Top Attractions for First-Timers

Irving is home to an array of attractions that will appeal to all interests and age groups. Here are some of the top spots and activities we recommend for those visiting Irving for the first time:

The Mustangs of Las Colinas

One of Irving’s most iconic attractions is the larger-than-life Mustangs of Las Colinas statue. This impressive sculpture features wild mustangs galloping across a stream, frozen majestically in time. It’s located right in the heart of the Las Colinas Urban Center, making it easy to access. Be sure to stop by this iconic Irving landmark and admire the beauty and artistry of the mustangs!

Dallas Heritage Village

Step back in time at Dallas Heritage Village, an authentic living history museum that recreates what life was like in North Texas during the 1800s to early 1900s. Wander through historic homes and buildings while costumed interpreters demonstrate common trades and daily activities from the era. From blacksmithing to soap making, you’ll get a first-hand look at the past.

Irving Arts Center

Calling all art lovers! The Irving Arts Center is home to galleries, art studios, theater spaces, and more. See what exhibitions or performances are happening during your visit. Or perhaps sign up for a hands-on art class in jewelry making, painting, pottery, and other fun creative pursuits.

Escape Rooms

Get your group together for an unforgettable experience at one of Irving’s popular escape rooms like Escape Haus, The Great Escape Game, or Escape Adventure. These interactive team activities challenge you to search for clues and solve puzzles to “escape” the room within the allotted time. It’s perfect for some friendly competition!

Pioneer Plaza

This impressive public plaza in downtown Dallas features the largest bronze sculpture in the world. Get up close to view the intricate details of the steers and cowboys depicted. Pioneer Plaza makes for great photo opportunities and is worth a quick stop if you’re already downtown exploring.

Zero Gravity Thrill Park

Looking for an adrenaline rush? Zero Gravity Thrill Park is Texas’ biggest and first amusement park dedicated to thrills. Experience 5 death-defying attractions including Skycoaster, Double Shot, Nothin’ But Net, Texas Blastoff, and the most insane one of all – Thrillseekers! Feel the rush as you soar, drop, flip and free fall.

Medieval Times

Medieval Times offers royal entertainment for the whole family. Watch an exciting show with knights competing on horseback, enjoy a medieval-style feast with no utensils, and cheer for your knight as he battles for victory in the tournament games. It’s an interactive dining experience you won’t soon forget!

How to Get Around Irving

Now that you know what to see and do around Irving, let’s discuss your transportation options for getting to the attractions conveniently and affordably.

Public Transportation

Irving is serviced by DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit), so you can get around parts of Irving and Dallas via public buses and light rail. Obtain a GoPass tap card and plan your route ahead of time using the DART website or apps. Do keep in mind that public transportation may be inefficient for certain destinations in Irving.

Taxis and Rideshares

Popular rideshare services like Uber and Lyft operate in Irving and can provide an easy way to get around. However, costs may add up quickly, especially during peak times. Taxis are another option but may not be as readily available. For single riders or small parties, rideshares and taxis work well.

Charter Buses

For larger groups or an entire party, chartering a private bus is often the best transportation option in Irving. You can choose the vehicle size that fits your exact group size, arrange hotel transfers, customize your own itinerary, and have door-to-door service around Irving and beyond. Charter buses provide comfort, convenience, and savings compared to other transportation methods. Irving Party Bus Company offers premier charter bus rentals in Irving and throughout Texas.
