Looking for apartments in Bedford, TX?
Just 20 minutes away from DFW International Airport lies the city of Bedford, along Airport Freeway, one of the busiest east-west transit corridors in the metroplex. In fact, Airport Freeway is sometimes several highways at once: 183, 121, and even I-820, which sometimes explains the maddening pace of traffic as commuters rush from one side of the metroplex to the other. The cities in between are sometimes a blur.
So much so that Bedford is sometimes referred to collectively as Hurst-Euless-Bedford (HEB), a tri-city cooperative just 18 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and just 23 minutes from Dallas (depending on traffic, of course). Many local residents work at nearby American Airlines or at the airport.
According to the HEB chamber of commerce, "The HEB Independent School District has been named in the top 10 percent of school systems nationwide. HEB ISD students score at the highest, exemplary level in state testing. More than 80 percent of graduating seniors pursue further education. More than 1,200 outstanding teachers serve 19,500 students."
Anyone searching for Bedford apartments will have somewhat fewer choices than elsewhere in the metroplex. Most apartments are traditional two-and three-story ranch-style dwellings, built just after the airport opened in 1974. Many properties date from the 1980s. Some apartments in Bedford, TX, like the Colonial Village at Shoal Creek, offer wraparound balconies on corner apartments. Bedford apartments are mostly clustered along Airport Freeway.
The city has 37 different apartment communities offering 6,759 individual apartment homes for rent. The average rent for apartments in Bedford, TX is $716.
