A few of our favorite condos and apartments line Lake Carolyn, a trendy man-made lake situated near Highway 114. There’s so much to do and see, and eat around the lake. It’s just nearby the favorite hot-spot Toyota Music Factory and just steps away from the Irving Convention Center. We are often around this area for community events. Just recently, I ran the Irving Marathon 5K which started at Toyota Music Factory, next to the Westin, and wrapped around the lake. It’s an amazing place to enjoy all that Irving/Las Colinas has to offer!
