What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Arlington

There are too many restaurants and not many other businesses besides clothing and retail. My favorite cafe is the Indopak Cafe.

Taco bell and also qt are real close by me so I walk there all the time and eat and meet up with ppl who also live around here

I like that i live so close to restaurants and grocery stores. we also live next to a gas station for convenience

The schools are within our neighborhood, the neighbors all look out for each other, and very little crime.

I live in the suburbs. There's nothing special about it but I wanted to live somewhere with lower crime but even here is pretty crappy.

the only thing unique is we have a lot of trees. other than that it could be anywhere. like that we are not far from the airport and from downtown
