Quality Indoor Fun with the Family in Arlington
Indoor Family Destinations in Arlington
Finding ways to enjoy quality time with the family and kids is hard enough without winter weather coming through. But this can really hinder your good times, if you don’t have a plan in place. Even in North Texas, you’ll find it difficult to navigate outdoor activities throughout the winder, so it’s important to have an arsenal of ideas that keep the family engaged while inside.
If you’re chomping at the bit to get out of the house for good, wholesome fun, consider some of these best places in Arlington to find family friendly activities and events.
The University of Texas at Arlington Planetarium offers fun and education, with exciting presentations about the stars and our solar system, as well as an opportunity to ask questions. There are also featured movies shown in the dome with surround video and surround sound.
