A local publication has just confirmed what many of us already knew: Fort Worth is the best place to raise a child.
Fort Worth Child magazine called Cowtown the best city or suburb for raising a child in its Best for Families 2015 edition. The magazine said:
“Whether you’re a recent transplant or have lived here your whole life, you know that Fort Worth is gaining a reputation as a family-friendly town. Top-rated elementary, middle and high schools, more than 200 public parks and green spaces, a respectable culinary scene, a rich agriculture and military history and housing costs that haven’t yet spiked have families flocking to Cowtown.”
Other local institutions honored in the Best issue:
- Fort Worth Zoo, best place for an animal encounter.
- Fort Worth Botanical Garden, best place to get outdoors.
- Stockyards Station/Fort Worth Herd, best western experience.
