Location, location, location. Whether you’re raising a family, want to be close (but not too close) to other family, or just need a place to call your own, where you do it makes all the difference.
When it comes to rural charm with urban amenities, Northlake ticks all the boxes. No wonder it was named the fasted growing North Texas city two years in a row!
Conveniently and strategically situated between Fort Worth and Denton, Northlake sits just 24 miles from DFW Airport in southern Denton County. Its easy access to I-35W, Hwy. 114, and Texas Motor Speedway make it a mainline to some of North Texas’ hottest new businesses.
