Northeast Tarrant County

Living in Northeast Tarrant county means you are just minutes from DFW International Airport and includes a diverse group of communities.  Westlake, Southlake, Keller, Colleyville, and Trophy Club are a cluster of affluent suburbs northeast of Fort Worth. They often appear on lists of the best places to live. Southlake is popular with executives relocating to the Dallas Region where the city is the hub for shopping, dining, and entertainment, and schools here are excellent.

Nearby Grapevine is the oldest city in Tarrant County. Its unofficial motto is “Let Us Entertain You,” and with Grapevine Mills Mall; the Gaylord Texan Resort; Sea Life Grapevine Aquarium; the Great Wolf Lodge; Grapevine Lake, and many annual festivals and events. Home prices here are modest compared to Southlake. And they are more modest still in the Mid-Cities area, which comprises Hurst-Euless-Bedford (or HEB for short).
