What's great about Weatherford, Texas

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Judge Fite Company

I recently moved from Arlington to Weatherford, a town 30 miles west of downtown Fort Worth.  It's what I consider a small town with a population of approximately 28,000, and I love it!  The people here are so friendly and my teenage daughter almost always sees a friend from school when we are out and about.

Since I enjoy living in Weatherford, I wanted to share my top 5 reasons I love this town.

  1. The small town feel with some comforts of a larger city.  There's a lot of shopping and good restaurants here to enjoy.  Some of the shops are trendy boutiques which are great when trying to find the prefect gift for someone special.
  2. If you work or play in Fort Worth the commute from Weatherford is around 30 minutes which is great.  You can live in a smaller town but be in the city in a flash.
  3. Weatherford ISD is rated "Recognized" for the third year in a row by TEA.  The school district has 7 elementary and 2 middle schools, a 9th grade center and an awesome high school. Go Roos!!
  4. If you have children, the parks here are great.  The city has 9 parks with Cherry Park being our favorite. Nothing beats a nice spring day playing with the kids in the park or splashing around at the city pool in the summer.
  5. Then there is Weatherford College where you can pick from over 35 areas of study or 19 professional/technical programs, take some basic classes or complete some continuing education courses.  Take your pick, Weatherford College has a lot to offer.

Obviously there are many more great things about Weatherford however I wanted to give just a few so you can visit and see for yourself.

Stacey, I have been to Weatherford many times, and even sold a few new homes there.  What a wonderful area.  And... if you find just the right horse... your miles-per-gallon will be much better than with a car.  Best of luck to you from a Fort Worthian.

Thanks Karen! This was a great move for me, I love the feeling it gives me living here.

PS This was officially my first blog and I held it in draft form for several days...I finally got the nerve to set it free. Lol

Stacy, Weatherford sounds wonderful!  It sounds similar to my town of Spring here in the Houston area.  Although Spring is not really a town but an area but it is an area with a small town feel.

Hi Stacey,  Weatherford is a great town.  It has really grown in recent years.  I am from that area and I remember when it was smaller than Mineral Wells.  Not so today :)

Marchel - I've been to Spring before, I have family that live there and I always enjoy going for a visit.

Maggie - Thanks!

Ricki- I hope it doesn't grow too much but I've read articles saying they anticipate huge growth over the next 15-20 years.  I've also read there have been investors working on a deal to refurbish the Baker in Mineral Wells, that would be a great thing for the city and local economy.

Stacey, I know exactly what you mean about holding your first blog post in draft.  Remembering my first blog post... I thought about it and thought about it... I wanted it to be "perfect"... whatever that meant.  Finally, I just put my finger on the submit button, closed my eyes, and let it go.

Gradually and you become more consistent and confident... you will relax, and this will seem much more natural to you.  And... what do you write about ?  Just about anything that pertains to either real estate... or people.  Which means... just about anything.

By the way... I am just down the road in Fort Worth... so I you'd like some help on anything Active Rain'ish... let me know.

Stacey, I love the profile and mental picture you created of Weatherford, TX.  The Weatherford courthouse is one of the most architecturally interesting buildings of its kind.  Great photo!
