The Twisters star and Native Texan stopped by to show you the most instagrammable spots Arlington has to offer! From the set of Top Gun to the streets of Arlington, it’s obvious Glen knows how to strike a pose. Snap a picture at these spots and don’t forget to share your #NationalSelfieDay pics and tag @visit_arlington


Glen Powell at El Arroyo

El Arroyo 

After a day at the pool, grab a margarita and snap a selfie at El Arroyo’s iconic mural! Embody your inner Channel #1 or Chad Radwell (anyone else bummed that Scream Queens was canceled?!) and spend your Texas summer with a little R&R and some chips and gauc while keeping an eye out for the Red Devil serial killer, of course! 


Glen Powell at Taipo: Behind The Door

Taipo: Behind The Door 

Did you know Arlington has a speakeasy? It may not be the Hard Deck bar from Top Gun, but I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if you and Glen belt out Great Balls of Fire! 


Glen Powell at Mineral Well

Mineral Well Public Plaza 

Texas weather can get the best of us all, so cool off in Downtown’s new Mineral Well Fountain.  Experience some Arlington history and snap some content for the ‘gram – or in Glen’s case a fancy magazine cover story. 

(P.S. please don’t actually get in the fountain!) 


Glen Powell at World of Wonderful Chair

World of Wonderful Chair at Globe Life Field North Plaza 

Before you grab a drink and a bite to eat at Texas Live!, check out this Visit Arlington photo-op! We think this larger-than-life selfie spot is totally out of this world, perfect for astronaut John Glenn, who Powell portrayed in Hidden Figures. 


Glen Powell at River Legacy Park

River Legacy Park 

Just like Glen’s serenity song Unwritten says, “Live your life with arms wide open!” River Legacy Park is the perfect spot to grab some Instagram content, connect with nature, and “feel the rain on your skin!” No one else can feel it for you! 


Glen Powell at Arlington Music Hall

Arlington Music Hall 

You don’t want to pass up a picture in front of the Arlington Music Hall. This iconic music venue has seen some of the greats like Willie Nelson, Wynonna Judd, and coming soon Glen and Brisket! 


Glen Powell at Globe Life Field

Globe Life Field 

When going to a game of our 2023 World Champion Texas Rangers, don‘t forget to snap a selfie outside of gorgeous Globe Life Field. The Rangers have the best fans in the MLB but be on the lookout for some rowdy fans from other teams! Bonus points if you scheme to set up your boss on a baseball game date with your frenemy-turned-lover’s boss ala Set It Up! 


Glen Powell at Dream Sculpture

Dream Sculpture 

Stop by Downtown for Arlington’s most inspirational selfie spot. We’re big advocates for following your dreams! (Unless your dream is to become a hit man like Glen’s character Gary in his latest blockbuster hit…we just can’t condone that.)
