Tour DFW: Arlington Texas
For the first in our new video series Tour DFW, we take a tour of some of the sites in Arlington, Texas. Arlington has been a hotspot in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for some time as the Texas Rangers’ Rangers Ballpark, Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor are in the heart of the city. With the addition of Cowboys Stadium in 2009, Arlington became a central location for sporting events in DFW.
In the tour we visit the baseball park, the football stadium and Six Flags as expected. However, we also take a quick look at the headquarters of the United States Bowling Congress (USBC), including the International Bowling Museum that locals might not know about in Arlington.
We finish up with a glance at The Arlington Highlands, a shopping and entertainment center that boasts many restaurants and retail stores.
