Default Going from Metro Rail to underground tunnel system

I will be using the Metro Rail system for the first this week and am going to the Main Street Square Station (From the south so I'll be getting off on the Northbound side).

Once I get off the Metro Rail at Main Street Square, what is the quickest way I can get into the underground tunnel system?

Through the tunnel entrance at Main Street Square which has a big sign up top marking it as such. This is one of the few street level entrances.

The sign says "McKinney Place Tunnel Entrance" and is just north of McKinney on the southbound rail side. I thought I had a decent picture of it, but I don't.

On the same (east side of Main, northbound side) side you can go in the CVX Pharmacy and get you down into the heart of the tunnel system as well. If you go that way, turn right entering the tunnel and keep veering to the right at intersections and it will get you to the "Tunnel Loop" section which has a lot more density of restaurants and shops than going left.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the CVS. Its location is pretty obvious too when getting off the train.
