The Es­sen­tial Dal­las-Fort Worth

Where magazine turns the big 8-0 this year, so we're cel­e­brat­ing the mile­stone with 80-minute itin­er­ar­ies to North Texas' most-loved lo­cales. In this is­sue, we head half­way be­tween Dal­las and Fort Worth to Ar­ling­ton, a hub for sports and fam­ily fun.

Where Dallas - - EDITOR'S ITINERARY -

Home to both the NFL's Dal­las Cow­boys and the Texas Rangers, this long­time en­ter­tain­ment des­ti­na­tion—newly nick­named "The Amer­i­can Dream City"—is the place to be this sea­son for sports spec­ta­tors, thrill-seek­ers and cul­ture hounds alike.

Usher in the home stretch of base­ball sea­son with a game at Globe Life Park, or take a tour of AT&T Sta­dium be­fore catch­ing a foot­ball game or con­cert at the Texas-sized venue. More ex­cite­ment awaits at the nearby Six Flags Over Texas, where guests can ex­pe­ri­ence a vir­tual real­ity roller coaster or ex­plore the park af­ter dark dur­ing Fright Fest (Sept. 24-Oct. 31).

Fi­nally, stroll around down­town to take in public art in­stal­la­tions (like the 'DREAM' sculp­ture pic­tured), sea­sonal fes­ti­vals and live mu­sic per­for­mances at Le­vitt Pavil­ion.
