Love My Local: Alliance North Fort Worth

Walking trails in our neighborhood.

Since moving to north Fort Worth almost 40 (ahem) years ago, my family has lived in this same general area. When we first moved here, though, it looked drastically different — way more rural than the booming scene it is now. The Alliance corridor in north Fort Worth has everything, and I absolutely adore our location. I’m a city girl . . . pretty sure it’s in my blood . . . and I’m completely content in our little corner of the universe. 

Walkable Community

I live in the school district I work in. I have a five-minute commute to work, and my oldest walks to and from his high school. Keller ISD is a top notch school district, and I’m so thankful my kids are thriving here. 

Our neighborhood has a park within walking distance of every home with gorgeous trails to get you from point A to point B. 

Morning Meditation — so good and so healthy!

Northpark YMCA is within walking distance of our house and is super affordable. My kids are old enough to use the equipment (starting at 12 years of age), and they all enjoy going, so now working out has become a family activity we enjoy doing together. There’s a beautiful greenbelt between our house and the YMCA, so when it’s nice out, we add a short walk to and from our workout. 

Eats and Treats

Some of my favorite restaurants are within a three-mile radius of my house. First Watch is a fantastic, farm-to-table restaurant with some of the best breakfast and brunch items I’ve ever had. My favorite items on the menu are the Morning Meditation juice and the A.M. Superfoods bowl.  

A new fave, Grub Kitchen and Bar, just opened up. I love the uplifting atmosphere and the super affordable and yummy menu. The drinks and the queso are on point, and there is a super cute patio with plenty of space for the kids to run around as well as some fun lawn games like corn hole. 

One of our favorites stops for a sweet treat is Sweet and Sawyer. They have delish cookies, ice cream, and old fashioned candy to make everyone happy. The shop itself is pretty sweet as well.

Other Alliance Northeast Fort Worth Amenities

We live in somewhat of a medical district. Just about every kind of practice imaginable is a very short drive from our home. I can walk to our family’s ENT. My son sees a neurologist who is just about two blocks from our house. Our family doctor is about four blocks from our house. Texas Health Alliance Hospital is two miles from our home, and we’ve already had to make use of it. We also have a Pediatric Urgent Care for Kids only 1.6 miles from our home, and that has come in handy for those after-hours, urgent visits. 

Alliance Town Center offers pretty much everything you can imagine in terms of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. We have a movie theater, Main Event, and Kid Mania all within a four-mile radius of our home. We also have this divine spa, Melt Spa & Massage, right down the road. It’s adorable inside and offers massages, facials — you name it. Perfect for the mama who needs a little pampering and self-care. 

I love my local area because it really offers everything I need and then some. Everything is convenient, and it’s such a family-friendly location. The great schools are a bonus, and access to needed healthcare without having to leave the neighborhood is such a blessing. If you haven’t visited the Alliance area, you should. I’ll meet up with you for a Morning Meditation and show you around!
