Request Info

An Arlington reunion means thrill rides, live sports and buckets of fun!

At Six Flags Over Texas, the whole family can play like a kid with stomach-dropping, mega roller coasters, and family-friendly rides and attractions the little ones will love. And right next door you’ll find Hurricane Harbor, the gigantic waterpark that will make cooling off in the summer easy breezy!

When you think of Arlington, you might automatically think of sports, and no visit to Arlington would be complete without a tour of the world-renowned AT&T Stadium. Obviously, a total bucket list item for a true football fan, especially when the tour allows you to step foot on the turf field. Even if you’re not a die-hard fan, AT&T Stadium doubles as a world-class gallery with incredible pieces of art to take in, making it a great option for an educational stop.

Pop across the street to visit another must-see venue, Globe Life Field, which is the mesmerizing new home of the Texas Rangers. 2022 is the 50th Anniversary season of the Rangers, so grab tickets, kick back with a hot dog, and “root, root, root!” for the home team. (Extra points if you sing that out loud!) Bonus, you won’t have to worry about a rained-out game with Globe Life Field’s impressive retractable roof.
