Fort Worth Charmers
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and Fort Worth boasts five areas that would make even Mr. Rogers want to pick up and move. That's according to apartment search website RentLingo, which created heat maps across the country to determine which local neighborhoods have the most charm.
RentLingo zeroed in on Fort Worth's city center to come up with the five neighborhoods with the most appeal. Using a 100-point system to establish charm levels, the outcome is based on things like how well-liked businesses are in the area, what types of amenities are nearby, and how expensive the neighborhood is.
The five most charming Fort Worth neighborhoods are downtown (81 points), North Side (76), Cultural District (68), TCU (68), and Fairmount (67).
Downtown is a no-brainer, even though it's not considered terribly walkable by some, and North Side is where you'll find the Stockyards along with a collection of touristy Texas-centric shops. The Cultural District is a major draw for locals and visitors like, as it touts a collection of world-class museums and venues in a quaint setting.
TCU and Fairmount, as we've discussed before, are way up there in terms of areas where you want to buy a house. As with most college towns, TCU has an abundance of youth and vibrancy, and Fairmount is where you'll find the largest collection of historic homes in the southwest.
Ultimately inspired by local culture, each of these neighborhoods offers a unique taste of Fort Worth charm. If you’re planning a move sometime soon, reference RentLingo’s charm index heat map before you settle on your next neighborhood.
