WOW ~ McKinney, TX and Allen, TX were just named in the Top 15 of CNN Money's "Best Places to Live" 2012! 


 It really is no surprise that McKinney TX (voted #2) and Allen TX (voted #13), two Northern suburbs of Dallas, made CNN Money's 2012 "Best Places to Live" list.  

 

City of McKinney ~ CNN Money's #2 Best Places to Live 2012

Both McKinney and Allen have seen great growth in the past years and have still been able to hold on to their small town feel which really brings a sense of Community to it's residents. 


In addition, both the McKinney ISD and Allen ISD are revered as excellent school districts. They are home to many major Corporations, Sports Complexes, Mom & Pop Stores and Restaurants as well as Chain Stores/Restaurants AND both McKinney and Allen have numerous Family friendly events year round!    It's really no wonder that CNN Money listed our 2 Dallas Suburbs in their top 15 "Best Places to Live"!

I love learning about new towns and places around the country.  Looking at these two, they both sound like very nice, vibrant places to live.

McKinney is a great place to live indeed ~ very family centered! And though its growing, it still holds onto the small town charm!
