Aledo doesn't offer many amenities compared to surrounding towns near Fort Worth. You'll need drive to Willow Park, Weatherford, or Benbrook for groceries, places to eat, and a good gym. The corrupt City will overcharge you for water (>$500 in the summer months). Suggest buying a property with well water. The schools are good, but the city infrastructure needs major improvements.

I moved to Aledo when I was 2 so I've been here for almost my entire life. I always thought that the community here was good but I never realized just how nice everyone was until my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer this past fall. So many people reached out to help in any way possible and I've been very impressed with our community. From cooking meals to donations, so many people have helped my family through these turbulent times.
Aledo is a small town starting to grow. I love being in a small town so it makes me sad to see it growing but the community is very welcoming. The Aledo community is basically a family, where everyone knows everyone. The community supports the schools and athletics. They expect greatness and nothing less here. Aledo gives every student the opportunity to succeed, failure isn't in Aledo's vocabulary. The academic competitiveness in Aledo is through the roof. A high school GPA of 99 isn't enough to make it in the top 10%. Aledo also excels in sports, to make varsity sports in Aledo you have to be more than decent. There are state championship titles in every sport in this town.
