Arlington is often considered the hyphen in the "Dallas-Fort Worth" area. Being next to two popular and prominent cities in Texas has given Arlington much economic success. That being said, Arlington still manages to have its own personality, its own feel. There are many great public and private schools for children to attend, and along with this, many great suburban neighborhoods for families to live in. As for sports, Arlington houses the stadiums for both the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers. Arlington also contains the University of Texas at Arlington, a great place to get a higher education for those who don't want to go too far from home!

Arlington is a wonderful city in Texas. This city has many kind people who are very friendly, even if you just greet them with a simple "hello". I enjoy the countless boba places that are littered across Arlington. If you were to go exploring around Arlington, you would notice there are many different chain restaurants, shopping centers, gas stations all grouped together. This gives you more choices without having to travel much, which is what I love about Arlington! I really enjoy living in Arlington, Texas and would recommend others to join the community.
Arlington is a pretty nice city to live in. Everyone is extremely kind to one another. I've never experienced any terrible encounters. The city itself is pretty clean. Whenever spring and summer comes rolling around, the city seems to come to life. The grass is green as ever. The flowers start blooming. It's a wonderful sight to see. Six Flags is nearby as well and it's fun there! There are a variety of different places to eat here and they're really good and price-friendly!
