  1. Quick Access to Surrounding Cities – Even if you don’t want to make your home directly in Fort Worth, moving nearby allows you easy access to its charms. The city has a sophisticated highway system that can get you from the outskirts and suburbs to downtown relatively quickly. Plus, the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) is a quick and inexpensive way to get to and from Downtown Fort Worth via other areas in North Texas.
  2. Home of the Stockyards – More than just a venue for show cattle, the Fort Worth Stockyards are iconic. Every year, they play host to numerous events, concerts and festivals that are fun for the whole family. This area is also home to the famous Billy Bob's Texas, "The World's Largest Honky Tonk." With rodeos, cattle drives and year-round historical tours, the fun never stops.
  3. Friendly Atmosphere – Fort Worth is full of southern charm, and you’ll find true hospitality in this part of Texas.
  4. The Fort Worth Zoo – With over 5,000 animals and 64 acres of exhibits, the Fort Worth Zoo is a haven for animal lovers of all ages. It’s one of the top-rated zoos in the world and showcases animals from every corner of the globe.

For a sophisticated night out, the Bass Performance Hall offers world-class performances, and there are always a number of other arts and entertainment events going on.
