Comments: The city's tree-lined streets, historic downtown and tight-knit community give McKinney a friendly, small-town feel. Checkout the Chestnut Square Historical Village when scheduling your trip to McKinney to tie-in with what they may have going on. Visit http://www.chestnutsquare Grand Hotel is regarded as one of the best luxury hotels in Texas. Having undergone an extensive reconstruction in 2007, this landmark building, circa 1880, originally housed the Heard Opera House and Heard Mercantile store. If you plan more than a day in Collin County, consider staying a night at the Grand Hotel. Visit grandhotelmckinney.com. Located just 30 miles north of Dallas, McKinney offers the perfect getaway. Home to one of the state's largest historic districts and the country's fastest growing populations, McKinney's charm and comfortable pace is quite different from the metroplex's urban sprawl.
