to be. As one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, residents, businesses and visitors alike show that they strongly embrace the community’s vision and strong overall quality of life.

Just 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, McKinney is a picturesque city with a small-town feel that is quite different from the Metroplex’s urban sprawl. Our friendly charm, green spaces and comfortable pace belie the fact that McKinney, with a population of more than 155,000, is one of the fastest-growing cities in America.

The nation continues to recognize McKinney as a stand-out community. Money Magazine ranks McKinney the #1 Best Place to Live in America in 2014. Factors considered included employment, schools, crime and safety, as well as overall quality of life aspects including a feeling of community pride. This adds to the accolades already received from Forbes, Best Life Magazine, CNNMoney and more.

While many factors combine to make McKinney a truly special place in America, it is the people in McKinney who bring these vibrant qualities to life. That community spirit is embodied in a friendly, safe and inviting city that holds strong ties to its roots and history while enjoying rapid economic development and continually adding new amenities that compliment and expand our unique quality of life.

This is McKinney, Texas, and we are unique by nature.
