I love Fort Worth, I moved here approximately 6 years ago and fell in love with the town. The people in Fort Worth are so friendly and inviting. The police department are great protectors, and also so committed to the community. It's rare to find such an amazing community with great neighbors. And don't get me started on the multiple awesome restaurants that are around to visit. There's so many things to do and places to go. Downtown is beautiful at night. The zoo is an awesome experience just because staff there are genuinely polite and welcoming. Hands down it's affordable and a must visit location that should be on your list of places to vacation at!

It's the biggest, small city where you can find anything and everything. There's so many great places to see, eat, and have fun! I've lived here my entire life and I find new and cool places every time. Downtown Fort Worth and the Stockyards are the most famous parts of the city, and definitely the best because of the historic meaning behind them. I've met so many great and friendly people here that will help you get to places and tell you about new places and it amazes me how nice people direct you to the right places you were looking for.
Fort Worth has the safest feeling downtown area that I've ever visited. The real estate here is extremely affordable along with everything else. The commutes can be difficult, longer than many places. If you are moving from LA, the commutes are not too bad though! Fort Worth is completely different from Dallas, even though they are lumped together often. Fort Worth feels more western (think cowboy boots and rodeo) and Dallas feels more metropolitan. That also may just be my opinion. I love both cities, but they are just different from one another.
