Gotta Check It Out: Weatherford, Texas
The City of Weatherford occupies a territory of approximately 27 square miles. It's located at the intersections of U.S. Highways 180 and 80, about 30 miles west of the City of Fort Worth and approximately 60 miles west of the City of Dallas. Interstate 20 runs along the City's southern boundary and provides major access to Fort Worth and Dallas.
Weatherford is situated such that it has maintained an independent identity from the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, yet its close proximity has had a direct effect. Residents find themselves able to achieve a rural lifestyle without sacrificing the conveniences and labor market of a major metropolitan area. Many Weatherford residents commute into the Metroplex to work.
Much of the City's commercial and industrial growth is directly attributable to its relative location to the Metroplex. The City's major commercial and industrial employers find Weatherford attractive since it offers the advantages of convenient access to the region's major transportation and shipping infrastructure without the disadvantages related to physically locating within a major urban area.
Named by the State Legislature as the Peach Capital of Texas, Weatherford and Parker County growers produce the biggest, sweetest, juiciest peaches in all of Texas. The Peach is celebrated each year at the Parker County Peach Festival, Weatherford's largest one-day event.
"First Monday Trade Days" take place the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday before the first Monday of each month. Hundreds come for antiques, arts, crafts, food, and fun. Finally, one can still enjoy the Farmer's Market located just a block off the town square.
