What is it? The crème de la crème of Texas theme parks is located in Arlington, halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth.
Why go? Adults and kiddos alike will have a blast at Six Flags Over Texas, a 212-acre wonderland with towering roller coasters and plenty of family-friendly rides and attractions. Just a couple of pro-tips to keep in mind: If you want to take advantage of potential discounts, be sure to call Six Flags before visiting; also, to avoid long lines, plan to visit the park in April or September, when attendance is lightest.
