Arlington, TX is located right next to Dallas and is even home to the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium. General Motors produces a lot of its vehicles there, and manufacturing is a big part of the city’s culture. The city itself has a population of just under 400,000 people, and with Dallas’ 1.3 million next door, there’s always something to do for students at one of the many colleges in this Texas city.
