A Great Place to Live
Irving is a great place to live, work, play and raise a family. Bloomberg’s Business Week included Irving in its top 50 places to live and 20th best city for families.
The City offers a wide variety of housing stock and many great, vibrant and diverse neighborhoods. Whether your preference is apartment living in the Las Colinas Urban Center within walking distance to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Orange Light Rail, or a single-family home on a large, wooded lot, Irving has what you are looking for.
It is also a City that offers a vast array of cultural and lifestyle choices to suit all ages and preferences. From the nationally-recognized Irving Arts Center to the City’s numerous parks and recreation centers and outdoor events, individuals and families are never at a loss for things to do.
Other City amenities include four great libraries with the most current technology; dog parks; and Heritage Senior Center with a pool, workout room, full range of group exercises and classes, and a full-size pool. The center also serves lunch daily for a very low cost.
The Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau and City of Irving websites provide information about current events.
One thing you won’t want to miss as you wander around the Heritage District and downtown area is a stop at Big State Fountain and order a milkshake or malt while sitting at the counter of this old-time diner.
