East of Fort Worth
Strategically located within the center of the DFW Metroplex, Arlington is approximately 15 miles east of downtown Fort Worth and 20 miles west of downtown Dallas and approximately 8 miles from DFW International Airport.
Called by many as the entertainment capital of North Texas, Arlington is most well-known for being home to the ironically named Dallas Cowboys NFL football team and the AT&T Stadium and the Texas Rangers MLB baseball team and Globe Life Park. It’s also known for Six Flags and the water park, Hurricane Harbor. All four of which can be easily accessed right off of I-30.
Another big draw to Arlington is the affordability and variety of housing options in Arlington from apartments, townhomes, condominiums, homes and private gated communities. Convenience to both Fort Worth and Dallas also makes it a popular area for those who enjoy being close to both cities.
