Because of it's geographical layout, you would think that this charming Texas city would always be in the shadows of its famous neighbors. Luckily, the city of Arlington has done a more than admirable job of forging its own identity as a city that is enthusiastic about sports as well as good, clean family fun.
This is where the Texas Rangers Baseball team is based, and the team's home turf, the Rangers Ballpark, attracts visitors year-round who want to see the legendary venue as well as take in a tour of the park and museum. Also, since the Dallas Cowboys have moved into their new Cowboys Stadium just down the road from the Rangers, Arlington is always buzzing about the upcoming big game, no matter what season it might be. Plus, Arlington is also the home of the iconic Six Flags Over Texas, an amusement park that has entertained generations of visitors. It continues to build on its exceptional reputation by adding state-of-the-art rides and interactive attractions that keep visitors coming back for more.
Arlington also prides itself in helping to further the educational aspirations of those who are enrolled at the University of Texas at Arlington, a presence that adds a dimension of youth and vibrancy to this already exciting and spirited city.
