Hello Everyone!

My name is Tea and my husband and I visited the Fort Worth area two years ago because his mom and stepdad live there. We actually got married and ended up staying there for 3 months and I loved it. Better weather and better atmosphere to raise a family in. We are from Michigan where the jobs are non existent and the weather is so cold!! Anyhow, we each have a son and want a diverse, wholesome place for out children to be raised in and grow up. Along with the normal requirements of good schools and job opportunities. I will be done with my Bachelor's of Health Service Administration in 2011 and my husband is in the heating and cooling field. Any suggestions anyone?

I have no advise but I am looking at the same thing and would love to hear what anyone has to tell you. We also have friends and family in the DFW area and are hoping to find a great area to raise our child. Good schools and home environment are essential! Hope someone will answer you soon

I would encourage you to move down and try to rent someplace for 6 months if possible. Take that time to get to know FW.

West & Southwest FW is very nice. The Keller, North Ft Worth areas are all good. So much of where you will live will depend on where you find jobs. DFW is about 120 miles wide and you don't want to buy a home in FW and find a great job somewhere like Plano.

Even the Mid Cities like Bedford, Euless & Colleyville have great schools and from there you can get all over the metroplex.

There are no easy answers that's why you need to find jobs then decide where you want to live.

Good post but DFW is not anywhere near 120 miles wide! It's more like 60 or 70 if you go from loop 635 of East Dallas to loop 820 (west) than encircles FW.

Basically you are correct. I guess it depends one where you measure.

Still a long ways to travel.
