Destination guide

Irving is a perfectly planned vacation spot

With its large, planned blocks and leafy residential districts, its undulating golf fairways and shimmering Fortune 500 business rises, Irving comes wedged in the very heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The result is a town where PGA Tour events mingle with global conferences, and where the stylish Irving vacation rentals also have all the world-class attractions, international dining, and buzzing nightlife of Dallas Downtown on the doorstep. Throw in quick access to the famous recreation grounds of Lewisville Lake and bingo – this one could just be the perfect spot to vacation with the whole family.

Things to do

PGA courses and the delights of Dallas in Irving

There are plenty of reasons why this section of the DFW Metroplex is considered one of the golfing meccas of all Texas, which is precisely why those traveling with clubs in tow should search for Irving vacation rentals close to the courses of Bear Creek or the TPC Four Seasons – both top places to search for that hole in one. Others will want to break out from Irving altogether and enjoy the delights of Dallas. They come in the form of the infamous Dealey Plaza, the 66-acre Dallas Arboretum, the soaring Reunion Tower – the list goes on…


Get some well-earned R&R in Irving

Irving is all about getting some hard-earned rest and relaxation. Golf courses and country clubs pepper the blocks, while there are sprawling shopping malls for that retail therapy all along the bustling Airport Freeway. You'll also want to take some time to wonder at the handsome Mustangs monument and its adjoining museum, while trips out to the lakes of Lewisville and Grapevine promise pretty picnic spots, walking trails, kayaking waterways, and boating jaunts, all next to large-scale conference centers and sports complexes.


Irving's Indian summers

While the summertime in Irving promises plenty in the way of golfing enjoyments, and the PGA Byron Nelson event in May tends to kick things off nicely, there's really no better time to visit here than during the fall. Book your Irving vacation rentals in the months of September, October, and November to be in with some of the top weather in Texas, and get long, lazy days of warm sun on the banks of Lewisville Lake. It really can't be beaten.

Natural features

Irving hides in the Metroplex

Irving is hemmed in on all sides by the growing sprawl of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, which means you'll mainly find manicured city parks and little recreational lakes in the region. However, it's just a short hop north to the banks of Lake Lewisville and Lake Grapevine to get some more in the way of real Texan backcountry. There, you can kayak and fish, or simply stick to the LLELA Nature Preserve to wander oak hammocks, creeks, and wetlands – keep your eyes peeled for rare martins and thrushes in the winter months.
