2017 Best Dallas suburbs rank: 28

Click this best places to live in Dallas link for complete rankings, metrics and analysis methodology.

Grapevine public schools have the twenty-sixth highest composite STAAR performance index of all Dallas suburbs and its principal high schools, Colleyville Heritage High School and Grapevine High School, rank twelfth and nineteeth among the 2017 best open enrollment high schools in the DFW metroplex. Its prevailing tax rate is in the bottom quartile of property tax rates in the Dallas area. While past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results, the rate of price increases of Grapevine's MLS-listed single-family homes sold during the past three years was in the top quartile of home price appreciation of all Dallas area cities and towns. Some of the ways Grapevine is different from and similar to other DFW cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Grapevine is located in northeast Tarrant County, approximately 23 miles northwest of downtown Dallas and 23 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Grapevine's proximity to DFW International Airport, the Los Colinas business center, and both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth is likely to make Grapevine residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
