Although it is not a mainstream travel destination like many other places, Fort Worth does have its unique attractions. Some say it competes with Dallas, however they are both two completely different cities. This city forms the western part of the Metroplex. Compared to Dallas, it is often seen as "laid back" or even a bit rustic. Yet, this city boasts many museums, parks, and other public places that easily equal other cities of this size.
Fort Worth does have its growing pains as more people move here. The cost of living is fairly low compared to many places and this region is growing very fast. Unfortunately, this brings traffic to many of the highways. Dallas and Houston are often criticized for heavy traffic, however Fort Worth has areas which now rival the traffic jams in those places (hint: avoid Northeast Loop 820 if you can).
