We may be moving to Weatherford this summer. I will be working in west fort worth right off I-30. I heard the commute is about 25 minutes. Is traffic real backed up on I-20 in the morning heading into Fort worth. I read on the Weatherford website that over half the people there work in Fort Worth and Dallas.Is Weatherford considered a suburb? I was really impressed with all the stuff Weatherford has. How are the schools? What are some of the new subdivisions in Weatherford? We were looking at the Choice Homes subdivision, Westover Village Estates. Is that a good subdivision? How big is it? What are the internet service providers in Weatherford? Is there Verizon Fios or AT&T DSL there? I would really appreciate any information on Weatherford, since we dont know much about it.

I just moved out of Weatherford to be closer to downtown fort worth for work, the morning commute is ok unless it rains then your looking at a long back-up into downtown normally it took me 45 minutes to get to work, but when it rains it took over an hour and a half. Weatherford is growing but the road getting to the new shopping areas can be a pain. Downtown weatherford area has DSL and someone told me you can get cable internet too. I lived off hwy 51 about 5 miles north of the courthouse and only could get dial-up. I do miss seeing the stars out at night, not much to see here in the city. I enjoyed me stay in weatherford but im glad im closer to work.

Default Weatherford is growing

Weatherford is a nice area, and growing like crazy. Many new restaurants of the chain variety and new shopping going in everyday. Also new medical buildings etc. I beleive the school district is very good. I recommend moving to the East side of Weatherford to shorten your commute time. You could make it into Fort Worth in 30-40 minutes maybe less. The commute into FW really isn't bad coming from the West side, especially in comparision. There are some developments along Fort Worth Highway, (Rt 180) before you even hit actual "Weatherford Square" which is like the town center.

Good Luck

Fox Hollow Extension is a new nice sub division, homes range from 130K-160K

I spend a good amount of time in Weatherford. My one complaint about the town (and I do mean ONE because I adore the place) is that it is impossible to get onto I-20 from 10am-8pm every day without running into a ridiculous amount of traffic. They have a serious traffic problem in Weatherford that is not being addressed.

We are living in Weatherford and out of almost 15 places that I have lived in my life I LOVE IT!! I live off of 180 toward Mineral Wells and our kids go to Millsap schools but we are still considered Weatherford. We have finally settled down in life and God couldn't have given us a better place to settle. We love it here. We bought a home on one acre that would have cost us well over 300 thousand dollars where we used to come from. Traffic on our side of town is nothing and we can get to I 20 from Bowie and bypass all of the traffic on 51 everyone complains about BUT we don't have to work in fort worth. I don't really care though. I would gladly drive any amount of time to have my children go to the school they are going to and this area still has a really good small town attitude that I love. So far we are really really happy and we are finally glad we are HOME!!
