My 15 years of living in Fort Worth has been amazing! The amount of infrastructure that developed will certainly benefit others who have already lived in Fort Worth. For example, there are an incredible amount of local fast foods or malls that one can apply or search through. Not to mention, there are schools all around, and the environment is family-friendly for any newcomers thinking about living in Fort Worth. From my perspective, the affordability for new houses or apartments is fair, and food can be provided anywhere. Last but not least, safety is ensured, and a wide variety of diversity is included for those who feel uncomfortable with their surroundings. Thus, Fort Worth is an incredible area for one to live in since they provide safety and comfortability for any classes.

Jobs, in all forms are available if you want to work. Politically, folks just want the government to stay out of their business. Biking/walking access could be improved but newer areas are making improvements. Our foodie industry is sizzling! Downtown Fort Worth/7th street is safe, walkable environment with a plethora restaurants/bars, theaters, and museums. Live music, often free, is available throughout the city. Affordability of housing is a huge plus.
Loved living here all my life. I plan on having and raising my family here. What I like best is the mix of different people from different cultures. I went to a 4a high school, here I met most of my long term friends. We would go to the stock show rodeo every year. This is a great place that has a lot of different activities for families, especially in summer. You can go to the local drive in, and things like that. Fort Worth is a very family friendly city that is not afraid of some nightlife on the weekends! As a college town, Forth Worth has everything you need; varying places to study, have fun and live after college! Everyone in Fort Worth is super friendly. It may be a big town population wise, but it has a small town feel.
