Our family is moving to the Arlington area this summer (pending acceptance to a private, Christian school in Arlington). We plan on renting for a year to get a 'feel' for the area. Originally, I chose Grapevine but have been informed by a realtor that commuting to Arlington from Grapevine would be rough. I am looking for a safe, family friendly neighborhood with a strong sense of community. We could spend up to 2k a month for rent, but would eventually hope to buy in the area (or surrounding area) for about 250k. We have 3 children. I truly appreciate any help as I want to narrow down where we visit when we come down in the next month or so. Thank you!!

I honestly don't know why a realtor told you that commute would be "rough." It's actually not bad at all, especially if you live in the part of Grapevine that's south of 114. It's a straight drive down 360, and you would be going against traffic. I made this drive about 5 years ago, and it only took 20 minutes unless there was a wreck or bad weather. The highway construction in Grapevine is almost completed, and won't be an issue after this fall.

For what you are looking for, Grapevine has it all. I will warn you that the rental and sale market here moves very quickly in your price range, so you will need a good realtor who knows the area and can show you listings the day they pop up, if not before.
