I can agree with that! Fort Worth is a great city - one of the absolute best. Tulsa, another favorite of mine is on that list..

Default Fort Worth, most liveable? Hummm.

If landing a good paying job is one component of 'America's Most Liveable Communities' than Fort Worth is not one of those communities.
People are not very friendly, and they still discriminate based upon color, and national origin.
Fort Worth needs more time to evolve into a truly welcoming community in order for it be classified as one of "America's Most Livable Communities."

That is your opinion--but it is only one person's

While I do feel that Fort Worth is very livable (at least in the central city; the sprawled-out outskirts are another story) I do think that a lot of discrimination issues need to be worked on first. I experience a fair bit of it too. As for the quote, discrimination is a matter of fact, not opinion--it goes on every day.

However, I do like the atmosphere of the city. There are some very aesthetically pleasing neighborhoods (Fairmount and Ryan Place come to mind), and a variety of awesome restaurants. There is a rapidly growing cycling infrastructure, like the Trinity Trails and the new bike lanes in the Near Southside. I like the weather here, also--never gets boring! There are very few areas in which I feel really unsafe.

One thing that does bug me, however, is that I wish the city was denser in the inner core. Fort Worth does have a little bit of a "spreading" problem. But then again, what modern city doesn't? Also, transit could use some improvements, starting with real bus schedules on Sundays...

I hate it when Fort Worth and other North Texas cities make lists like these. This area is growing too fast as it is. Let's not persuade more people to flood the area. (No offense to transplants. )

DFW is very liveable especially if a person knows how to live within their means.....

It's also very livable to New Yorkers unable to live within their means.

I have discovered a whole new distraction/addiction/vice -- 'apartment porn.' (Websites and brochures and so on describing DFW's rental housing. I have to make sure I don't drool.)

$600/mo. here may rent one a parking space.
