Fort Worth has a strong western heritage. Not surprisingly therefore, it has been promoting itself as the “City of Cowboys and Culture.” Here you are sure to find some authentic Western culture. There simply is no way around some Western sights during this trip. Why not kick start your adventure in a cozy boutique hotel?
Fort Worth, which also goes by the nickname “Cowtown”, is home to the Cowgirl Hall of Fame & Museum. Here, you can observe a live cattle auction every other Friday and there is a daily cattle drive down Exchange Ave. Next, you can watch dollars being printed at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
The heart of downtown Fort Worth, on the other hand, is Sundance Square. The area is filled with restaurants, shops, galleries, and other entertainment. It is pretty much the place to be in Forth Worth. Moreover, the Cultural District has some of the best art museums, and most of them are free to visit. Of course, food and drink also play a great role in Fort Worth. Brewed is a popular coffeehouse-gastro pub, which serves local coffees on one side and craft brews and cocktails on the other. The best barbecue you can find in Angelo’s Barbecue.
It may not be one-of-a-kind or unique, but the Fort Worth Stockyards just cannot be missed when you are visiting the city. Take in the Wild West atmosphere, watch a rodeo, and enjoy a drink and meal at the bars and restaurants located here. This is also where you will find Billy Bob’s Texas, “The World’s Largest Honky Tonk,” as they say. The nightclub has several dance floors, arcade games, and even an indoor rodeo arena.
