Living in McKinney, Texas might be the closest thing to living in paradise on Earth. We’re having some fun here, but what’s serious is McKinney’s reputation for high levels of employment, great schools, low crime and safety and quality of life amenities, making it one of the best places to live in the United States.
Read on to find out why McKinney is the only Texas City to make Money Magazine’s 2012 best places to live in America, ranking #2 in the entire US.
McKinney is located in Collin County, about a 25 minute drive from downtown Dallas. But, with well planned neighborhoods, a vibrant downtown with much to do, and lots of open space, golf courses, and parks, McKinney feels far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

When it comes to housing, the market is diverse, and offers a multitude of options for a variety of buyers. It wouldn’t be a town in Texas if you couldn’t find your fair share of Texas-size five bedroom monster homes.
But what sets McKinney apart is the robust market for starter homes, in addition to great character homes. Eldorado Village is a community of 700 homes in McKinney, while other smaller neighborhoods like Provine Farms Estates are smaller in community size with super size Texas homes.
Other great neighborhoods include Stonebridge Ranch, a large development with a variety of price points, as well as Craig Ranch, Westridge, and Adriatica Village – a unique newer development that was created in a way to replicate a village that would have taken centuries to develop. The property features commercial and retail space in addition to residences.
The area is served by McKinney Independent School District. The district is comprised of 20 elementary schools, five middle schools, three high schools, four alternative schools, and one early childhood education center. Collin County Community College also offers a campus in McKinney.
