    Arlington Reviews

    The city and its schools are safe. As a product of graduating its schooling system, I may confirm that there is literally no tolerance for the compromise of personal along with others' safety and well being. One word to describe my experience: community. If you have even a seed of constructive initiative, you will have no problem acclimating and others will return the favour. When I muse about Tennesseeans being volunteers, Arlington has more than converted me. At this time it is still developing, but at its current trajectory, there are no doubts in my heart of its fruitfulness. Are you a Tennesseean?
    Review Arlington
    Arlington is a great place to live, since its in the suburbs of Memphis. We have just enough local restaurants to visit from Chinese to American. We have a great historic downtown that's great for walking, shopping and much more. Our schools are top of the class with lots of after school programs the kids can participate in. We also have a variety of medical offices to accommodate your needs.
    I have grown up here and it is a wonderful place to live. I went to high school here and loved the small town feel. I recently moved back after college and still love connecting to the friends and family I have known for years. There's a cute little downtown area with a depot square, an old fashioned hardware and general store, and many modern shops and boutiques. It's the perfect mix of historic and up to date.
