Coming from Houston this place is better. Less humid, less hot, less traffic, less people, way less mosquitoes. There is more community, more architectural preservation, and more cowboys. The food is better. The people are the same, fat. Reduced ignorance and arrogance compared to the rest of the state. Housing costs are the same, as well as food. The trains are noisy at Vickery and Hulen St. I would recommend living a half mile away at least. The homeless stay downtown as street begging is not permitted anywhere. If you're raising a family or looking for a place to retire, I recommend this place. It's low paced and Christian minded. For singles, there is some nightlife at Magnolia St and also West 7th, but I do not know of any nightclubs. If you want Mexican food NOT TexMex, there is a good amount to choose from. If you like coffee, Avoca is a must try. I've found the community to be friendly and old tradition here. Nothing like Houston. You get a few speeders on the freeway, but most traffic is mindful and keeps right. Remember, it's a slow paced city. If you venture to Dallas, it's 40+ miles away btw, you will find crime, traffic, and road rage. Hopefully you dont need to, as Fort Worth has all of the amenities. If you need to travel east, get a toll tag. There are several highways that require it, no coins or cash permitted. Roads are in better condition compared to Houston. There's a pothole only on occasion. As far as weather, its sunny most of the year. It reaches 100 in July, but its not humid. If theres a chance of rain, prepare to stay inside. Thunderstorms here are heavy and dangerous. I haven't seen hail but once in Waco coming up from Austin, although many car bodies here say otherwise. Remember, if a storm can produce hail, it can produce a tornado. I haven't seen a tornado here, but just be mindful. The lightning and wind can get intense, you can witness it the next day with all the downed branches. Flooding doesn't seem to be a problem here water drains away quite well. For the family there's plenty to do. Theres a zoo with historic cabins nearby, annual rodeo, six flags, historic stockyards, botanical gardens, historic theatres, summer fireworks displays. I hear there's a indoor water park being built. A good section of Camp Bowie St is still paved with brick. It used to be called the Bankhead highway. There is an intersection at Camp Bowie and W 7th. It takes 3 minutes or so to get through. Check out the map, you'll see why. For the gearheads, I recommend the car museum in Weatherford. Theres also the Texas Motor Speedway as well as The Motorsport Ranch. The Ranch isnt too family or spectator friendly. It's more of a testing facility.
My family and i are from San Antonio and we are staying here for the summer cause of my husbands job. I cant believe how arrogant people can still be and the rudeness here is unbelievable. We are a hispanic family and unfortunately the majority of people here are white and i thought racism ended long ago but being here the looks and vibes i get are horrible. Walking into places we dont get greeted or just a friendly hello or excuse me is too much i guess. Dont get me wrong this place has nice places to visit and restaurants we dont have back home but i rather have a humble, caring, friendly city then this.
I moved to Fort worh about a year ago from Colorado (big mistake) the are is nice but I'll tell you what to really expect if you plan on living here. Heat. Not regular heat but ungodly heat and humidity. Our apartment is in an upscale area and we are constantly having to deal with wasp nests,spiders (giant ones) and we have personally killed 6 snakes. 4 copperheads and two grey one's that Im not familiar with, As for as the people well without going onto to much detail I'll say that EVERYTHING is bigger in TX. I was a semi driver for many years with about 1/2 million miles under my belt and by far TX has the most arrogant self righteous, me attitude drivers I've ever seen. With a motorcycle rider killed everday. The food is good which explains the size of the people. I do believe TX has some good about it but I'm not staying around long enough to find it.
I lived in Wichita Falls, Texas for most of my life. Whenever I wanted to go shopping and have some good night life, I traveled to Fort Worth, Texas. There was so much I liked about the city. To name a few, I really liked the food and the shopping. They have a pretty decent mall, and a few good outlet malls that were all in my price range. The drive was always gorgeous, lots of open land whenever I went there. It was my home away from home. There is a lot of history in Fort Worth, and its got that old feel to it when you visit. Fort Worth has a lot of Western history, that really just draws you in. The city houses a Forth Worth Museum of Science and History, as well as an Imax theater if you are looking for something truly interesting. Fort Worth is home to five different museums, some dealing with the western side of things. It's a true Cowboy experience!
A few things to look into while you visit are the Stockyards National Historical Exhibit, the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, and the Forth Worth Zoo. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself when you visit this old town. City traffic is a downside to the city, but with so much to do and see you will hardly notice. Spend a day at the zoo, and enjoying the historical district. Then, when you aren't ready to call it a night, travel down to Boogers Red for a cowboy meal with delicious ribs and endless beer. Fort Worth is an incredibly entertaining place to visit, and I recommend it.
I have been to Fort Worth many times. For a year, I attended college in Denton, TX, and I would often take the 30 minute drive down to Fort Worth to participate in the city life. Currently, my father lives in Fort Worth, so I get out there once or twice a year to visit.
Fort Worth a unique city. It's not all that big itself, but it sits right next to Dallas. Together with Dallas and all the surrounding suburbs, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the largest in the nation. What I like most about Fort Worth is gazing into the sky during the night time. If you've ever heard the song "the stars at night, shine big and bright...deep in the heart of Texas", then you'll know what I mean. You can see more stars here than you'll ever see.
The best part about Fort Worth is that it is a fairly accessible city, and Dallas isn't too far away. Most of the unique art,cultural events and attractions happen in Dallas, and you'll be able to get there quickly. At the same time, you won't have to spend your vacation dealing with all the congestion associated with Dallas.
