Many different kinds of people in many different situations reside in Arlington, from young Mexican gang members to highly wealthy individuals. Arlington is run by a group of corrupt individuals (one former member has been accused of extortion to the amount of 750,000).
The popular degenerate teenage hangout is "McChevron"- a duplex-style business consisting of a McDonalds' and a gas station. Perhaps popular because of its conveniency for smoking a little reefer, "McChevron" has everything your typical stoned adolescent requires- a cigarette shop, easily-stolen beer, and an endless supply of fast food.
There is a large meth problem in Arlington, but an even worse problem in the surrounding towns, such as Granite Falls and Marysville.
Because this area is largely rural, there is an annoying hick problem. It blows.
Despite this, Arlington is an interesting, multifaceted area (with very few things to do though) that leads to a creative adulthood to grow up to.
