    Roller Skating

    by Sweetberry1 Updated Oct 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rollerskating used to be a passion of mine, so when I heard that there was a skating rink not too far from where I was staying, I had to check it out..And YES, I could still do it..;-)
    I guess it is like riding a bike.. some things you just don't forget.

    Equipment: Rollerskates... you can bring your own, or hire at the skating rink.

    Ameriquest Field

    Home of the Texas Rangers. This stadium which was formerly called Arlington Ballpark, cost $191 million and took 23 months to build, it has a capacity for 49,178 people. There is an infield tarp that is mounted on hydraulic lifts and stored below ground level. Outside the park there is the Rangers Walk of Fame where you can read about each team in franchise history on the brick path beneath them.

    Inside the there is a 17,000sqft museum and children’s learning centre and a 4 story office building. The field itself is 22ft below street level so as to avoid summer winds.

    The Cotton Bowl

    Cotton Bowl Stadium was built in 1930 and is the home of the Texas-Oklahoma University game in October of each year. The Dallas Cowboys games were played in the Cotton Bowl until 1971 and SMU's home games were played there too for years but they are now played at Owenby Stadium.

    Frisco - Dr Peppers/Seven Up Ballpark

    by keeweechic Updated May 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The new Dr Pepper/Seven Up Ballpark is the home of the 'Frisco RoughRiders' baseball team. The park opened April 3rd, in time for the 2003 season. The stadium cost $22 million to build. It reminded me more of an English cricket ground with the style of the buildings which is very different to the usual style of American ballparks. Really a very nice venue.

    .

    Equipment: There are 8,800 theatre-style seats in the stadium, while outfield grassy areas can hold another 1,800. There are also 29 private suites. The whole park has been designed really well with plenty of space and lovely landscaping. Plenty of restrooms and concessions stands as well. There is a high-resolution video screen in left-centre field so if you are at a distance, you can see all that is happening up close.

    Texas Stadium

    Texas Stadium was built in 1971 and it has to be one of the ugliest stadium (externally) I have ever seen. It always looks unfinished to me. The stadium is home to the Dallas Cowboys football team – 5 times world champions. Aside from football games, festivals and concerts are also held here. You can take a tour of the complex all year round. The stadium has a unique hole in the roof, so that in bad weather, spectators can be protected from bad weather.

    To fish the Red River below Denison Dam, requires a state license from the appropriate state. Striper can be found around the dam area in 45-50 feet of water.
