Neighborhood Holiday Diplays
The following areas have been consistently known to have pockets of homes decorated for the holidays.
South Irving/North Grand Prairie Areas
- MacArthur Blvd and Townley Elementary School
- The best decorated homes seem to be located in the Rusdell and Mayleaf neighborhoods.
- Story Rd and Sally B. Elliot Elementary School
- The streats near the school usually have some very nice displays. Several well decorated homes are right along Story above and below Oakdale. Meadow Lark and Willow neighborhoods also contain homes worth noticing.
- Beltline Rd and Oakview Dr
- This is the area just north of the Mobile Home Parks on Shady Grove. Just off of Oakview is a street called Post Oak with displays that are some of the nicest in the area.
North Irving/Valley Ranch/Coppell
- MacArthur Blvd and Avenue of Champions
- Check out the streets of Waters, Cosbie, Donley and Carano for some pretty displays.
- MacArthur Blvd and Condor Dr.
- Northlake Woodlands Subdivision. This small community in Coppell just outside of Irving really has the Christmas Spirit! Almost any street with a bird name (Falcon, Mallard, Crane, Pelican, etc) will be a pleasant experience. Most of the homes here are glowing with a steady stream of holiday lights and inflatables. This is definitely worth making a trip to see.
