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.

"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
