Everything is Bigger in Texas
They say everything is bigger in Texas. You witness its size on any map and experience it in local community pride. But, perhaps the best example of "bigger" living in Texas is found in the Las Colinas community in Irving.
Las Colinas and Irving are home to one of the largest arts districts in America and spotlights every professional sporting event. You'll find top-rated golf courses. And, of course, your choices for shopping and dining in this Dallas/Fort Worth town are bigger too.
To see what "big" is really all about in Las Colinas, let's start with the world-famous Mustangs of Las Colinas sculpture--the largest equestrian sculpture in the world.
The Mustangs of Las Colinas
The Mustangs of Las Colinas are an excellent way to get acquainted with the city. The Mustangs of Las Colinas are a realistic representation of nine mustangs galloping over a granite stream and said to symbolize the free-spirited heritage of Texas living. Created by Robert Glen, an African wildlife artist, the sculpture was installed after an eight-year process at the center of Williams Square Plaza in the Las Colinas Urban Center.
Since its installation in 1984, the Mustangs of Las Colinas have drawn visitors and residents alike to Las Colinas and Irving, TX.
Las Colinas Gondolas
The nation has gotten used to thinking about gondolas as something you find on a mountain. Traditionally, gondolas are a flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat. In Italy, gondolas are used for romantic sightseeing. In Las Colinas you have the opportunity to recreate the Venice experience. Gondola Adventures, Inc serves Irving and Las Colinas, whisking people through the Mandalay Canals and Lake Carolyn on an unforgettable trip. Although you can make it romantic, friends and families will also enjoy the experience. Beyond the classic tour, there are also extensive options to add food, dessert, or a singing gondolier.
Patrons of the arts will find the Irving Art Center an incredible venue. With a myriad of theater, art and music events and exhibits, there is something on the calendar for everyone. Some examples of what you’ll find at Irving’s beloved art epicenter are musicals, children’s theater, rotating art exhibits, and classes for all ages. Irving Arts Center is 10 acres fully dedicated to world-class culture.
