History Buffs

Howdy partners, time to kick off our Fort Worth journey by exploring the city’s iconic ties to the Old West. The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District takes you back to the livestock trading era with vintage brick streets, classic saloons, and the famous twice-daily cattle drive shows. Don’t miss the chance to witness the thundering hooves of the Texas Longhorn herd along Exchange Avenue! Just north of the Stockyards lies the Log Cabin Village, an authentically preserved pioneer settlement offering a glimpse into 19th-century frontier life. Wander through original log structures relocated from across the state, enjoy live artisan demonstrations, and pick up a historical souvenir from the quaint general store.

Art Aficionados

While rustic cowboy charm abounds, Fort Worth has firmly established itself as a cultural mecca for spectacular Western art and more. The internationally-acclaimed Amon Carter Museum houses one of the nation’s most comprehensive collections of American artwork, including iconic works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell that capture the spirit of the American West in vivid detail. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth cuts quite a striking presence itself, incorporating long expanses of glass and geometric angles into its architectural design. Inside, marvel at postwar contemporary masterpieces while taking in lovely views of the neighboring Modern Art Museum’s reflecting pond.

Fort Worth caters to all ages with adrenaline-pumping thrills and interactive edutainment. Catch a live pro bull riding event or championship rodeo at Dickies Arena, or spend a day of heart-pounding excitement at the Fort Worth Zoo.

Worth Nature Center & Refuge offers a sanctuary of lush prairies and wooded hills to discover via over 20 miles of hiking trails and observation decks. Keep those binoculars handy for glimpses of native Texas wildlife like bison, prairie dogs, armadillos, and over 200 species of birds that call this tranquil haven home.

Continue the adventure on two wheels by connecting to the extensive Fort Worth Bike trails to explore Cowtown on two wheels.

How to Get Around Fort Worth

Public Transportation

Let’s be honest, while Fort Worth offers multiple public transit services for locals, the bus system isn’t exactly the most convenient way for newcomers to navigate the full breadth of the city’s expansive 350+ square mile landscape. Options include the Trinity Metro bus and TEXRail services (connecting to DFW airport), but routes and schedules can be limiting. Groups looking to hit all the top attractions may find riding the buses results in missed connections and excessive travel times between destinations.

Taxis and Rideshares

Catching an Uber or Lyft around town provides more flexibility for small parties and individuals. But costs can get steep quickly, especially if you require multiple vehicles for a larger group. And good luck finding enough rideshare team to accommodate your entire crew when it’s time to travel between major hotspots like the Stockyards and West 7th.
