Discover the center of the D/FW Metroplex with a visit to Bedford, which sits right in the heart of the area. Just five minutes from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Bedford is the perfect launching pad for your Texas experience. You can head south 12 miles to the new AT&T Stadium, be in downtown Fort Worth in 20 minutes and go east 30 minutes to Dallas. With over 100 restaurants and nine hotels to suit every budget, Bedford is your best bet.
The arts community is constantly expanding in order to offer visitors great cultural and historical experiences. Attend a piano concert by a Van Cliburn Medalist at the Old Bedford School, a beautifully restored 1915 schoolhouse. There’s also the historic Bedford Boys Ranch Park and the Civil War Memorial. In the spring, enjoy Twilight Thursdays, free outdoor concerts at Old Bedford School and 4THFEST at Bedford Boys Ranch. Don’t miss the annual (held on Labor Day weekend) Bedford Blues & BBQ Festival, with national and local blues musicians, the Texas Bar-B-Que Cook Off, local artisans and a children’s area.
