Located in northern Texas, Arlington is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and attracts over six million visitors each year. Part of the huge Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, the city of Arlington is known for its sporting events and array of family entertainment and also boasts an impressive range of cultural landmarks, museums, as well as hundreds of restaurants.
Planning your Arlington holidays
With warm, year-round weather, Arlington holidays are enjoyable whenever you choose to go; however, spring's pleasant mid 20's weather is perfect for enjoying the theme parks, exploring the city, or catching a baseball game at Arlington stadium. The peak of summer brings 35 degree weather, though temperatures even higher than that aren't uncommon. Arlington is handily situated just 16 miles from one of the busiest airports in the world - the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport - and can be easily reached within 20 minutes by car. As there is no public transportation in Arlington, visitors will need a car to get around the city, though some hotels do offer shuttles to the major points of interest. Arlington is in the Central Time Zone (GMT-6).
Arlington Holidays: What to do
Arlington holidays have something for everyone, from museums like the UTA Planetarium and Arlington Museum of Art to a variety of fun days out. In particular, the iconic Six Flags Over Texas and its sister waterpark Six Flags Hurricane Harbor have dozens of rides and make for an excellent family day out. During the baseball season you can also find the Texas Rangers playing at Arlington stadium multiple times a week - tickets are both affordable and obtainable, and are a great way to experience a unique atmosphere and top class sporting event up close. To hear some excellent music in an enchanting setting, plan a visit to the Levitt Pavilion, an outdoor theatre that has free music shows under the stars during summer.
