5 Reasons We Love Our Hometown

Downtown Fort Worth

The Attitude

No. 1

Worldly, yet humble. Fort Worth has plenty to brag about—but doesn’t. The city vibe is the perfect blend of extraordinarily well done and down home. We love our city’s western heritage and internationally renowned arts scene.

The People

No. 2

It’s consistently warm here, and we don’t just mean the weather. No one does friendly like the people of Fort Worth. Prepare to be spoken to by strangers, because no one stays a stranger long.

The Food

No. 3

The barbecue and Tex-Mex cuisine aren’t just delicious, they’re historic. But that’s just the beginning. Fort Worth’s amazing culinary offerings are varied and sophisticated. (But seriously, you can have your taco Tuesday seven days a week.)

The Access

No. 4

It’s pretty easy to get here, and to get around. Fort Worth is just the right size (the 15th largest city in America), and super accessible. A central hub near America’s fourth busiest airport, we’re smack dab in the middle of the country.

Our Downtown

No. 5

Okay, we can brag just a little: we have the No. 1 downtown in America. This bright spot offers easy parking, performances, dining and great public spaces. Just minutes from campus, it’s where Fort Worth works by day and plays at night.
