Irving is sandwiched between the two big conurbations of Texas--Dallas and Forth Worth. Downtown Irving hosts most of the tourist sights and the heritage district gives an impression of what the town looked like last century with the Heritage Park at its core. Las Colinas is one of its more interesting suburbs.

The city is criss-crossed with highways and there are numerous hotels downtown. Irving falls under Dallas Area Rapid Transit system (DART) and a rail line linking Irving to Dallas is planned. Irving is, however, on the line of the Trinity Railway Express (TRE), which links it with its two neighbors as well as the airport.
