Arlington is not only home to some of the most famous attractions in the Lone Star State, it has a lively Downtown area and cool breweries to boot. 

Arlington sits halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth. The University of Texas at Arlington has a planetarium where you can gaze up at the stars. Or, watch the Texas Rangers or Dallas Cowboys shine during a home game in the AT&T Stadium. Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor waterpark are heaps of fun. Many hotels have a convenient free trolley service to all these hot spots. How good is that!
