Come along for the next great adventure in The American Dream City on an all-new series hosted by Mayor Jim Ross titled Explore Arlington.

Explore Arlington will take viewers on a journey across multiple small businesses, tourism destinations, outdoor activities and many other venues and topics highlighting all of the fun things happening in our community.

“There are so many amazing things happening in our community and it’s happening all the time,” said Arlington Mayor Jim Ross. “One of the things I want to do as mayor is highlight all that Arlington has to offer. And I hope that you will help me spread the word.”

The debut adventure of Explore Arlington takes residents and visitors to Globe Life Field, where Mayor Ross takes on the challenge of the annual “dot race” tradition at the ballpark. This tradition actually originated at Arlington Stadium and has spread to other venues around the country, morphing into such races as the Hot Dog Race, the Sausage Race, and the Brat Race.

Explore Arlington joins a host of regular video programming produced by the City of Arlington’s Office of Communications that are intended to showcase the great things happening in the American Dream City,” said Jay Warren, director of Communication and Legislative Affairs for the City of Arlington. “There is a lot to be proud of in Arlington. It’s our job to tell those stories and hopefully, by doing so, continue to build a sense of community pride.”

The first public viewing of Explore Arlington took place at the 2021 State of the City event, hosted by the Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 13, 2021. Mayor Ross discussed a variety of topics, including education, major economic development projects, transportation, public safety and technology initiatives, new amenities that enrich our community, and other milestone moments recently celebrated in The American Dream City.
