Dallas has a great deal of growth and development, but this nostalgic area of McKinney Avenue was a great place. The streetcar is just fun, and the eclectic mix of old signs, buildings and establishments was a very nice area to visit. If you wanted to sit back and enjoy...this was a fun place to visit.

This is a fun area to eat and shop. There are wonderful stores to pop in and out of. Parking is difficult, We had to drive around a bit to find a spot.

There is always something happening on McKinney Ave. There are great shops and bars and restaurants to explore. The trolley is a great addition to allow visitors to get around. It is fun in the day and takes on its own persona in the evening. This is a great place to meet friends for cocktails.

McKinney Ave has tons of bars and restaurants, as well as shopping. There's a free trolley that runs the length of it and also has a stop at KW park.

Mckinney has a great trolley that takes you up and down it for free. You and hop on and off at your leisure getting to try out all the great venues along the way. Fun place to hang with a group of friends or just as a couple.

From all the fancy eatries to things to do and see, most are located in this ave. There is also a free trolly that goes through this ave to make it much better of an experience since parking sometimes is hectic to find.
