"The American Dream City"
Today, Arlington is one of the leading cities in the State of Texas. Situated between Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington was primed from the beginning to become, “The American Dream City”.
With an estimated population of 392,772 - Arlington is ranked as the third largest city in the DFW Metroplex. It is also the 48th largest city in the U.S., 7th largest in the State, and Arlington is also the largest city in Texas to not be the county seat.
Arlington is a dynamic community and it is resourced to impact the economic, recreational, construction, educational, scientific, and historical spheres through the area. Home to the University of Texas at Arlington, a General Motors Assembly facility, the Cowboy’s AT&T Football Stadium, the Ranger’s Globe Life Park, Texas Health Resources, D.R. Horton home builders, Six Flags Over Texas, Hurricane Harbor, and the International Bowling Hall of Fame - it is easy to see that Arlington as both the infrastructure and the potential to continue to be a leading city in Texas.
