Weatherford: Serene and Suburban
Weatherford is located in Parker County, Texas. Settled west of Fort Worth, the city combines suburban comfort and country living, which will appeal to anyone who longs to escape the chaos of city life. However, its centralized location still allows you seamless access to the Dallas and Fort Worth areas. Historically speaking, Weatherford is the cutting horse capital of the world. Cutting is an equestrian event in the western riding style where a horse and rider are judged on their ability to separate a single animal away from the cattle herd and keep it away for a short period of time. Legendary cattleman, who have called Weatherford home, even inspired Texas author’s Larry McMurty’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “Lonesome Dove.” Apart from its athletics and literary influence, Weatherford is also known for the Annual Park County Peach Festival, which occurs the second Saturday of every July, Christmas in the Square every December, and Weatherford Blooms, the town’s newest home and gardening festival.
