Arlington

3.9
The popular saying goes, "Everything's bigger in Texas!" and Arlington exemplifies that maxim. The city's main attractions are the massive and very modern stadiums of the Dallas Cowboys football franchise and the Texas Rangers baseball club, plus a couple of expansive amusement parks. Arlington is a relatively new city, transforming from a small town of less than 8,000 residents in 1950 into an urban center with more than 350,000 denizens today. The growth of entertainment options has naturally accompanied the growth in population, and the city now offers museums, galleries, theaters, and lively bars and nightclubs. Arlington is in Texas (TX). Use our custom trip planner: Arlington and all its delights await.

A few additional hotels surround the Dallas Cowboys' stadium. Options remain limited downtown, but this isn’t surprising since Six Flags draws much of Arlington's tourism.
