When folks say everything is bigger in Texas, they aren’t just referring to the size of the steaks you order at restaurants. Much like Dallas, Fort Worth is huge. With a population of nearly one million, Fort Worth is in fourth place for the most populated metropolitan area in the United States. Spanning over 350 square miles, Fort Worth Texas holds the fifth place spot for the largest city in Texas along with the 13th spot for the largest city in the United States. The growth isn’t slowing down in Fort Worth: in the past 20 years the population has nearly doubled.
Building History Day by Day
Established in 1849, the booming city of Fort Worth has been building history for well over a century. Fort Worth’s Stockyards National Historic District pays tribute to the city’s roots with activities that offer entertainment for the whole family. Thanks to the historic Chisholm Trail, many families began working in the cattle industry in the middle of the 19th century. Present day, Fort Worth’s “The Fort Worth Heard” allows visitors to get a taste of the old west with a cattle drive hosted two times per day. Other historical attractions include Stockyards Museum, Stockyards Championship Rodeo, and Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.
Upholding Tradition Year Around
Throughout the year, Fort Worth hosts events of all kinds. Beginning in the middle of January and running to the beginning of February, Fort Worth kicks off the new year with the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. In the Spring, the city hosts the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival, Fort Worth Opera Festival, and Food + Wine Festival. The summer marks the start of many of the city’s annual traditions, including National Day of the American Cowboy, NASCAR All-Star Race, Mayfest, Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Charles Schwab Challenge, Juneteenth, Fort Worth Fourth, and Rockin’ the River. In the Fall, Fort Worth hosts Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show, Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering and Western Swing Fest, Lone Star Film Festival, and Tarrant County Harambee Festival. Though things tend to slow down during the winter, Fort Worth holds the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl every December.
When Big Injuries Create Big Bills
In Fort Worth, big injuries don’t have to mean big expenses. If you have been injured due to another person’s negligence, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you. It isn’t uncommon for people to be unable to pay all of their medical expenses after they’ve been injured. Additionally, many injured people suffer from loss of income, loss of earning potential, and even emotional distress. Though a lot of people have insurance, the offers from the insurance companies aren’t usually enough to cover every injury related expense. Unfortunately, insurance companies may deny claims in bad faith or pressure injured parties into accepting a lower offer.
