We're moving to the DFW area in the next few weeks and we're trying to stay within 15-20 minutes drive time from the airport. Does anyone know what the drive time is from Keller -- Hidden Lakes (or Lantana/Highland Village) during work day traffic? We want to make sure we're not on the road for more than 30 minutes (if that's possible), while still living in an area with good schools. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Keller and Highland Village are both going to be about 25 minutes from DFW. With Keller, it is going to depend on how well you hit the lights on Keller Pkwy. and Southlake Blvd. I know that there is certain times of the day where those lights cause some pretty big back-ups. Might want to take one of the main roads(there is several) that hit 114 so that there isn't any lights.

You might want to consider Grapevine and even Southlake(if you can afford it).

I live in Lantana, and it takes me about 30-35 minutes to get to the airport at off-peak hours.

That will get better once they are done with the construction.

It can take 15-20 minutes to get to the nearest grocery store here. If you will keep your goal to 25-30 minutes all these areas work. Depending on your price range you might include Lewisville, Flower Mound & Southlake.

The closest towns to the airports are Coppell & Grapevine and depending on what your looking for in a home, Valley Ranch and some other parts of Irving like La Villita.

Coppell is probably your best best for consistantly staying in the 15-20min time frame.
Southlake would be very good as well as Grapevine. (grapevine has more traffic than Coppell though)

Keller is 20-30minutes I went yesterday at 8:30 and it took 30minutes to the terminal. 114 always bottlenecks in Grapevine and where 26 feeds into it.
Avoiding 1709 is key, the traffic lights and the traffic in Southlake can really back you up. So getting on 114 as soon as possible is your best bet.

DFW is IN Grapevine, so that is by far the easiest commute. I live there, and most of the people on my street work for American AIrlines. We can be at the terminals in 10 monutes without even getting on the highway!

FLower Mound/Highland VIllage wouldn't be so bad if the construction was finished...it is awful right now!

South Flower Mound will put you about 15 min. to the airport, but Highland Village would be more like 25. There are some great neighborhoods in South Flower Mound so check that out too.

We were looking in Lantana as well for airport commute time. We ended up building in a new area of Trophy Club that is 16 minutes from DFW (w/o traffic). Traffic can change any time from any location I guess so I cannot recommendone over the other. Just remember, the closer to the airport you get, the lower... and louder the planes get.
