Watch your speed on the bypass
The 820/20 bypass around the west side of Ft. Worth is real nice. Wide road, lots of lanes, the next thing you know you're going 75 mph.
The thing we have noticed is that almost always we see a heavy police presence on this bypass, often seeing speeders pulled over.
Just set that cruise control to the speed limit and let 'er go.
We saw this particular patrol car just ten minutes later, with a speeder pulled over.

Stay away if it snow's or we have freezing rain
I lived up north for 14 years. People here in Texas cannot seem seem to get adapted to any kind of snow or freezing rain. If you value your vehicle, stay away. If your already here, find a place to hide! Traffic is terrible during this time.
This is not a good time to come unless
You dont mind dealing with unacclimated people who do not know how to drive on ice/snow. Granted, the roads are not bad *yet* but the "Im a Texan, I drive a truck" idiots who refuse to slow down are out in full force today. Plus, one of the major Fort Worth/Dallas highways is closed for major construction, creating another mess. Try back in about a month or so, then the gods of thunder will be here to show you a real sight.
Please don't try to fish the Koi with the poles you see around the Japanese Gardens... they are for drowning purposes only :-)))
When the Fort Worth Herd is trailing up through the Stockyards, make sure you stay on the curb otherwise you will have this lady to deal with. She will quickly direct you back to the pavement.
When an ice storm hits, its best to stay at home. I was always lucky and never had an accident thanks to my learning to drive in the middle of winter in Massachusetts!

Just like any place Fort Worth...
Just like any place Fort Worth has crime but if you stick with the nicer areas you will be alright. Watch out for Tornadoes this is part of Tornado Alley.
