If two cities were ever more opposite it would be Fort Worth and Dallas, however together they provide the perfect combination of style and arts to please everyone. Fort Worth, also known as "funky town" to the natives, is Dallas' artsy-er half. Here you will almost always find live music downtown in Sundance Square, and artists from all over the south come to set up a stand and sell their creations. The laid back culture and fairly small downtown area allows you to walk from bar to bar and sometimes you will see more people standing around outside the bars listening to the music in the streets. This is what really ives the charm to the city, and is one of the beneifts to Fort Worth that D town can't provide.
To really experience some true Texas country, visit the Fort Worth stock yards, just watch out for the "Cow Patties," or sit on the patio at the famous Joe T. Garcia's Mexican restaurant.

Dallas has many professional sports teams, but Fort Worth has it's own collection of minor league teams.
Fort Worth is my favorite over Dallas. Dallas has traffic jams that get real bad. They have one 4 mile streach on interstate where all the interstates combine for a large mess. One of the interstates jams up and it causes all the interstates to lock up. It seems that none of the interstates are continous where you have to exit to another road then later exit to the same interstate. No thanks to Dallas.
Fort Worth has less traffic, but smaller traffic to jam up for a while.
Fort Worth is much more laid back and a better place to live.
