In a recent article, Money magazine chose the best big cities for each region of the United States. Topping the list for the South was our very own Arlington, Texas.
The magazine’s criteria included cities with a population of 300,000+ which offer all the benefits of living in a big city but also feature things like affordable housing, good schools, low crime rates and strong job growth.
Arlington was chosen because of the many large employers that are located here as well as the job options in nearby cities like Dallas and Fort Worth. With a median home price under $169,000, it is also a very affordable place to live. Arlington is also home to some top-ranked schools making it a good place for young families to settle.
In addition, Arlington is home to four professional sports franchises – the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers, the Dallas Wings and the Dallas Charge – and offers plenty of entertainment in the way of theme parks, museums, music venues, comedy clubs and much more. Money even gave a shout out to Arlington for being the home of the International Bowling Hall of Fame.
