Arlington Reviews

Typical small-town in the midwest. People are friendly and willing to help strangers. But there exists a type of double-edged sword. Sometimes when you're from this town, people think they know you. Making change hard. Overall, however, Arlington is a great town to raise kids, work and make lasting relationships with your neighbors and community members.
Review Arlington
I see police all the time driving around. They definitely are around. They are very responsive too. They do what they can to make us feel safe. There is some crime but not where murders or shootings are happening everyday.
The only decent place we have is Applebee's. We need more food here besides fast food.
