For residents of our McKinney apartments, you’ll love living at Saxon Woods for lots of reasons—but one of the biggest perks? Is the location. Not only will you live in close proximity to fun parks and activities for the summertime, but you’ll also live super close to some seriously tasty ice cream shops. Here are some of the yummiest choices nearby.
Just over half a mile from our apartments in McKinney is one of the most beloved ice cream shops in the region—Handel’s. Creating homemade ice cream since 1945, this classic dessert stop offers over 100 flavors and other tasty treats. Try a waffle cone of Black Cherry, Cinnamon Sticky Bun, or Peppermint Stick ice cream. Or, go for a sundae, shake, Handel pop, and more. View the menu, order online, and more on the Handel’s website.
Another well-known and adored ice cream chain less than 15 minutes away is Marble Slab Creamery. Here, you can pick decadent ice cream flavors and have your favorite toppings mixed right in, on top of a marble slab – and the options are practically endless.

If there’s a name you can trust when it comes to ice cream, it’s Braum’s, and they’ve been making fun flavors ever since 1968. They are world-famous for their ice cream sundaes but they offer nearly every sweet treat under the sun. Try a giant Banana Split, go dairy-free with a Sherbert Freeze, or mix it up with candy-infused Mixes where you choose your favorite ice cream flavor and blend it with your favorite candy or candy bar.
