Arlington, Texas's geographical location is perfect for individuals wanting to between Dallas and Fort Worth! Allowing a short drive east or west to either city to find more fun and work. Arlington is well known for being the home of the Texas Rangers Stadium and the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Creating an eventful location filled with countless restaurants and attractions such as Six Flags over Texas and Hurricane Harbor. Since the city has numerous attractions individuals tend to gravitate and spend money in Arlington providing the city with a steady flow of income. Which in turn results in the area being policed and governed properly and efficiently. The neighborhood here is genuinely quiet compared to that of Fort Worth and Dallas, even with all of the traffic from both cities.

I love residing in the Arlington area! I am in the heart of where everything lies. I can easily get to the major highways (360, 30, & 20), I'm in close proximity to major attractions (Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor, AT&T Stadium, Texas Rangers), and I have plenty of variety food options to choose from. I highly recommend Arlington to other families looking for a place to call home in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
Arlington has many activities to do, like eating at restaurants or even going to six flags, hurricane harbor, or places like ifly and urban air. There is a mall and outdoor shopping area! Arlington has a very good education system with many 6A high schools. The best part about Arlington is that we are in the middle of Fort Worth and Dallas, so you can enjoy a night in the city if desired!
