Las Colinas Irving

5216 North O'Connor Road

Irving, TX


Many people who move to Texas get their humble beginnings employed in Las Colinas in Irving, TX. In 1997, I was one of them who was relocated. A lot of growth has taken place.


This view was taken where I attended a meeting yesterday afternoon. Many companies also hold conventions at the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau located at 500 W Las Colinas Blvd. "Local historians think this city was named for author Washington Irving." Quoted from the a plaque in Las Colinas. 


"Great minds have Purposes;

Others have Wishes."

--- Washington Irving


Other points of interest in Las Colinas include the following:

  • Toyato Music Center
  • Gondala Cruises
  • Irving Arts Center
  • Mustangs of Las Colinas & Museum Exhibit




Main Street in Grapevine, TX

"All the stories I'll ever need are right here on Main Street."

--- Robert Cormier


Some people prefer the laid back Main Street feeling of the arts and entertainment. There are quaint shops, art galleries, the Palace Arts Center, Wineries, Christmas Parades, and annual summer street closings for fun, fun, fun, bringing on the vendors, carnival rides, the taste of Grapevine, wine tastings, and that old nostalgic feeling of family and friends taking over the streets of Main Street.  



Gas Prices in Flower Mound on 11/30/18


As a real estate agent who travels many miles a day, this is the best view of all! When I filled up last week I was happy with paying $2.53 per gallon. Wait a day or a week and all the views change. WOW! There was a significant drop in price and I like that! With prices like this, I can drive further. I'll always drive the distance for business, my clients and friends --- Patricia

Dena Smith - Hi! It's good to meet you here on ActiveRain. Hopefully, we can do business together or catch up for a coffee break the next time I'm in Las Colinas. It's only 17 miles away from Flower Mound. 

You raise good points! Those means of transportation weren't available to me when I first moved to Las Colinas. It sure has grown in the right direction! I hope we can meet up soon!

I think in the near future I will take a drive up there. It's a drive for us as we live 20 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico...

Nice write up about the lovely views in your area. Those gas price look pretty good too. We pay $3.20 a gallon here for premium. And, when were in Hawaii recently, gas was $4.50 a gallon for regular. Wow...

Hello Patricia - my head is full of thoughts but somehow I keep thinking of your low gasoline prices compared to California.

You had me at the gas prices!  Holy cow!  I’m in one of the highest gas taxed states and we are just under $4 for premium.  By the way, I like the other things you mentioned but that sign with the gas prices blew me away! LOL!
