Hi everyone. I will be moving to Fort Worth sometime within the next year, but I am not familiar with the city at all. Can anyone offer advice about the nice areas of the city? Here is a little bit about my background and what we are looking for: we currently live in Houston in the Midtown-Montrose area. We are in our late 20's, and work in downtown in professional capacities (oil & gas law). The Midtown area it is close to downtown, and has lots of restaurants, museums, pubs, shopping, and outdoor activities. It has a young professional but laid-back vibe to it. I am looking for something similar in Fort Worth. Initially we will be looking for nice apartments or townhouse/condos. We have no children, so school districts aren't a concern. I would really appreciate any help you can give me - I need to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks!

Check out the 7th Street area - across from Montgomery Plaza. New condos (don't know the name), bars, restaurants, movie theater, shops, fun urban vibe. Next to trinity park (huge greenspace w/duck pond walking, jogging, biking trails etc.) Across the street from Super Target and more upscale shops/bars/restaurants. Minutes to downtown and the cultural district.

West 7th worth looking at for sure. Also look into living downtown; lots of apartments & condos. If you want urban funky, look at the near southside/Fairmount areas (Magnolia between 8th Ave & Hemphill).
