I love it here. Lived here from 1960 until 2002, lived in Seattle (hated it) for work, returned in 2015. I coulda kissed the ground when I finally got back.

I grieve for the time I lost living away from Fort Worth, but my retirement increased due to the higher pay in the PNW.

Yes. I think Fort Worth is the most underrated city in Texas. Nationally, FW at 800K isn't impressive due to large city limits and a mostly low density suburban population. The same honestly goes for all of the other TX cities to varying degrees (Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio) as well as many others in the sunbelt.

From what I know of TX, that seems accurate. It has a lot going for it, despite its shortcomings. I thought the mention of the tubing/ concerts on the Trinity was funny, though. I would love it if we had a clean river to float right in town, but there's no way I'm getting in that water!

I thought the list showed good judgement for other states as well.

They're all becoming more like each other. West 7th in Fort Worth is becoming more like Uptown and Downtown Dallas is beginning to improve aka DT. Fort Worth.

He prefers for it to remain preconceived as a suburb to dallas.

I don't understand why people say that either. If Fort Worth truly wants to be recognized as the great independent city that it is it needs to grow up a little. Meaning urbanizing the core to provide a more "Big City" environment. It needs to take off the pull-ups and grow some chin hair. Its already larger than Atlanta but you cant even pay people to believe that. It should create MORE densely populated neighborhoods that resembles a city of 900,000 people not more smaller developments that a suburb of 200,000 would warrant.

Ft Worth isn't even a top 5 suburb of Dallas!

Ft Worth is a cheesy blend of Dallas (pretending to be LA) and "cowboys" that have never actually touched a horse not on display.

Ft Worth isn't bad, but to be a great city...well, you might want to fix some roads, pick up some trash, mow some grass, attract some industry, fix traffic, bulldoze or rehab all business that look like run down "rub and tugs" going into downtown.... You know, take pride in the city.

There are plenty of cities around here that are better than actual Ft Worth. I live in one. My problem with Ft Worth is their Tarrant County taxes. I pay out the nose every year yet Ft Worth/Tarrant doesn't seem interested in doing anything with it.

Here's an idea...instead of begging for respect, earn it. Make the city a place people WANT to live in. Trust me, Ft Worth has plenty of tax dollars to make that a possibility...they just don't have the leadership.

I've asked my mayor plenty of times, how do I get us out of Ft Worth/Tarrant tax district? They are just stealing money and I'm tired of having to drive all the way to Ft Worth every time I get jury duty. Tired of paying for a new alignment because the massive pot holes in the roads are horrible.
