Highlights on the Arlington Area

The locals boast, “Everything’s bigger in Texas,” and you will notice immediately the difference in metroplex living if you are from a more colonial city or a metro area with the traditional European format.  The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is the epitome of pure modern America.  In Arlington, the 50th largest city in the United States, you will find that there is not even a mass transit system or a traditional numbered grid like you are accustomed to in many suburbs or larger cities like New York, Chicago, and Washington. 


Tangled spaghetti bowl highways and long-stretching viaducts pepper the region as frequently as massive skyscrapers and condominium apartment buildings in solitude.  Unlike cities where the core enjoys that feeling of having “everything in one place,” Arlington and surrounding cities foster an environment that allows residents to spread out a little more.  Below you will find a few major highlights about the area that will help make moving to Arlington, TX a little less burdensome for the typical newcomer.
