Irving, Texas has a population of about 216,290 which makes it the 12th-largest city in the state. The city is part of the Dallas metropolitan area, just 12 miles west of Big D.
It’s most famous for being the former home to the Dallas Cowboys from 1971 to 2008. Texas Stadium, the former Cowboys home stadium in Irving was demolished shortly after the team moved to its new home in Arlington.
Although the city no longer is home to the Cowboys, it still holds a lot of history and many residents no longer have to worry about having to pay taxes on the team.
Not only that, but they can also save money on electricity since they can choose the cheapest electricity rates available to them.
