Mac Town Representin'!!!
Kate over at Centsationalgirl.com
is doing a link up of all our towns
and I am here to represent our town
What's so great about my town you ask?
Well let me show ya!
The Faires House
The Taylor House
All these homes are in the historic section of Chestnut Square in Downtown McKinney. (they even have ghost tours!) You can read all about them here>>Chestnut Square
McKinney is located 30 minutes north of downtown Dallas and offers major shopping centers and restaurants with all the modern conveniences of life. But what I enjoy the most is its downtown charm and quaint antique shops.
My most favorite shop and one you'll read about a lot here on my blog is
The Antique Company Mall
You can find so many treasures on any given day from old typewriters to vintage toys to vintage wedding gowns, they've got it all!
Historic downtown also offers upscale boutiques not found anywhere else and unique eateries as well as well known gelato -my fave - Paciugo!
Here is one of the oldest courthouses in Texas converted to a performing arts center
There's even a winery!
McKinney has also been on many lists as the best places to live in America :)
Recently it made the Money Magazine top 5 places to live in America and living here I can see why.
Tucker Hill Neighborhood
We have lots of parks and hiking trails and did I mention shopping! I love finding treasures in our thrift shops like the Goodwill and the other little hidden thrift stores and of course the weekly garage sales.
It's always fun to venture downtown. It's got a charisma all it's own.
