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.

Cowtown is an amazing place to grow up in. I have made the memories of a lifetime. From The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo to the beautiful scenery to the World-renown art museums, Bass Hall and various activities. I have loved everything the city has to offer. The land is fertile, the activities are diverse and is very much family- friendly. A really inquisitive factor is the city's cuisine. I suffer with many dietary issues, so having immediate access to edible essentials is a must. The interesting thing about this is the dietary options that are fit for me are very unique. There is much variety to these options from bar-b-que to duck to desserts. I digress, Fort Worth has blessed me beyond measure. Finally, I would definitely recommend any family to live and flourish in one of the best places ever!
Lived in this place my whole life and I have never seen the amount of growth we had in the past three years. Used to be that the only local eats where your stereotypical fast food joints was all that was offered now the alternative is some local joints down on Magnolia street by Baylor Hospital strongly recommend Heim for barbecue fans, for the health concious vegans and vegetarians Spiral Diner is the place to go, you want awesome tacos that differ from the norm go to Torchy's Tacos the Baja shrimp taco is amazing! Want a true authentic taste of Japanese food Shinjuku Station or their Chinese counterpart, Cannon, is another wonderful place to try out. One more place I recommend is Melt an ice cream shop very interesting ice creams that are sure to interest anyone. The best part is that these food places are all on the same street so you can try them all out in one go.
