Arlington Reviews

580 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Arlington
I have been living in Arlington, Texas for roughly four years now. There are plenty of restaurants and places to shop especially in the Highlands- not to mention, if you are looking for a good laugh you might want to swing by the Arlington Comedy Club where they have major headliners each week PLUS a free comedy show each Wednesday night featuring local comedians . Looking to get in shape? Join Fitness Connection or Planet Fitness for only 10 dollars a month- or if you are seeking something more advanced you can get a membership with Title Boxing Club like I did for a little extra! Arlington is also the home of hidden gems such as Jamaica Gates Caribbean Cuisine that serves delicious homemade food with a warm family environment. Housing is reasonable, whether you are looking to buy a home or rent an apartment- there are plenty of option available including the beautiful Maverick Place Apartments for college students.
I lived in Arlington for 17 years. My best friends still live there. My three sons grew up there. We only moved because of employment. Arlington is between Fort Worth and Dallas so you can enjoy everything in both cities--shopping, dining, plays, opera, hockey, soccer and the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers have stadiums there. Fort Worth and Dallas both have excellent zoos. Six Flags over Texas and Hurricane Harbor are there. Oh yes, we can't forget the Texas State Fair. What is there not to like!
