Bedford: The Perfect Suburb

Bedford is a suburban city located in the "Mid-Cities" area between Dallas and Fort Worth, which is bisected by State Highway 121. Between 1970 and 1990, the small suburb quadrupled in size to 44,000 residents and 400 businesses. Art, music, and culture are alive and well in the city of Bedford. Citizens can enjoy an art gallery, historic sites, outdoor music performances, and live theatre. There are a variety of classes and programs for all ages at the new Bedford Library and the Bedford Boys Ranch Activity Center. Bedford also hosts a multitude of seasonal events for the kids such as our Christmas Tree Lighting in the beginning of December which includes a hayride and a visit from Ol' Saint Nick himself; the Easter Egg Celebration in spring with its arts & craft project, a picture with the Easter Bunny, and a Easter Egg Hunt that includes over 8,500 eggs; and finally, there is HalloweenFest at the Boys Ranch Activity Center where you can have your face painted, enjoy a bounce house, and trick-or-treat at candy stations! With all these activities, it's easy to see that Bedford is the perfect place to raise your family!
