What's to Do and See in Arlington?



The Cowboys Stadium, also known as the AT&T Stadium, is more than the home of the Dallas Cowboys, it's a world of facts and figures about the world's largest domed structure, an art museum, a classroom. The things you can do inside AT&T Stadium are endless, and with AT&T Stadium Tours, you can experience them all.

AT&T Stadium offers tours that will appeal to people of all interests and ages, and tours are available daily. Take an afternoon to throw the ball on the field or admire the works of art displayed throughout the stadium. With AT&T Stadium Tours, there is something for everyone.

Texas Rangers Ballpark

On April 1, 1994, a new era for the Texas Rangers began with the opening of Globe Life Park in Arlington. The beautiful baseball-only facility serves as the centerpiece of a 270-acre complex which solidifies Arlington, Texas as an entertainment giant in the Southwest.

The Fort Worth Stockyards


Step into the West Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry.
