Growing up in a smallish town, there will always be part of you that yearns for the nostalgia and hopes things never change. But that's just not life. Towns grow, amenities are added, and change is inevitable. As a Realtor®, I always want to bring the most bang for the buck to my clients. (And that applies to finding the best towns for them to live in!). Welcome to Weatherford. A town that serves as a county seat, has all the modern day appeals, and a healthy dose of the small town charm of yester-year. Situated about 30 minutes West of Fort Worth, my hometown can provide you with options to get away from it all, and still have a manageable commute (if you work in the "big city").
But Michele, your title said "tech"? Well, our amazing team at City Hall has worked earnestly in the recent years to advance the tech available to our residents. Here is a snapshot of what they offer:
Experience Weatherford (website)- This site is updated DAILY with all the goings-on in town, eats, events, etc. Did you know we are the Cutting Horse Capital of the World and the Peach Capital of Texas? Find out more at the link.
Weatherford Eats App (link to the apps)- (formerly the experience weatherford app) App available on iTunes and GooglePlay. This app highlights places to eat, their hours, links, COVID-19 updates to restaurant availability and anything delivery related. If it's about food in Weatherford, it's probably on the app!
