Ripley's Believe It Or Not Wax Museum
Palace of Wax & Ripley's Believe It Or Not! features over 175 realistic characters such as Hollywood stars, favourite storybook characters, heroes and villains from the wild west and famous American figures in history. They were all created by a resident wax artist.
This attraction I later realised...
Lone Star Park
A BEAUTIFUL race park with an even more impressive simultcast building. Prices for food can be a pretty penny but find a night where there are $1 drinks or cheap beer. The night we went even had live music in between the races. As long as you don't gamble away your vacation money then it really is a...
Hurricane Harbor is Texas' largest water recreation park set on almost fifty acres. It features 10 separate entertainment areas which provide games, rides and other activities.
The park also has four full-size volleyball courts, two courts in a waist-deep pool and two 18-hole miniature golf...
Home of the Texas Rangers. This stadium until May 2004 was called the Arlington Ballpark and was built at a cost of $191 million, taking 23 months to build. It t has a capacity for 49,178 people. There is an infield tarp that is mounted on hydraulic lifts and stored below ground level.
1 Review and 351 Opinions I stay here all the time, imho one of the best (though NOT the most expensive) full service hotels...

Schlotzsky's: My Favorite Sandwich
Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it. It's a place where...
Istanbul Grill: Very best Turkish food
We located this lovely restaurant in the southern part of Arlington.It is small but decorated with Mediterranean wall hangings and pictures.Very clean with a friendly owner and staff.The dishes are prepared from fresh ingredients using traditional cooking methods.So far it...
Lebanese Taverna: Actual Lebanese Food
There are several in the area - so a great Leb. Taverna at Tyson's Corner Mall and one in Arlington, just visited the last time. Everything was delicious (except for the Arabic coffee - which they called Turkish coffee, however it wasn't.) Plenty of places in the US have...
Taco Bueno: Best Fast Food
Yes, America is all about fast food. It's cheap, fast, and easy! While in Dallas I always make sure to stop at Taco Bueno!! It is great tex-mex food with a lower price. Although loaded in calories I always save one meal to splurge and this is definitely the one!*No alcohol...
Fogo de Chão: A good Brazilian Steakhouse
Not actually in Arlington, but just about 20 minutes north in the suburb of Addison. Fogo de Chão is an international "chain" now, but if you are a carnivore, you will most likely love this place.All of it is slow roasted meats over flame in the 'gaucho' Churrasco tradition....
Stumpy's Blues Bar: Great music, great people
This bar is usually frequented by biker types, but don't let that frighten you! The atmosphere is really fun, & the crowd is always friendly. This place is also home to the best bartenders in town (Christine, in particular).
Stumpy's: One of My Favorites
Great place to hang out for a couple of drinks or all night. Place caters mostly to a metroplex crowd and is always a good time, whether shooting pool, throwing darts or just talking to whoever happens to be there that night. Service is friendly and quick. Bar also features...
No public transportation!
There is no public transportation system in this town, so I would recommend car rental if you can, because the cost of a taxi cab is astronomical.The closest the city comes to public transport is the use of a trolley system, but it can only be used by patrons of certain...
Arlington is just 15 minutes form Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Take the south airport exit to 360 south. You can get around Arlington's famous 3-square-mile entertainment district by taking the Trolley shuttle which makes stops at Six Flags Over Texas, Hurricane...
We traversed he Arlington bar scene in search of a place to watch my beloved 49ers. We happened upon Ricks Bar and Grill on Cooper. It looks a bit shady on the exterior, but is pretty darn nice inside. The look was the best part of the experience. Upon entering we were...
River Legacy Park
Highly recommended for off-time exercise and stress relief. I love this place. It is a huge (Texas, you know..) park and river walk with beautiful walking nature paths, right smack in the middle of Arlington / Dallas metroplex.You'd think you were in the Texas countryside,...
Lone Star Park Racing Horses
A BEAUTIFUL race park with an even more impressive simultcast building. Prices for food can be a pretty penny but find a night where there are $1 drinks or cheap beer. The night we went even had live music in between the races. As long as you don't gamble away your vacation...
Texas Ranger baseball in one of the new Cathedrals
You have to catch a baseball game at the Ballpark at Arlington, currently called "Ameriquest Field" * Anyway, night games here are great. It's cool yet TX warm in the evening, the park architecture is interesting, you can see well, and the food (vendors and shops) is top...
A pleasant surprise
Arlington is actually a decent place to stay when you're working / doing business in the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metroplex.It's close enough to enjoy all Dallas has to offer, but less traffic and very close / convenient to DFW airport for quick "in&outs."Again, I'm no Arlington...
My first time at Six Flags
My first time at Six Flags over Texas and we happen to strike a lousy day weather-wise. Prior to that day the weather had been up around 30-33C and lovely and sunny. This day was grey and gloomy, windy as anything and the temperature had dropped suddenly to around 18C. No...
