Find hotels in McKinney near the downtown historic district and you'll be within walking distance of boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. Choose a self-guided tour brochure from the McKinney Visitors Center to learn more about the heritage buildings that line the streets, and be sure to visit Chestnut Square Historic Village, which recreates life in the 1850s through its collection of historic buildings. You'll also find artifacts representing the history of North Texas at the Collin County Historical Society and Museum. One reason McKinney vacations are great for families is the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary. The popular 289-acre site includes five miles of hiking trails, 50 acres of wetlands where you can go canoeing, a butterfly house, a native plant garden, and a fun ropes course.
Take advantage of McKinney vacation packages during the holiday season and you'll experience some of the city's best annual events and celebrations. The Heard Museum, for example, celebrates the season with its Christmas Holiday Trail of Lights and live music performances in the amphitheater. The city also offers a holiday tour of historic homes downtown. The homes are decorated, and after your tour you can hear carolers singing in Chestnut Square. Other events include a Fourth of July hometown parade and fireworks show and Oktoberfest in September with three days of German-themed fun.
