As the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth have exploded with businesses, restaurants, and an arts and culture scene, the area has also overflowed with Texans and out-of-staters craving city life. Business and housing developments have diffused further and further past the cities' borders, creating what is now referred to by residents as DFW, or The Metroplex. An economic and cultural hub of north Texas that continues to grow rapidly. Residents spill out into the nearby suburbs within The Metroplex as the bustling central cities become popular and pricey to find the perfect balance of big city accessibility and small town culture.

Just 37 miles north of Dallas, the mid-sized towns of Frisco and McKinney have experienced continued development and population growth. Texans settling down outside of the city have caught on to the towns' perfect balance between proximity to the cities and a Main Street USA feel. Wedged between Frisco and McKinney, the neighborhood of Westridge has experienced this boom firsthand and continues to thrive and grow. With neighborhoods filling up faster than they can be built, our McKinney CubeSmart self-storage facility in Westridge gives residents a little more room for their seasonal items, sports equipment, or retired furniture.

Our store offers a variety of storage options, including outdoor parking for boat and RV storage. We also offer a free move-in truck, upon availability, to help you get your belongings to our store without making countless trips. For added convenience and peace of mind, our store manager lives on-site at our Westridge store.

Take a look at what our customers have to say about this store:

Things to Do in McKinney, TX

After a morning of moving in or out of storage, we recommend hanging around Westridge for an afternoon of small-town Texas food and fun.

If you time your move just right, you may even be able to enjoy McKinney’s own Oktoberfest. With dancing, activities for kids, and authentic German food and drink in a 14-block “beer garden,” this festival is a must-see—just remember to pull your German costumes out of storage!
