You’ve all heard of it, even though you probably didn’t realize it. Irving, Texas. Home of the legendary Dallas Cowboys. Oh Ya! That place. Here are 12 signs that you found yourself growing up in the Crooked I.
Dallas Cowboys Stadium
Yes, Jerry moved America’s Team to Arlington (they already have the Texas Rangers), but they will always be from Irving, Texas.
You could play games, watch a movie (kid friendly), eat some questionable pizza, and dine with the fishes in the aquarium tables.
The Grand Movie Theater
Remember getting permission to go see the newest hit movie (Fast & Furious, anyone?) at this theater on the outskirts of Irving?
Watching the Planes Fly Over Out of DFW
Follow that long winding road to the very north end of DFW airport, lay on the hood of the car with your date, and watch the planes glide right over your head.
The River Bottoms
If you played football, soccer, baseball, or cheered for the City of Irving, the Trinity River Bottoms is where you spent game time!
If you begged your parents enough after the big game, you were lucky enough to stop here for some delicious grub!
Irving School Stadium
Home of Irving’s high school Friday Night Lights. You more than likely put some time in at ISS (maybe even the in-school suspension version).
When mom didn’t want to cook, this was your next favorite choice for amazing Italian food.
You went here, you hated to be here, but you couldn’t miss out on missing something happening here.
Elementary field trips to this “amusement park” made the school year so much better.
Six Flags/ Wet N’ Wild
You BEGGED your parents every summer to take you and your friends to one of these fun-filled adventure lands.
State Fair of Texas
If you’re from here, you know what Columbus day really means – School holiday accompanied with a free student ticket to the fair. Fletcher’s corn dogs, cotton candy, and Big Tex (pre-fire).
