The print version of the magazine is to be released later this month and will be distributed via a combination of free outlets around Arlington and surrounding towns and via direct mail. The e-magazine can be viewed and downloaded at

The magazine focuses on the unique features that make Arlington a wonderful place to live and a destination for dining, shopping, arts, culture and outdoor activities.

Feature articles include such topics as "A Day Trip in the Arlington Cultural District," sculptor Cyrus Dallin’s legacy of indigenous allyship and activism, local authors and an in-depth look at the community’s experiences during Covid-19 through a current public-art installation. 

State grant helps

“Earlier this year, the chamber received a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism to develop a tourism-focused website,” said Beth Locke, the chamber’s executive director, in a Sept. 15 news release. “We developed the magazine as a separate but companion vehicle to help promote Arlington businesses and to drive traffic to the website.

"We needed to sell advertising to support the production of the magazine, and 45 advertisers signed on very quickly, which was exciting,” she said. “Their ads appear in both the print magazine and in the e-magazine.

"Viewers of the e-magazine can click on individual ads to view videos and learn more about the businesses.

"We hope that response to the magazine will create a big boost for our businesses as they continue to recover from the pandemic. I think residents and visitors alike will be surprised to learn about our wealth of interesting businesses and attractions.”

The Arlington Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit organization with a volunteer board of directors and more than 225 dues-paying members. 

Chamber's mission

The chamber is dedicated to fostering a strong economic climate in Arlington and advancing the desirability of Arlington as a place to shop, work, live and visit; promoting and supporting member businesses through advocacy, marketing and outreach; assisting members in their professional development by providing education and information; providing opportunities to make business and social connections and build relationships; and creating a collaborative environment among businesses, community and government within the Town of Arlington.
