DescriptionNot only is Fort Worth known as "Where the West Begins," but also for its unique mix of cowboys and culture. No other city provides the opportunity for one to see Texas Longhorn cattle being herded down the street and then the choice of five internationally-recognized museums. Not enough? Check out the Sundance Square entertainment district, Bass Performance Hall (one of the top 10 opera houses in the world), the Fort Worth Zoo or the Botanic Gardens. Fort Worth has artfully blended its heritage with world-class cultural appreciation. Save your tiaras for the city to the East, a smile and pair of boots goes a long way in Fort Worth.
Unlike other southern cities, Fort Worth embraces their country heritage by walking the walk and talking the talk. When visiting here you can browse the local longhorn cattle going up for auction, have a beer with a genuine cowboy, and salute the flag prior to the rodeo. There are no sensitivities to political correctness in Fort Worth, and you wouldn't want it any other way. This city is safe and friendly like the true south should be! There is plenty of farm to table food with local BBQ at its best and ice cream churned from the freshest milk. No city talk of imports and organics, that's just a given here!
If you want to experience country life like it was meant to be you can steer away from the big city of Nashville and get the down home dirt in Fort Worth. Oddly, as country as it may be they also host internationally acclaimed arts that will cater to the bourgeois side of life. Though jeans and cowboy hats are nothing but the norm here, you can feel culturally refined after a long day on the ranch. The city of Fort Worth offers many family friendly attractions or solo bar scenes. You will have a good time getting in touch with the your cowboy side in this gem of a city.
