Where in the World is Haslet, Texas?
Most people are at least somewhat familiar with the largest, most recognized cities in Texas. For example, plenty of people have heard of – and even fallen in love with – the Fort Worth area for the city’s perfect blend of sophistication and quiet Texas charm. With the big cities in the DFW metro area seeming to get all the attention, there’s an undercurrent of irresistible energy flowing through the surrounding areas. Not far from Fort Worth you’ll find amazing growing communities that are earning their own accolades – like Haslet, Texas.
At Taylor Morrison, we strive to choose the locations for our communities that we know residents are going to love. That’s why we chose Haslet as home to our new homes in our Caraway community. Let us introduce you to Haslet and show you why you’re going to enjoy the community just as much as we do.
Where Is Haslet, Texas
Haslet, Texas has the odd distinction of being located within two separate counties – Denton and Tarrant. Being just a short 15 miles outside of downtown Fort Worth has made Haslet one of the most attractive communities for professionals that work in the DFW metro area, but want to escape to someplace a little quieter at the end of their workday.
The short distance between Haslet and the business center of Fort Worth make it easy to slip away from the always-on energy of the city and relax into a quiet community that feels thousands of miles removed from the congestion.
For people looking for a community that they can grow with, Haslet offers just the right opportunities. With a growth rate that’s exceeding other communities in the area, Haslet is still relatively small with a population that’s barely scraping the 2,000 mark.
It’s truly a community that you can make your own.
Opportunities in Haslet
We have an endless list of reasons why we’re so enamored with Haslet, but at Taylor Morrison, we’ve discovered that one of the features that new home buyers love most about the area is that they’re not restricting their career opportunities by choosing small town life over big city chaos. Even during the busiest travel times, the relatively short commute between Haslet and the DFW metro area is better than what you’ll find in other growing communities in the area. This is great for professionals in all industries, especially since the Dallas Fort Worth area has a thriving economy and employment market.
Top job opportunities in the Haslet area include:
- Aviation and aerospace, with American Airline, Bell Helicopter and the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Division having facilities close by.
- Careers in both healthcare and education are on the rise in the area as well.
- Major employers like Amazon, General Mills and AT&T in the area.
There’s ample opportunity to find the career of your dreams.

When you head out to spend a leisurely day in the community, you won’t be disappointed in your options.
Thinking about doing a little shopping and then lunch with friends? Haslet has you covered with its unique shops and restaurants that the local rave about – like Lee’s Bar-B-Q, which has a well deserved following.
When you’re in the mood for a day of outdoor exploration, you’ll want to head over to John Gammill Park and the Haslet Community Park. The two recreational areas are connected to each other, and between the two of them, they provide everything you could ever want for enjoying a perfect Texas afternoon. With lots of open space and plenty of shady trees, John Gammill is the place for large gatherings or even a quiet picnic with someone special. Wander next door to the Haslet Community Park, and you’ll find a completely new energy where residents will be enjoying the disc golf course, playing sand volleyball and taking full advantage of the beautiful walking trail. It’s amenities like these that make Haslet stand out as an exceptional small town community.
Haslet is a community that’s perfect in so many ways but doesn’t have a problem hanging back in the shadow of the DFW metro area. It’s perfectly fine being the quiet one that doesn’t like to brag, all the while knowing that the big city has nothing on its charm and livability.
