Fine dining experiences, entertainment, greenspaces, sporting activities, and good weather are just a few of the aspects locals love about living in Las Colinas.
As part of the Dallas metropolitan area, Las Colinas locals can take advantage of the many great economic and cultural opportunities available in the big city without having to live in the urban center.
Well situated amongst rolling hills and 125-acre Lake Carolyn, a significant amount of the land in Las Colinas is devoted to recreational use and greenways. In fact, Las Colinas boasts having over 190 acres of parks, 50 charming lakes, 17 miles of Venetian canals, and 10 miles of lush hiking and biking trails.
There’s also no shortage of entertainment and social activities to keep the lucky residents of Las Colinas occupied either. Hundreds of restaurants pepper the landscape, giving patrons the chance to sample a wide variety of cuisines within miles of their home, and there is always something going at any one of the several entertainment venues.
It’s no mistake that Las Colinas is in such a convenient geographic location. The community planners recognized the appeal of developing a town that was less than a ten minute drive from both Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) airport and Dallas Love Field. Las Colinas residents can also easily access transportation like the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light-rail and national highways including SH-114, SH-161 and I-635 to get wherever they need to go in a flash.
