You don't have to choose between the charm of a small, established community and the benefits of a contemporary, growing city. You'll find the perfect balance of both in McKinney's Eldorado Heights, where a rich cultural heritage and a progressive local spirit come together to create the best of both worlds.

A century and a half of well-preserved history lends a distinctive character to McKinney, a county seat with numerous listings in the National Register of Historic Places, including churches, museums, restored landmarks and Victorian homes.

At the same time, an ideal location in one of the nation's most rapidly growing counties has attracted and fostered a thriving mix of business, industry and residential progress.

Along with this growth has come an acclaimed educational system, featuring new McKinney Independent School District facilities near Eldorado Heights. The community is also home to park space and three swimming pools, with access to McKinney's extensive parks system via a hike-and-bike trail.

Community events and local attractions offer additional opportunities for family recreation and involvement, from holiday festivals and outdoor amusements to a multi-screen movie theater and shopping in quaint emporiums and art galleries.

But staying home is always a pleasure, too, when home is Eldorado Heights. Encompassed by the natural beauty of rolling hills and tree-lined waterways, and surrounded by master-planned communities of luxury homes, Eldorado Heights provides an appealing setting for affordable new homes crafted by quality builders.

The traditions of yesterday, the comforts of today and the promise of tomorrow - Eldorado Heights brings it all home.
