In 2014, Money’s list focused on cities with populations of between 50,000 and 300,000 people. The magazine considered “economic strength, job growth, affordable housing, safety, schools, accessible healthcare, arts and leisure and ease of living.”

What Money said about McKinney

“Underlying McKinney’s Southern charm is a thoroughly modern city,” Money says. Money editors write: “The area is a hotbed for growth-industry jobs. Raytheon recently brought a 3,600-employee division to town, and companies in green energy, aviation, and medical services have also moved to the region.


Career and college prep are big in McKinney’s schools. AP courses start in middle school, and high schoolers can get internships in a range of industries. Technology is central; grade schoolers get lessons on wired smartboards, and starting in January 2015, every high school freshman was issued a MacBook Air laptop.


The historic downtown houses a mix of art galleries, boutiques, and farm-to-table restaurants, as well as basics like a butcher, shoe repair, and farm-supplies stores. … Housing options range from restored Victorians to Texas-style mansions.” The magazine also notes that the city has an unemployment rate of 5.4 percent.
