Arlington & Grand Prairie Area

The halfway point between Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington and Grand Prairie are communities that value both work and play. In Arlington you can see a Texas Rangers game, attend a Dallas Cowboys football game, ride a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas, or shoot down a water flume at Hurricane Harbor. In Grand Prairie, you can also see a show at Verizon Theatre, watch horseracing at Lone Star Park, or look at weird stuff at Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
