Whether you’re planning a family reunion, a student group trip, or a work retreat, Arlington has the perfect balance of entertainment and convenience. When it comes to group tours, Arlington has a ton to offer, so gather everyone in your crew to make some memories that will last a lifetime.
It’s All About Location
Arlington’s location cannot be beat. At the crossroads of five major highways and only 10 minutes from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), the city’s central location, accessibility, and easy navigability makes it especially appealing to travelers. And with hundreds of hotels to choose from—over 1,500 committable rooms—your group won’t be at a loss for finding the perfect place to relax after an action-packed day of fun and excitement.
Hit it Out of the Park
Sometimes it’s difficult to find activities everyone in a group will love. Luckily, Arlington has something for everyone, so you can rest easy knowing that everything you plan will be a hit.
Of course, Arlington is known as the home of where the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers play. Group tours of AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park are extremely popular and give guests a one-of-a-kind look at these world-class athletic venues. Choose from a Self-Guided Tour, a VIP Tour, and even an Art Tour at AT&T Stadium, all available to large groups; or get a Private Tour just for groups at Globe Life Field.
To get your blood pumping, you can’t miss out on Six Flags Over Texas. Everyone in your group, from kids to kids-at-heart, will be unable to resist the pulse-pounding roller coasters providing the ultimate adrenaline rush.
For a day of sun and splashes, grab everyone and head over to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. Whether you crave the excitement that comes from being whipped around hairpin turns and scream-inducing spirals on thrilling water rides, or you prefer to relax as you cruise down the Lazy River, the options for everyone in your group are endless.
Arlington has a variety of engaging museums, all perfect for group outings. The Arlington Museum of Art is home to thought-provoking exhibits that challenge and provide cultural enrichment for visitors. Tours are provided by a museum docent for certain exhibits for groups of five or more.
For something completely different, schedule a trip to the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame. Here, everyone in your group can learn all about the history of bowling, dating all the way back to ancient Egypt, peruse the hall of fame, and get a new appreciation for the sport.
A Walk in the Woods
For outdoor recreation and education, a visit to River Legacy Parks is a must. This one-of-a-kind nature center located on 1,300 acres along the Trinity River is the epitome of an urban oasis. Discover a variety of ecosystems and countless birds, fish, mammals, and native plants. Self-guided Group Visits are offered for groups of 10 or more. Group Visits must be scheduled by appointment by calling River Legacy Park directly.
