McKinney is #2 on Money Magazine's Best Places to live list!

In the August 2012 issue of Money Magazine, McKinney ranked #2 on the places to live in America. McKinney is the only Texas city in the top 10. Money editors and writers look at employment, schools, crime, safety, and overall quality of life aspects to come up with the list.

When writers visited McKinney, they ranked the city highly based on beautiful natural parks and open spaces, affordable and diverse housing, plenty of jobs and a vibrant downtown that offers residents abundant activities.

"The city offers plenty of housing options, from starter homes to old Victorians and 'Texas-style- five-bedrooms. Low taxes have lured companies with white-collar jobs in technology and energy, a new hospital opened in July, and a conference center and hotel complex is in the works." McKinney also boasts "easy access to rolling green hills, golf courses, and leafy open spaces lacking in neighboring towns." - Money Magazine

McKinney debuted on the Money Magazine list in 2008 at #14. In 2010, the city ranked as the #5 Best Place to Live in America. McKinney has been among the fastest-growing cities in the country since 2000.
