Low crime. Great schools with great teachers who get paid well. Plenty of things to do whether it’s night life or family oriented. Cost of living is great.
Restaurants. Lots of great places to eat. Also a lot of places to shop.
I generally love this city but of course it has it faults just like any city in America. The crime depends on where you live, race (yes, I said it!), and the time plus place you decide to visit. North side is the Latino part of town and good for authentic food but not a place to be at night if you are on the lighter side. Some of the border towns like Weatherford, Lake Worth, Azle, or White Settlement give a nice small town country feel. There are always things to do a good places to eat, just ask the locals! On the downside of Fort Worth, the interstate and traffic is horrible but not as bad as Dallas. Pay attention to exits or you might miss yours. You pay change from the I-820 to I-35 be in the far left lane then have to get over 4 lanes to exit in less than 5 minutes! The roads are fast paced and you will be cut off if you are driving too slow. Speeds can go from 60-95 mph within a blink of an eye.
Fort Worth Stockyards are a good place to visit for all ages. At 11am and 4pm you can see the walking of the Longhorns down the center which I feel is enjoyable for all ages even if you are a bunch of 20 somethings looking for a cool local event. It is also the location of Billy Bobs for concerts and a country bar plus there are gift shops and small diners to keep your tummy full.
Crime rate is medium to moderate, depending on the neighborhood depends on how the school rates. North side of Fort Worth the schools are much better as well as West. South and east are very lower class schools. Smaller communities are even better and have many community centers and events.
Lots of small parks that are great to take kids, lots of little snack stands around. Snow Cone city you can basically find a stand on every corner. Quiet
