Bedford is a quality residential community balanced with an environment for planned economic vitality. Located in the middle of the DFW metroplex, only 15 miles from downtown Fort Worth and 20 miles from downtown Dallas. It is a suburb of Fort Worth. Bedford is part of the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District. Prominent highways include State Highway 121 and State Highway 183, also known as Airport Freeway (a reference to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, so called because this was the main thoroughfare to the airport in the early years of its history).
Art, music & culture are alive and well in the City of Bedford. Citizens and visitors can enjoy an art gallery, historic sites, outdoor music performances and live theater. There are a variety of classes and programs for all ages at our new Bedford Library and the Bedford Boys Ranch Activity Center. All this plus outdoor festivals and plenty of green space within a short walk from the main municipal complex.
