I am a current Allen and former Mckinney resident. From my perspective Allen is friendlier and more socially cohesive. Because the entire town plan was more based on keeping amenities centrally located and shared. 75 splits the town in half, but unlike Mckinney there is little stigma to living on the eastside or in one of the few non mc mansion homes on the westside. Allen is more comfortable in its skin and doesn't try as hard as Mckinney to get noticed. It's more of a hidden gem that is a 2nd move location after arriving in Collin County. You land in Mckinney, Frisco or Plano as default relo-villes. But, once your here you wish you would have started in Allen.

I hope you are doing well. I worked in Trophy Club a few years ago and it is a very nice area. Many nice families and business professionals live in Trophy Club. McKinney is the 9th best place to live according to Forbes Magazine but the commute would be about an hour or an hour and a half depending on the day. If you are looking to move to McKinney, please let me know and I would love to help you find a home!! Good Luck!! ... more
