Living in Irving is fantastic! You have so many opportunities that is around you at all times. From short commutes, to school districts and to jobs, Irving is a great place to raise a family and to live. I is close by two of Dallas's airports and is close to many highways around the DFW metroplex. The area has a lot of income friendly homes from low income to high income. The people in the area are awesome. Great place!

One’s experience with Irving will be highly dependent on their nearness to Dallas. No real music venues here. The school district does a mediocre job of supporting its fine arts programs. Las Colinas is wealthy and well-accommodated in general. South/Central Irving is constantly under construction which is inconvenient virtually all year-round. However, the neighborhoods here are friendly and calm. Unfortunately, all major intersections seem to enjoy the regular passage of cat-callers who like to bother young pedestrians. Irving does boast a variety of churches, parks, and restaurants. Not a terrible place to raise a family. But certain areas are very populous on the sex offender registries.
Irving seems to be one of the fastest growing cities out there! With towns like Las Colinas and Valley Ranch growing not only in population but in the amount of businesses, the lack of entertainment is winding down. The diversity yet safeness in the community makes it the perfect place to raise a family and call home.
