Love Where You Live- An ActiveRain Contest August

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 475.140531

Northwestern UniversityIt is interesting to hear about different parts of the country where others Active Rain members live. This enthusiasm for the area you live in or work really helps in the positive attitude you give off to the people around you as they real and learn about what is offered in the areas you love so much. We are hosting a contest for August called Love Where You Live.

As an example I became an Ambassador to my community Evanston IL. I became an honorary employee to the city of Evanston IL and when I tell people about that it helps me get folks to understand why this town is so great, why people would want to live here and how I am the best choice to help them purchase or sell property locally.

Tell us what is special about your town of community. Give some vital information that people would enjoy reading and add some photos for eye candy and additional appeal.  Describe the local flavor and what is unique about where you life and work. Not only will you get 1,000 points for entering, your blog will attract people to the area and will provide excellent SEO for you. You could help people learn about the community and why they would want to live there.

This will be a fun contest for August and people will enjoy reading about what your community has to offer its residents. We would love you to enter and comment on each other's post, you might find out something you did not know about other parts of the country. Love Where You Live a contest about local communities.

  • To qualify you need to put a link to your contest post in the comment thread below during the contest period. The contest starts August 1 and ends August 31st at 11:59 PDT.

It was a ridiculous month and filled with heartache and worry and I wasn't sure I would get this done.  But it felt important so today I made the time.

Fort Worth Texas - Hidden Gems & Attractions

  I Love Living In Fort Worth Texas


FORT WORTH STOCKYARDS -  A must see!  Everyday at 11:30 & 4:00  Stand along Exchange or grab lunch at one of our amazing restaurants in Stockyard Station. Experience the Cattle Drive as the Herd passes. Shop the stores and ride the Grapevine Vintage Railroad to Grapevine and back.  


Fort Worth Stockyards     

STOCKYARDS CHAMPIONSHIP RODEO - Every Friday and Saturday evening you have the opportunity to watch local Cowboys and Cowgirls compete.  My favorite event is bull riding.  



FORT WORTH WATER GARDENS  - I have visited the Fort Worth Water Gardens many times.  This is a beautiful oasis nestled in downtown, close to the Convention Center.  Looking for a peaceful stroll? Don't miss this attraction.


Water Gardens


FORT WORTH BOTANICAL GARDENS -  One of the most beautiful places you could visit!  Year round this destination will always surprise visitors with vibrant colors, wildflowers  and beautiful gardens.  Check out the calendar of events.  


I have to admit, Fort Worth offers a culturally diverse population.  I'm expecting to see more people moving toward the Fort Worth and surrounding areas.  Our affordable new construction and pre owned housing market is strong.   We are home to many major corporations.  Our economy is hot! 

Weather you're here visiting or thinking about making our neighborhood yours... I know you will find fun activities, beautiful scenery and delicious food.
