Is Arlington, TN the Right Hometown for You?

May 31, 2022

When considering a move to the Mid-South, it is difficult to decide which suburb of Memphis is the best place for you and your family.  Could Arlington, TN be the perfect hometown for you?

As one of the fastest growing suburbs of Shelby County, Arlington has the amenities and features most folks are looking for in a small-town setting.  With convenient access to great shopping, dining, and attractions in Memphis, and with beautiful and affordable homes in two Grant neighborhoods, it’s no wonder so many people are choosing Arlington as their home. 

One of the reasons newcomers to the area choose Arlington is for the award-winning school system.  Arlington’s public school system is highly regarded and includes some of the best schools in the Mid-South area. Arlington’s students enjoy the benefits of attending a safe and award-winning public school district which consistently ranks among the highest for test-taking, graduation rates, academic achievement, and athletic performance in Tennessee.  Plus, Arlington’s school system is also a great opportunity for teachers and educators seeking employment. Recently, Arlington Schools were one of only 55 organizations named a Top Workplace in Memphis and the Mid-South by The Commercial Appeal and USA Today Network. Arlington Community Schools also ranked in the top 10 percent of all Top Workplaces nationwide.

Downtown Arlington and many of the community’s neighborhoods are located within just 2-3 miles of the nearest I-40 exit, while convenient access to 385 and Highway 70 also provide various opportunities for commuters to find convenient routes. Due to its proximity to area interstates and highways, most areas of the Memphis metropolitan area can be reached from Arlington in 30 minutes or less.  

While Arlington is convenient enough to the more populated areas of Memphis that commuters still find it a desirable location to raise families and put down roots, it’s also remote enough that it offers the feel of small-town living. Residents enjoy the benefits of having local restaurants, beauty salons, public library, post office, local policy station, senior citizens center, churches, community parks and a historic downtown area.

Yet, the community is quiet. It is not overrun with strip malls or shopping centers, and you’ll still find acres of wooded land and space to explore. Sitting on the outer edge of the Big City, Arlington still offers small town living where neighbors greet neighbors and there are still community celebrations for Christmas, Labor Day, Easter and Fourth of July.
