Irving is extremely diverse, and the Northern areas especially are high-demand. The city is very centrally located to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, especially the premier neighborhoods & towns like Southlake, Coppell, Las Colinas, and Valley Ranch. Irving is the former home of the Dallas Cowboys, but has remained well-kept, very well planned, and property values are excellent!

The city is continuing to grow and is constantly being developed. There is a variety of living spaces and has ethnic diversity. Irving is near larger cities with lots of outdoor activities like paddle boarding, live music festivals and art and activity centers. There's always things to do!
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!
