    Fort Worth is really a big...

    by TWAmes Written Aug 26, 2002

    Favorite thing: Fort Worth is really a big small-town. There are only a few localized places of interest such as The Stockyards North of the downtown, The Botanical Gardens and Will Rodger's arena West of downtown, and then the downtown itself. The heart of downtown Fort Woth is called Sundance Square and there are several bars, restaurants, and movie theaters within walking distance of each other. Parking in most downtown areas is completely free in the evenings and weekends, so park anywhere and enjoy walking around the square.

    Fondest memory: There are several lakes in the vicinity of Fort Worth. Some are better than others, but most people enjoy the convenience of Eagle Mountain lake. It's just northwest of the downtown off of HWY 199. If you know someone with a boat like I do, then go tie up with us and enjoy a few beers with the locals.

  • Visit the Fort Worth...

    by kmarie Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Visit the Fort Worth Stockyards, this will take you back to the old west, great night life, great steak restaurants, and even a cattle drive. But don't miss the downtown area, the Bass performance hall is a sight to behold! Also you must visit the Sundance Square area.

    Fondest memory: Inside the Botanical Gardens, there is the Japanese Garden it is absolutely beautiful and so peaceful.

  • The culture

    by 1Nomad Updated Jan 7, 2003

    Favorite thing: When you come to Fort Worth, don't expect the usual. Fort Worth is anything but that. Yea, I'm kinda partial. After all, I grew up here. You can easily spend two weeks here and never do the same thing twice. I tried to give you a take of the Fort Worth area, but with Dallas so close to here, if your not happy with what we have to offer, I'm sure you'll find plenty to do there as well. In Fort Worth, it's like living in the big , not so big city. We have our areas of concern, but overall, you'll find it a great place to be. People in this area are from all over. While growing up, this used to be a town of nothing but Texan's. Now, people have found out what a great place this can be and come from all over. You'll get a different blend of cultures and emotions from every angle. If anything, it's anything but boring. If your planning a trip to this area, drop me a line and I'll see if I can help out.

    Don't listen to people from Dallas

    by aemaya Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: They are so busy telling people that Fort Worth sucks, they never have stopped to reflect that they have never left the ugly, concrete, historyless, plastic city we call Dallas. I can't tell you how many Dallosers I have kidnapped and forced to visit Fort Worth . Once they realize they can see with out squinting through a murky haze, that we have trees, museums, and history, that no one is trying to shoot them on the highway, that we smile, and that it doesn't matter how much money you make here, I can't get them to go home. They want to move in. Luckily hospitality is found in Fort Worth also.

    Fondest memory: The way I felt when I walked into my living room an saw a cloud floating into my apartment. It is difficult to find domestic highrises in Texas. The view is breathtaking. Seeing a cloud in my livingroom was, for lack of better terms, priceless.
