“This bustling metropolis may be best known for its world-class sports teams, but it wasn’t always that way. Throughout its more than 150 years of history, Arlington has been everything from a frontier outpost and agricultural center to a college town. It was also home to a horse racing track and a casino that operated (illegally) from the 1920’s until the late 1940’s, earning it the name “Vegas Before Vegas.” You can see this part of Arlington’s history by going on a guided tour at Top O’ Hill Terrace, where you can see some of the original structures and the tunnel used by patrons to evade authorities.” Experience Arlington as it once was and get swept away with your sweetheart.
