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.

I love the atmosphere and history that Fort Worth has. The Fort Worth Stockyards have so much history and character! The restaurant selection is extremely diverse. You can probably find any type of food you want. You can't go wrong with the barbecue, it's the best! The shopping is also very vast. Downtown Fort Worth is also a must see. The stores and food are also amazing in downtown Fort Worth. Christmas in the Sundance Square is a family favorite for myself. Also tons of shopping and restaurants in Sundance Square. Almost every neighborhood or even every street has a different style. There is definitely something for everybody. You don't have to travel far to find fun for everyone.
I love Fort Worth because it is a nice area with tons of things to do. There are many nice shopping areas, great schools, and very good restaurants. Many new areas are being built that are friendly to everyone. One of my favorite spots to go is 7th street, it has been growing and has many friendly places to visit, shop, and eat! There are many attractions that are for all ages and good for families. The only thing that I would change about Fort Worth is that some of the areas are not the safest and are not as welcoming as others. Although, every city has a "bad part" if one is wanting to move there they can choose which part is most comfortable.
