Looking for New Adventures to Hashtag? Tag These ‘Gram-Worthy’ Destinations

The best getaways can be found in your own backyard. North Texas is brimming with endless opportunities for a romantic night out or a family fun day. Take advantage of the longer summer days and the President George Bush Turnpike to get you there faster.

Six Flags Over Texas theme park in Arlington has thrill rides and family attractions for everyone. Or perhaps you’d prefer a cooler, wetter excursion. Check out Six Flags Hurricane Harbor waterpark, just across the highway from the theme park. Hurricane Harbor features 50 acres of rides and slides and a 1-million-gallon wave pool.

Another option to escape the soaring temperatures is Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark in Grand Prairie. It’s the largest indoor waterpark in the country with indoor and outdoor fun. The park features a retractable roof, 11 slides, a surf simulator and an outdoor wave pool.

The Bush Turnpike also links you directly to Interstates 20 and 30 for a shortcut to Globe Life Park and AT&T Stadium, as well as many other Arlington and Grand Prairie entertainment destinations.

If you like horse racing, it’s a good bet that Lone Star Park will fit the ticket for summer fun. The park is located a half mile north of I-30 on Belt Line Road in Grand Prairie.

Just south of Lone Star Park on Beltline, Verizon Theatre hosts comedians, concerts and classical performances. The venue has a great lineup for the month of August, including:

  • Delbert McClinton with Joe Ely Band and Casey James
  • Charlie Wilson with Monica and After 7
  • 40 Trips Around the Sun, Toto
  • Lost 80s Live including: A Flock of Seagulls, Wang Chung, Naked Eyes, Missing Persons, Book of Love, Animotion, Gene Loves Jezebel, Boys Don’t Cry, Farrington and Mann, When in Rome UK and Nu Shooz
  • Boz Scaggs, Out of the Blues Tour
