Fort Worth is Texas at its best. From its rough-and-tumble cowboy heritage has evolved a dynamic metropolitan area that is poised for even greater economic and social achievement. While the historic, cultural, and recreational offerings are notable, the city s business development and economic opportunities are equally impressive. Fort Worth: Where the Best Begins tells the story of the city s remarkable growth from army outpost to major cowtown, on to transportation hub and oil center, and then to a high-tech metropolis with a varied economy. Fort Worth continues to evolve, providing growth and employment locally while setting a pace for global business in the 21st century. Each business discussed in this volume is a Texas tale of success of bold thinking and effective implementation, of hard work, smart planning, and getting the job done right. Business-friendly government policies make the Fort Worth area an economic haven. Fort Worth offers an outstanding quality of life. It has affordable housing, good schools, a wide choice of colleges and universities, and excellent, high-tech medical facilities. Among its cultural and recreational pursuits, Fort Worth has a number of world-class museums, an outstanding zoo, and a variety of outdoor opportunities. Sports options range from professional football to fishing in local lakes. Fort Worth honors its western heritage in many ways, from the Stockyards cattle drive and western-themed businesses to cowboy and cowgirl museums. It is truly the best of the West.
