Arlington Introduction

Strap in for the ride of your life in Arlington, Texas, where you’ll find southern hospitality combined with the most thrilling family entertainment in the Lone Star State. Home to the University of Texas at Arlington, the city’s old-style architecture give it the appearance of a sleepy college town, with 1 big exception—Six Flags Over Texas. The world-famous theme park and its partner water park dazzle visitors year-round, the ideal recipe for a knockout family vacation. If high-octane action isn’t your speed, there are plenty of alternatives in the rich cultural center of Arlington, from museums and art galleries, to outdoor concerts under the Texan stars.

Hotels in Arlington

Travelers looking for top-value Arlington hotel deals won’t be disappointed. Prices in the city vary, but high-quality, comfortable accommodation is a guarantee so it’s just a matter of choosing the right location. There are options in almost every corner of the city so pick the spot closest to the key sights, or get a discount on a motel near the highway. Local businesses understand the importance of Six Flags so family-friendly favorites are everywhere, while many also offer business facilities to serve the area’s commercial sector. Wherever you choose, you’ll get the best bargain on Arlington hotel rates if you book early.

Where to stay

Whether you’re traveling with children, or seeking some adventure of your own, staying near Six Flags can often be the most convenient choice. You’ll have easy access to the main attraction but expect to part with a little extra cash for the luxury. If you’re looking for budget options, there are a number near the AT&T Stadium and you’ll still be a stone’s throw from the popular theme parks. If hotels in Arlington’s city center seem too pricey, stay along TX-360 highway, where you’ll see everything from name brands to cheap but cozy motels, all a few minutes’ drive from the city’s most celebrated sights.

Things to see

Feel your heart beating through your chest as you whizz down some of the most exhilarating roller coasters in the country at Six Flags Over Texas. There are rides for all ages, as well as funky live entertainment and some top-notch restaurants, the perfect day out for the whole family. The Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park also boasts an enviable array of attractions to please adrenaline junkies. After a fun-filled day, unwind at the Levitt Pavilion Arlington where 50 free outdoor concerts are held every year. A family movie night under the stars is just the ticket to cap off the excitement. You’ll find thrills of a different kind at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, where engaging exhibitions and interactive galleries provide a stimulating education for learners of all ages. Visitors during the holiday season should spare a few hours for the city’s German-style Christmas market, the Texas Christkindl Market, for a splash of festive cheer.
