Im looking to be close to the city but with a small town feel, a small town that has its own character and sense of community and that isnt just houses. Is there a place like this around the west side of Ft. Worth? It could be a smaller town or just part of Ft Worth that feels like a smaller town.

How is the west side of Ft Worth as in crime? Is it known to be a decent part of town?

thanks for any answers

Check out the Cultural District. Lots of character, near everything. Downtown, the new West 7th entertainment district , TCU, museums (of course).

Welcome to the City of Fort Worth, Texas

I wouldn't say Burleson has the small town feel really. First off, when going down I-35W from Fort Worth to Burleson, you never leave the city as it all runs together. Second, Burleson has a lot of traffic itself and traffic heading into Fort Worth can be very heavy as people from as far south as Alvarado make that commute.

thanks, that is very informative information, how is traffic in the smaller west side towns of Ft Worth?

and what has caused all of the growth in Burleson and what kind of people are moving there?
