Located northeast of and adjacent to Fort Worth, Haltom City is a 20-minute drive from DFW International Airport, and  offers quick access to Interstate 820, SH 121, US Hwy. 377 and SH 26, and I-35W is less than one mile to the west. With such close proximity to DFW Airport, Alliance Airport and Meacham Field, Haltom City is among the leaders in industrial cities.

Haltom City can also lay claim as the founding place of the Northeast Orchestra, a 60-member group that performs five annual concerts featuring classical works. The group represents 16 Tarrant  County  communities and practices in Haltom City. Citizens actively participate in civic events such as National Night Out, and the Haltom City Library and the Haltom City Senior Center have considerable community support.

New home development in Haltom City’s northwest corner is anticipated to bring more citizens to this town of more than 40,000. The Birdville Independent School District serves most of Haltom City, while the Keller Independent School District serves the extreme northwest corner of the city.
