Actually, the housing available in McKinney currently on the market ranges in price from $30K to $2.8M (anything over $3M is in Fairview ). McKinney does NOT have their "own Beach Club". The master planned community of Stonebridge Ranch has several pools with one having a beach entry area. Of course this new area is going to be attractive to anyone coming from some bad areas that may be in South Dallas. With over 1500 homes for sale in McKinney and that does NOT include the houses that builders may not have listed on MLS one should easily be able to find a house within their budget. I personally would NOT recommend McKinney if one works in downtown Dallas. The commute would be brutal and all of those fluffs available if one DOES live in Stonebridge would be meaningless as they would not have the time to enjoy such. I'm glad you have found your slice of "Heaven on Earth" but it is by far not for everyone.

FYI, might want to have the teacher go over your post Not to nitpick but one does not capitalize the first letter in each word as well as a few other minor errors.

What a curious post. You are absolutely right, except that a large portion of the budget goes to groundskeeping, which you can enjoy on your way home at 8pm...

LMAO. My first thought as well.

There is no reason to be rude to other people. McKinney is a great area to live and close to just about everything. Or as close as you can get when you live in Texas.

Close to just about everything? There are a lot of things out here, but McKinney is not *close* to everything, even given Texas standards.

However, I will agree that it's a great place to live.

McKinney is close to Allen and Sherman thats about it. Brutal commute if you plan on going farther than Plano.

If I were relocating the only way I would move to McKinney is if my job was in Mckinney

True. I was just letting people know that may come on here that it is NOT the end all be all especially if one has to work in Downtown Dallas and/or prefers the nightlife of a large city that Dallas offers. Talk about KILLER. YIKES!

And NO, as a Native Texan I will say that McKinney is NOT close to everything even by Texas Standards. That only applies in places WAY OUT in the country and then your not dealing w/ bumper to bumper traffic 24/7, just the farmer that is on the FM road w/ his tractor

I suppose "close" has different meanings to everyone. Personally, I find McKinney "close" to a lot of stuff by my rural standards. To me, close means that I can get to a place in a car in a couple of hours or so. In about 2hrs I can go to a rodeo, visit a museum or zoo, ride a boat on the lake, attend a university, go camping/fishing, see a "broadway" play, attend a major league game (baseball, basketball, hockey, football), spend the day at an amusement park and dine at a 5 star restaurant. Sure, these would be "destination" trips where I'd plan on spending the day or several hours. I have said that if I worked in downtown Dallas, I personally wouldn't want to drive from McKinney. But I don't mind driving for entertainment. You have to remember this is coming from a gal who grew up driving 4 hours to attend a major league baseball game or 2.5 hours to shop at a "real" mall. We used to consider any place we could drive to in less than 4 hours was "close".
