Hey all, first post but I've lurked around a bit. I'll be moving from Cincinnati to Fort Worth this summer for work in Haslet. I'm in my mid twenties and would really like to be somewhere with some sort of social scene and a not-unbearable commute. Budget tops out around $1100. I haven't been able to find much solid info on commute times to a spot that far north of downtown, any suggestions? Thanks!

All along 35W you find rather new apartment construction from Western Center to Alliance. 1100 and a 15-30 minute commute will have you very close to shopping and other amenities.

I've heard some good things about Arlington Heights- what would my commute from that area look like?

Horrid. I35W is in the middle of a huge reconstruction project.

The alternative routes are surface streets with lots of potholes and more traffic than they can handle due to people trying to avoid the construction mess.

Honestly, I would say to choose somewhere along I-35 in the Keller/Alliance area to start (maybe a 6 month lease) and then have a look around the area and decide what areas you like and if they are worth the longer commutes. The construction of I-35W is a huge detriment right now to living in Fort Worth (Arlington Heights/West 7th/Downtown). But only you can decide if the extra commute/pain is worth it to you. Grapevine is not a bad suggestion but still a likely 25-30 minute commute I think?

Grapevine would be fine for the commute. It should take 20-30 minutes. I will admit that the social scene isn't very lively except on weekends.

Grapevine Station has 1 bedroom and studio units in your price range.

Haslet means very close to Alliance. Check behind Cabelas on 170 - new apartment construction is going up like crazy and you have a straight stretch into Alliance or Haslet.

Thanks for all the suggestions- I think a six month lease might be the way to go. My shifts won't be traditional 9-5 or anything along those lines, so I'm thinking traffic may be a non-issue for me. Either way you guys have given me some good places to start looking!
