Grapevine is located in northeast Tarrant County, approximately 23 miles northwest of downtown Dallas and 23 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Grapevine's proximity to DFW International Airport, the Los Colinas business center, and both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth is likely to make Grapevine residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
