Arlington, ? USA

It is summer and that means road trips and travel - visiting friends and family, camping up north, beaching-it down south, or hopping on a plane across the country. So have you ever visited another state or region, tell people you're from Arlington, and they assume an Arlington other than the one here in Massachusetts? It has happened to us more often than you'd think.

Even though we may think of our Arlington as the hub of Boston's metro area, there are seven towns named Arlington in the United States, and each has its own characteristics that make it home (or hub) to the people that live there.

And real estate stats only tell a small part of the story. While it's fun to check out other parts of the country, you won't catch us jumping ship to another Arlington anytime soon. Besides, could you imagine supporting teams other than the Sox, Pats, Celtics, or Bruins?  Me either.
