Irving Texas punches way above its weight class in a number of areas. For a city of no more than 230,000 people sandwiched between heavy hitters like Dallas and Fort Worth it can more than hold its own in nightlife attractions and family friendly venues which hold a treasure trove of historical and cultural information.
But there is another perhaps hidden side to Irving that visitors may not know about – and this is the fact that it has some of the most attractive and interesting shopping experiences in Texas.
There are a wide variety of malls and select smaller outlets that will allow the visitor the Irving the opportunity to explore a whole of retail options.
Take for instance ‘NorthPark Center’ which has been haled as one the best shopping experiences in the world. Here the consumer can enjoy 235 retailers ranging from Tiffany & Co to Neiman Marcus and much. much more. The excitement of this mall doesn’t end with high class shopping. There are entertainment options and ding to suit every taste. Try the Kona Grill or Seasons 52 and of course Maggiano’s Little Italy for some great international meals and of course pizza that will delight the taste buds.
Travel a little further afield and you can enjoy an attraction that is at the heart of the Texas experience.
The Ft. Worth Stockyards drag you back into an era of the old West. This is a place where you can explore all that is original and unique to Texas.
Pop into the Beef Jerky Outlet and let your taste buds run wild or spend some time at the Longhorn General Store where everything from bespoke ice cream to T Shorts and chili mix is available. Or if that chili mix isn’t enough to get your heart beating then pop on over to Texas Hot Stuff which stocks enough to get get even the tamest of hearts beating that little bit quicker.
But no trip to Texas would be complete without the purchase of some fantastically detailed boots – and there is no place better than the Boot Barn.
Hats and boots and various Cowboy wear is what it is all about. You could buy these at another venue – but why bother. Great service and old style charm make this the place to go for that great memento of your trip to Irving.
Irving has malls that will take your breath away. But it is also a place where the smaller shopping attractions are well worth the visit – don’t ignore them on your next trip to Texas.
