Arlington Promotional Products
Arlington, Texas is a major city located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and, like it's neighboring communities, serves as a center for theme parks, sports teams and Fortune 500 companies, many of which distribute Arlington promotional products.
Arlington at Six Flags over Texas
Located off of I-30 and 360, Six Flags over Texas in Arlington is a major attraction for tourists and locals alike. Six Flags over Texas draws visitors from Grand Prairie, Kennedale, and Pantego, as well as from well beyond Tarrant County, many of whom wear Arlington branded products including t-shirts and sunglasses. The Park opened in 1961 and today is home to 13 roller coasters, including Mr. Freeze, the tallest coaster in Texas. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, located nearby the amusement park in Tarrant County, is another venue that attracts visitors from Dalworthington Gardens, Fort Worth and across Denton County. Although the weather in Texas is fairly moderate throughout the year, Hurricane Harbor receives the most visitors during the summer months, when the heather is often hot and humid. Anyone visiting the park, or attending outdoor sports games, should protect their skin with waterproof sunscreen, custom hats, and other practical items for a day of fun in Arlington.
Arlington for the Sports Fans
In addition to theme parks, many residents attend sports games throughout Dallas, Fort Worth and Irving, often dressed in apparel imprinted with Arlington team names and logos. In June of 2009, the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium- worth $1.15 billion- opened in Arlington. The Texas Rangers Major League Baseball team also plays in Arlington, Texas. While Cowboys and Rangers games, as well as other professional sports games, have many attendees, nothing compares to the crowds at high schools throughout Tarrant County during Friday night football games. Fans of all ages come out to cheer on high schools in Kennedale, Mansfield and Pantego; they often bring custom spirit accessories such as foam fingers and stadium cups. When crowds aren't showing their support for local teams, they may be spending time in the various parks and recreation areas throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Additionally, Dallas, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie and Arlington are home to some of the top golfing experiences in the country.
Arlington Airlines, Technology, and the Natural Gas Industry
When Tarrant County residents aren't enjoying their free time, they can be found hard at work at organizations throughout Texas. Dallas, in particular, serves as the headquarters for many Fortune 500 companies, particularly those companies in the information technology, transportation, or natural gas industries. Southwest Airlines is headquartered in Dallas, and American Airlines also has a large presence there. These companies, and other organizations throughout Kennedale and Mansfield, can outfit employees in company t-shirts, polo shirts, and other Arlington custom apparel to create a unified look. In addition to the presence of major transportation companies, Dallas County and Tarrant County are also home to Texas Instruments, HP, Dell Services, AT&T, and other technology firms. The natural gas industry also comprises a large part of the economy in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex; natural gas wells can be found throughout Tarrant County and Denton County, including the Barnett Shale in Fort Worth, and ExxonMobil has headquarters in Irving, Texas. To generate consumer goodwill and stand apart from competitors, these companies should consider distributing giveaways branded with their name and logo.
