Because of Irving's close proximity to both Dallas and Fort Worth, it's easy to enjoy the best attractions and entertainment of all three cities. Irving often serves as an ideal meeting destination located immediately adjacent to both DFW International Airport and Downtown Dallas. The Irving Convention Center offers modern exhibit halls, elegant ballrooms and spacious pre-function areas with views of the Dallas and Las Colinas skyline.
Irving boasts over 80 hotels with more than 11,500 guest rooms, including the only AAA Five-Diamond resort in Texas-- the Four Seasons Resort and Club; this luxury conference resort with European-style spa and sports club situated on a TPC championship golf course located in Irving’s Las Colinas development. The TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas Resort has hosted the HP Byron Nelson Championship of PGA Tour since it opened in 1986. Las Colinas also features two other private country clubs, including the Las Colinas Country Club and Hackberry Creek Country Club with four championship golf courses surrounded by gated communities. Irving’s Las Colinas area is home to more than 2,000 companies including the Fortune 500 global headquarters for Commercial Metals, ExxonMobil, Fluor and Kimberly-Clark.
Las Colinas’ waterway canals, high-rise office towers, retail centers, upscale residences, apartment complexes, leisure facilities and its signature Mustangs sculpture and fountain and Flower Clock have made Irving a business capitol in the DFW Metroplex. Schools in the local area include Irving Independent School District, Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District, and The Highlands School, a private Catholic school for Pre-K through Grade 12 students. North Hills Preparatory, an Uplift Education charter school, is also located in Las Colinas.
