First off, this place is expensive! I was not happy about spending $75 for my family to come to another Ripleys museum. We have been to other locations in other states. With that being said, we actually had a lot of fun! Our favorite was...MoreWe appreciate your review Eaduddell! We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our prices!

"Known As Vegas Before Vegas" Decorative wrought iron gates flanked by native sandstone guard towers lend an aura of mystery of mystery and intrigue to the location of what was in the 1930s and 40s, a gambling ground rich and adventurous, mischievous,famous and infamous.
I would call this a presentation more than a tour. So wasn’t what we expected but still love the history and Vickie the researcher and presenter.
She has dug extensively into the secrets and history of the Top of the Hill hidden casino. She has a few artifacts. Put together a slide show and has a wealth of information to share.
She does take you outside to show where tunnels are believed to be. Show buildings and the old pool.
But as far as seeing any old casino rooms or tunnels.... that isn’t part of the tour which was disappointing. Still.... we were happy to learn the history and impressed with what Vickie has discovered with no financial backing. If resources stepped up and helped.... the tunnels could be dug and discovered. Uncovering part of our history.
I wouldn’t take children to this. You are sitting and in a small room listening to what Vickie has learned and watching her slide show. So unless your child is a history nerd.... leave them at home and come enjoy this yourself.
I hope everyone will spread the word about this hidden piece of history so the right person or company can provide the resources necessary to dig and uncover the tunnels etc.

Yes, it is hot during the summer but there is usually a lovely breeze and the music is different and exciting. You will see bands that you might not even know about , yet have the opportunity to enjoy. And the food trucks give you another type of opportunity to taste different cuisines. Bring your lawn chairs and definitely a blanket or lawn covering, little bugs love this as well and remember this is Texas, the land of the free.

Live Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing. Great Concerts. Year round simulcasting from across the world at Bar & Book. Great venue for group outings, weddings, parties, and outstanding food choices!
Visit Lone Star Park is always a great experience for everybody. If you don't like to bet, just the opportunity to go a an event for the music counts...
One thing I like about it is the free parking... they know you spend money inside anyway. Another cool thing that you can do if you want to me more comfortable is to pay extra for the suite.
Another cool thing is that you can take you own drinks so you can take this whole experience as a family picnic.
Go to the website in order to get more information about the dollar nights and also special events.

Take a tour of the home of the Dallas Cowboys (American) football team.
We took the guided tour at the AT&T stadium (Eric was our guide) and we left the place extremely impressed. The tour starts at the Cowboys store where you can get literally anything you want with the best football team logo. The tour takes approximately 1,5 to 2 hours and opens the doors of the nicest places in there: the Club, the double suite, the cheerleaders locker room, the Cowboys locker room, the press room and, of course, the field itself. The stadium is a masterpiece of the architecture (the largest dome construction in the World) and impresses by the sizes of everything in there!

Located on 1,300 acres next to the Trinity River in the heart of north Arlington. Hiking and biking trails, playground and picnic areas, as well as diverse flora and fauna.
We went there for a walk. We were amazed that the path was paved and the park was well maintained. You are able to bring you dog and there are playgrounds. There were also areas to bbq. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We went to the amazing Little Big Town concert this past weekend with Kacey Musgraves and Midland as the opening acts. It was a sold out event and there was probably not a bad seat to be found in the theater. Parking is a convoluted mess and quite pricey. It was $20 for general ($40 for VIP) and it took over 30 minutes to get out after the concert was over. Drinks are also obscenely overpriced. I spent $20 on a glass (a plastic hurricane actually) of the red blend Menage a Trios. That typically runs around $10 a bottle at Kroger and less at Total Wine. My wife's Diet Coke was $6. Ouch.

Formerly named The Ballpark in Arlington, Ameriquest Field is the home of the Texas Rangers.
Awesome stadium. Not in downtown area like other modern stadiums, but they developed the stadium and area around so as to be aesthetically pleasing. I can't believe I read they area replacing it and it's not even 25 years old, because they want one with a roof. They couldn't have thought of that in 1994? Or are we just going soft?

I've camped here only 1 time before. This year they've added a few more things to do like Kayaking. They have also added more cabins and a lodge for non-tent campers. Great for local camping.
