I do not understand this rating. Fort Worth's downtown is better than some other places. #1? No. Way. The other cities on the list are mostly a lot smaller and I can't believe that Fort Worth would ever beat out a place like Portland, OR which, outside of cities I've been in in Europe, has the most excellent downtown quality of life I've seen for a mid-size city. I don't understand how they arrived at this. I live downtown FW currently and it's fine. It's not #1.

I know Super Target is there at Montgomery Plaza- but other than that is there all of a sudden a grocery store I don't know about? Not to mention the lack of quality schools for children! Maybe they meant liveable for people with no children... Oh, and don't forget lots of $$$. My sister's rent on her teensy apt was $1100/ mo 2 yrs ago! I like the area but not sure about this.

... I think you're talking about West 7th. NOT Downtown.

But that's what I'm saying- there is no grocery store servicing this area UNLESS you count the Super Target at Montgomery Plaza which isn't technically "Downtown". I have lived in or near FW my whole life. Have watched all the resurgence happen since Sundance Square became a cool, safe place to hang out during my high school years - and I think it's great, but maybe I have a different definition of "liveable."
