Simply put, Irving is where Dallas works. It is the home of the world headquarters of oil and gas industry giant ExxonMobil, as well as of the Las Colinas development, which includes the offices of Kimberly-Clark, Fluor, Commercial Metals, La Quinta Inn and Suites, and Mission Foods. In fact, per square foot, Las Colinas might be one of the most productive places in the DFW area. The Robert Glen Sculpture Mustangs at Las Colinas is one of the area's most famous sights. Even if you pass it every day on the way to work, you'll still want to snap a family photo in front of these bronze horses. Las Colinas isn't just for Irving residents, either: the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas brings in businesspeople from all over the globe, who come to take advantage of the considerable economic and cultural offerings that Irving has to give.
Las Colinas has more than a few wonderful restaurants to discover, so get busy eating! You can see the "city" from the comfort of your very own gondola--yes, oddly enough, Las Colinas is known for its canals and for Lake Carolyn, a small body of water that beautifies the Las Colinas campus. Whether you're in the mood for Tex-Mex or Thai, you can bet you'll find it right here in Irving.
In a town named after beloved American man of letters Washington Irving, you know there's bound to be a good arts scene. The locus of the arts in Irving is undoubtedly the Irving Arts Center, where you can take a gallery tour of fine art-- no trip to Dallas required! You'll also watch the Irving Symphony Orchestra perform, and all at this same complex where you send your kids for their art classes.
While there is plenty of boutique shopping nearby, but if you want the full "mall" experience, you're close to the Dallas Galleria, a beautiful indoor mall full of natural light, and one of the most sought-after shopping destinations in the area. Galleria shoppers will find Macy's, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue, plus specialty stores like Juicy Couture, Michael Kors, and Dooney and Bourke.
