Beautiful views of Irving as you go by the canal. Beautiful homes a real nice area. Irving does a great job of keeping the Las Colinas Valley Ranch area looking beautiful.

This canal has been around for and now has more to see from developing real estate around it. Nice little boutique shops and ok food. Great for second or third date for not much money.

Disappointed no one was in the water using the canals. I understand there is a dragon boat festival soon.
