Cowtown has become a cool town, an environmentally conscientious city focused on cowboys, culture, commerce and community. Its accolades include rankings among not only Coolest Cities and Best Downtowns but also Best Big Cities for Jobs and Internships, Fastest Growing Cities, Best Cities for Investing in a Home and Top Commercial Real Estate Markets. Part of the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington Metroplex, it offers affordable living, diversity and an abundance of choices.
Although the heart of the Stockyards is Cowtown Coliseum and its rodeo events, Fort Worth is second only to Washington, D.C., in its number of quality, accredited museums within walking distance of each other. With three aviation museums, a science center, several first-class fine art museums, a top-rated world-class zoo, an annual opera festival, the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and the Texas Ballet, this is indeed a city of culture. It’s also a fit city. BikeFW is a bike-sharing initiative to hopefully triple the number of bicycle commuters. With Japanese, botanical and water gardens and several lakes plus trails for riding, biking, walking and running – don’t forget the Cowtown Marathon in February – outdoor activities are plentiful.
Fort Worth’s primary industry is aerospace and aviation followed by biotechnology and life sciences, health care, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics. AMR Corporation’s American Airlines is headquartered here, and Lockheed-Martin and Bell Helicopter Textron are major employers.
