I have lived in several other states and I will say without a moment of hesitation Fort Worth is my favorite place I have ever lived. I have been here over 30 yrs and to me its home. Yes, there is so much to see and do in Tx. I love it down south going towards to the coast. Some of the small towns are incredible. East Tx has some wonderful bed & breakfast spots and the best antique stores around. Plenty of great German food that direction too.
We have a part of town called the "north side", thats where Billy Bobs is. Its like the old west, they even have staged gun fights. Some of the well known bars have been in movies. Our police dept patrols on horseback down there and in downtown Fort Worth. A friend mine came from Ohio to see me one summer and her & I went to the north side. I thought she was going to crawl out of the sun roof of my car when she saw the cop on the horse, oh the camera went to snapping,lol. We went to Billy Bobs one night for the free dance lessons, she wanted to learn to two step.
I have to say the friendliest people I have ever met has been here. Now, Dallas, thats like a foreign country to us Fort Worth folks,lol. Too big, too commercialized, no deals made with a hand shake, too many without money wanting you to think they have money, then there are the ones with more money than sense. Yep, its foreign country over there,lol.
If you ever set out to travel somewhere I don't think Tx would diappoint you. Just don't show up in July & August, the heat is a killer.......Susie
