Wimbledon Park is a neighborhood park in South Arlington that is ideal for families, small groups, or individuals. At about 15 acres, it’s not too big and not too small. It’s a pleasant place for a quiet walk.
It’s been a challenging week in Texas, filled with snow, ice, record-low temperatures, power outages, abundance, scarcity, and uncertainty. The worst of it is over, but we’re far from back to normal. Texas doesn’t usually get weather like this — it seems to happen every 5 years or so — but this time was different.
One of my favorite local restaurants is Campo Verde. It’s a local icon and only a few months younger than me. It opened its doors on July 10, 1983.
Somewhere between a dive bar and Tex-Mex diner lies Campo Verde. It’s a fun place for Tex-Mex food. Let’s check it out.
Al’s Hamburgers opened in 1957. It’s an Arlington icon. With a menu that likely hasn’t changed much over the years, this old-school, family-owned restaurant serves up classic burgers in a surprisingly modern setting. My wife and I recently made our first trip there and will be going back soon. Let’s check out Al’s Hamburgers.
One of the oldest restaurants in Arlington is the Candlelite Inn. It opened in 1957 with a simple menu — tacos, pizza, beer, and soft drinks. Early clientele likely included workers from the nearby General Motors plant, which is still a fixture of Arlington. Today, the restaurant is known for its eclectic menu and ambiance from a by-gone era. My wife and I recently made our first visit to the Candlelite Inn. Yes, I’m ashamed to say that we have never been. Spoiler alert: We loved it and will definitely be going back! Let’s check it out.
