THER INFO TO SEE:
Fort Worth Stock Yards
A stroll through the Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District, established in 1866, brings
visitors back to the old west. This location was once a major stopover for cattle drivers
on the Chisholm Trail. It is now home to shops, museums, and restaurants. You can catch
live shows and rodeos in this neck of the woods, as well.
National Cowgirl Museum and Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame
The west is known for cowboys and cowgirls from the past and present. The National Cowgirl Museum and
Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame illustrate the pride of Fort Worth. Full of memorabilia and information on
the cowboys and cowgirls of yesteryear, the sites depict past rodeos and the culture of the Old West,
as well as the western world of today.
Fort Worth Botanic Garden
Spanning over 109 acres, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden has been showing off its beauty to visitors since
1934. This awe-inspiring mesh of colors and textures features more than 2500 species of plants and
23 gardens. Japanese gardens, rose gardens, and even a rainforest conservatory provide tourists and
locals with a mesmerizing experience. Don’t pass up walking over the Koi pond on the incredible arched bridge.
Fort Worth Zoo
Walking through the Fort Worth Zoo, established in 1909, is perhaps one of the most entertaining
ways to spend a day. Among the zoo’s residents are more than 68 endangered species. Visit the great
apes, rhinos, African lions, meerkats, giraffes, hippos, and elephants. Kids will love the country
carousel and train, too.
Fort Worth’s city center buzzes day and night with people, energy and opportunity. It’s one of the most
walkable urban areas you’ll find anywhere – the perfect place to soak up the excitement and friendly
ambiance of Fort Worth. The heart of downtown is Sundance Square, a 35-square-block shopping and
entertainment district where charming, beautifully restored buildings stand alongside glittering
skyscrapers. Here, you’ll find locals, downtown residents and visitors among a multitude of restaurants,
shops, galleries and performance venues.
Fort Worth Water Gardens
One of the most interesting places in downtown Fort Worth is the Water Gardens near the Convention Center.
Travelers can cool off in the multiple, contrasting falls. The space is enclosed by beautiful,
shade-giving trees and even features a dedicated wading area. The meditation pool provides a peaceful
place to rest among the cypress trees.
Vintage Flying Museum
The Vintage Flying Museum located at Meacham International Airport is full of aircraft from years past,
such as the WWII DC3 and a B-29 Superfortress. The large collection of planes is accessible to visitors,
