Cowtown, Panther City, Funkytown or whatever you call it, Fort Worth is the best home town I could ever ask for. What makes Fort Worth so unique is the sense of community the entire city has and how genuinely kind the people are. You will commonly see strangers graciously helping each other. Even the drivers are more considerate than in our sister city of Dallas! I also love Fort Worth for its focus on the arts and activities. With places like the Stockyards, Fort Worth Zoo, Bass Performance Hall, Modern Art Museum, Omni Theater, and Historic Downtown, Fort Worth has many unique options for entertainment for people of all ages!
However, I would like to see the public education system be improved. Currently, Texas has one of the worst public education systems in the entire country despite having many extremely good private and charter schools. I would also like to see more of Historic downtown restored so that the north and northeast part of town carry less of a stigma.

I am born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Ever since 2000, my family and I have never lived in another town other than Fort Worth. I love this city and I love Texas! The fair at the stock yards and the rodeo is so fun, giving family and friends a perfect, safe environment to spend valuable time together. The FWISD is an amazing school district, giving students everything they need to succeed after every level of their education. Everything in Fort Worth, Texas is worth at least visiting for. Get your family and friends and get down here for a time of your life!
I was born and raised here, so I’m biased, but my husband moved here from LA in his teens and loves FW more than I do. You’d be hard-pressed to find a place with the options and cultural diversity of FW that’s also affordable and (according to my husband) peaceful. You can enjoy all Dallas has to offer for the day, and then come home to where things are chill. We’re the only major city in Texas to not yet turn blue, but that will happen within the next 10 years or so. Dems here are proud and vocal. The city is growing fast and there’s always something new to try, but house prices are starting to increase too, so get here as soon as you can!
