Looking for McKinney Avenue apartments in Dallas?
McKinney Avenue is the main street of the Uptown District of Dallas, TX. However, it has become such a main attraction that many just refer to the street itself as a separate community. McKinney Avenue is well-known as the best place in downtown Dallas to find it all: bars, spas, restaurants, hotels, and even art galleries. The area is characterized by sidewalk cafes, boutique shopping, and lively night spots.
McKinney Avenue is more than 100 years old and hasn't always been known as such a "happening" place. However, McKinney Avenue has become such a well-known tourist attraction that the McKinney Avenue Trolley's sole purpose is to transport, at no charge, residents and visitors to McKinney Avenue from uptown to downtown with ease. The trolley is a heritage streetcar that runs down McKinney Avenue and terminates near the Dallas Museum of Art.
