I live and work in south Fort Worth, more specifically next to the town of Crowley. The schools in this part of Fort Worth are located in the Crowley Independent School District, which is a highly-acclaimed and sought-after school district. I live in a brand new subdivision; moreover, my 1,860 square foot house cost $104,000 last year. All of the houses in my zip code are new and located in the suburbs. The area is safe, low-crime, laid-back, and conveniently located 4 miles west of Interstate 35W and 5 miles south of Interstate 20. The large 4-bedroom 3,200 square foot homes in my subdivision cost $160,000.
If you do not want to actually live within the city limits of Fort Worth, some good suburbs of Fort Worth are Crowley, Burleson, Saginaw, Roanoke, Azle, Benbrook, Watauga, Keller, Hurst, Bedford, Euless, Lake Worth, and Colleyville. Arlington is the nice, mid-sized city located smack dab in between Fort Worth and Dallas.
