Outdoor Activities and Destinations in Arlington
With the epic freeze and temperatures that have kept us indoors through the winter, everyone’s gunning to get back out and take advantage of warmer weather. As spring approaches, it’s time to start planning ideas to get your family back in the sun and in nature. To get you started, take a look at some of the best warm outdoor activities and destinations for family fun in Arlington.
Amidst the Arlington Entertainment District you’ll find the freestanding granite sculptures that make up Caelum Moor, comprised of more than 540 tons of granite. The design includes individual monuments ranging in height from eight to thirty feet and bearing their own Celtic names, as well as a park, along Johnson Creek. While having no celestial connection as does Stonehenge in England, the sculptures are fascinating.
