Looking for apartments in apartments in Arlington, TX?
Located halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth, within easy commute of both, Arlington, Texas, is not surprisingly the apartment capital of the metroplex.
Arlington started life as open prairie but has morphed into a modern metropolis with a rapidly growing population. Those commuting from one end of the metroplex to the other--four major highways pass through the city--cannot miss the exit signs. To the north and south are I-30 and I-20, respectively; to the east is SH-360 (leading straight up to DFW International Airport); and to the west are highways 287 and East Loop 820. Arlington has no public transportation, so these are the quickest routes to access everything DFW.
Many older apartments can be found along I-30 in the middle of Arlington. (An exception are newer developments joining the Dallas Cowboys stadium/"Three Bridges" project along I-30). Most of the newer apartment communities can be found along N.E. Green Oaks Blvd. in North Arlington and I-20 in South Arlington.
Arlington has been dubbed "fun central" by its tourism office. It is home to numerous attractions that appeal to young and old alike, like Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor; a few minutes down the road is The Palace of Wax and Ripley's Believe It or Not. The 2010 World Series' Texas Rangers slug their way to victory at the Ballpark in Arlington, a 49,000-seat open-air stadium.
For competitive shoppers, there's The Parks at Arlington Mall, Lincoln Square, the Arlington Highlands, or the growing Shoppes at Brownstone Village, which balances box retailers and smaller boutiques.
Arlington is also home to the new $1 billion "Dallas Cowboys" football stadium, site of the 2011 Super Bowl. 73 acres under a retractable roof, the building must be seen to be believed. Visit stadium.dallascowboys.com for a virtual tour.
