I have lived in Arlington, Massachusetts almost all my life. I moved there with my parents when I was just 6 years old, since then I have fallen in love with the city and it's calm and cool seasons and fresh look. When many people think of Massachusetts, they only think of Harvard, but there is much more to the state and its cities. Arlington is a cozy, but yet broad city that has a wide variety of things to view. For example, Arlington's attractions, nightlife, shopping centers, restaurants, and communities are definitely some things to look out for when visiting the beautiful and placid city. Most of Arlington's attractions are very historic, which is what makes the town so educational, but fascinating and fun. One of my favorite and most popular historic attractions to visit are the Robbins Library, the Henry Swan House, and the Robbins Farm Park. These attractions inform visitors about the history of Arlington, while also allowing them to have fun. Secondly, Arlington's restaurants and extremely exquisite! The cultural variety of Arlington's is amazing! I've been living in Arlington for over 20 years and I've seen many great cultural restaurants. For example, some of the best are La Posada Restaurante, Punjab, and Tango Restaurant. Overall, Arlington has quite a few different and unique restaurants that truly stand out. Any tourist that visits will surely be impressed by the city's variety when it comes to dining. When comes to Arlington's nightlife spot, there's not much to see. Arlington is known for being a quiet and calm town, where not many people go out for some night action. However, one of most popular spots would have to be the Machine Nightclub or the Whiskey Saigon. These places are both rated 4 stars and are known to have people feeling excited and buzzed. Personally, I've never visited these clubs, but I've heard great things about them. Shopping in Arlington isn't all that, but it is surely fun! Arlington's shops are mostly small and old-fashioned. There aren't many flashy and fancy stores besides boutiques. One of the best malls to visit would be the Colonial Shopping Center or Arsenal Mall. Both malls carry great clothing that I'm pretty sure many people would admire. In fact, my favorite mall would be the Arsenal mall. Lastly, the communities of Arlington are cozy, calm, and quiet. There is quite a lot of space for many different communities, so the city is definitely not jumbled up. I love Arlington's communities as there is rarely any noise where I live and everyone is very friendly, supportive, and helpful whenever there is a problem. Overall, Arlington, Massachusetts is a great place to live for those who just want to get away from the noise and want to experience a historic, placid and beautiful trip.
