    Texas Stadium

    by principesa Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The glitter may have worn off Texas Stadium since its 1971 opening, but it remains the shrine of Texas football to this day. When the Cowboys are off the field, the stadium is home to concerts and other events. The public may tour the venue year-round and visit the pro shop, which features Cowboy memorabilia.
    The City of Irving raised money for the construction of Texas Stadium in 1968 by issuing $30 million in bonds. Former Dallas Cowboys owner Clint Murchison broke ground on the $25 million project in January 1969. (Prior to moving to Irving, the Cowboys spent the 1960-71 season at the Cotton Bowl.)

    The stadium has a unique hole in the roof, so fans are sheltered from bad weather, even though the games are played outdoors.

    Las Colinas...The Mustangs

    by Cherie_J Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Early Dallas settlers enjoyed plenty of wild game, and saw plenty of wild horses which were a menace to the fragile early settlement and its crops. These wild 'Mustang' horses were descendants of those brought to America by early Spanish explorers. The Mustangs of Las Colinas sculpture in Las Colinas, near Irving, can often appear to be moving, especially from certain angles and in certain aspects of light. There must be so many ghosts of wild horses in the Dallas area...maybe the sculpted Mustangs are moving.
