Tarrant County is an incredibly safe place to live. There are rare reports of robberies or suspicious activity, and I have not heard of anything beyond a few coyote sightings and one car hijacking in the few years I've lived here. The houses are very pretty and well-built, and one of the best IB-certified school districts is here as well. There are plenty of convenient shops around and several good colleges available.
