Yes, the Miss Texas pagaent has a long, storied history of producing well-rounded queens that typically vie for even larger crowns on a regular basis, but let’s face it: This is one place to go where you get to stare at beautiful women and it’s totally cool.

Tonight I took a little drive to Arlington, Texas just to see for myself if it lived up to all the hype.  I mean, sure, Arlington is the home of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Texas Rangers Ballpark and Six Flags Over Texas, but I wanted to know what life in Arlington was like when there isn’t a ballgame or roller coaster on a fellow’s itinerary.  As I neared the area in which Cowboys Stadium and Rangers Ballpark are located, I noticed this really nice townhome complex on The Road to Six Flags St.

Called Chelsea Park Townhomes, I was immediately struck by how close it was to both sports venues.  It was so close, in fact, that people were paying to park in nearby lots to walk to that night’s Rangers game against the Seattle Mariners, a game which the Rangers, sadly, lost 4-2.  I thought to myself about how nice it would be to just be able to go to the ballpark on a Monday night without having to make the baseball game the central part of my day, since this sort of access is usually enjoyed only by Yankees, Red Sox and Cubs fans.

Chelsea Park is located on a piece of prime real estate heading into the 2010-2011 football season.  With the screens on the outside of “Boss Hogg Bowl,” residents could actually watch the games from their rooftop balconies.  Seeing as the complex is only one-half mile away, a resident Cowboys fan would not have to spend hours in traffic, yelling at everyone on the road to get out of the way.  (This, ultimately I suppose, would preserve the aforementioned fan’s voice for when it is needed most, during the game.)  Whether or not the Cowboys make it to the Super Bowl this coming season, Arlington will be the site of one of the biggest sporting events in the world, Super Bowl 2011, and Chelsea Park will be in the middle of all of the action.

Sports not your bag?  The complex’s residents can also walk to shopping and dining areas.  Lincoln Square Shopping Center is located within walking distance and contains restaurants such as Hibachi 97 and Olive Garden.  Retail stores such as Gap, Jones New York and Nine West also call Lincoln Square home.  Nightlife is active as well with establishments such as Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub and Grill and Xtra Innings Sports Bar.

Chelsea Park’s central location acts as a gateway to the conveniences of both Dallas and Ft. Worth.  I-30 is quickly accessed from the townhomes making both cities reachable within 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic.  The complex is also 15 minutes away from DFW International Airport and getting to the airport and back is a breeze, so frequent travelers will really enjoy Chelsea Park.

Chelsea Park Townhomes makes for a great homebase for anyone, be it their first home or a second, home away from home.  The complex is gated and each apartment is pre-wired for an intrusion alarm system so when you’re not there, your place is always protected.

These brownstone-styled townhomes define luxury.  Each unit comes with a 2-car garage with remote, a pre-wired living area with surround sound, European-style concealed hinge cabinetry and granite slab countertops.  The bathrooms are impressive with oval garden tubs and semi-frameless glass shower enclosures.  Upgrades are available such as  jetted tubs in the master bathrooms and pre-wired speakers on roof decks.  The complex also includes courtyards in between the buildings, plenty of green space and, bonus, the townhomes are in close proximity to hiking and bike trails.  While the townhomes are located in a bustling area, these green spaces provide a tranquility to the complex.  Inside the gates of the complex, it is quiet and relaxing.

With its central location, proximity to what is fast becoming the entertainment capital of the DFW area, and luxurious construction and amenities, Chelsea Park Townhomes is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking to move to the great city of Arlington or searching for a second home.
