Father’s Day: things to do in Arlington

Everyone has something special they like to do for Father’s Day, whether it’s a big family celebration or a relaxing day grilling outside. Things might look a bit different this year due to the current changes and restrictions but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the day. If your dad likes to stay in, is a sports fan, or anything in between, this list has a variety of ideas for the whole family to enjoy.

Unique Activities

Lone Star Axe Throwing is great if you’ve got a competitive dad. It is family-friendly, whether everyone is an adult or if kids are present, they offer drinks and arcade games. They also have coaches that will guide those who have never played. Making a reservation is recommended since the service is first come first serve, but walk-ins are also available. If you’re not familiar with this activity, go check it out and see for yourself!

Stadium Tours

A great summer activity is the stadium tours that are being held by the AT&T Stadium and the new Globe Life Field. One can expect to see everything from jersey displays on the wall to the private suite. Gifts for dad can be purchased in the gift shops to make his day even better. If your dad is a fan of the Texas Rangers or the Dallas Cowboys, this is the next best thing to going to watch a season game.
