Once known as Shelby County’s best-kept secret, Arlington is now the second-fastest growing city in the state of Tennessee, and it’s not hard to see why. With historic places, beautiful parks, and proximity to Memphis, Arlington is a place full of small-town charm with access to big city amenities. Rent an apartment here, and you’ll have the best of both worlds.
Wright Medical Technology is by far the area’s top employer, employing over 1,000 of Arlington area residents, but excellent opportunities exist with many other major area employers, which include companies like Maines, Rich Products, Grisham Corporation, and Allen Steel Products. The Arlington Industrial Park provides many jobs for the area, and the city is conducive to starting your own business, as many businesses in the area can confirm. Nearby colleges and universities include the University of Memphis and Southwest Tennessee Community College, both less than 25 miles from Arlington.
While renting an apartment in Arlington, you’ll enjoy community events like Arlington in April, a celebration of the town and its history, and the Arlington Barbecue Burnout. Take the kids to enjoy the Playground of Dreams, a recently established play area in Arlington, or visit one of the six other parks for recreational opportunities. In the downtown area, you’ll find unique restaurants and shops, like the S.Y. Wilson and Company Market, which was established in 1893. Today, you can visit the market to buy country candy and soft drinks, or to browse through their extensive antique selection. A quaint town within minutes of Memphis, Arlington offers comfortable apartment renting and a friendly atmosphere.
