Description

Not 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.

    Cowboy central

    While you may question comparing five star New York to five star Texas, there's a reason! Fort Worth is the epitome of cultural diversity. No, you may not find gay pride rallies here...the diversity I'm speaking of is one that stomps cowboy boots and measures their hats by the gallon.

    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.

    Fun, Charming Town With Lots To Do

    02/21/13
    I loved Fort Worth. It has all the comfort of a well-established Texas city, but maintains the charm of what Texas used to be. The Stockyards are so much fun and the food is fantastic. If you love culture and BBQ, this is a great city to visit.

    Step back in time with a visit to Fort Worth's Stockyards. Real cowboys patrol the streets on horseback and herd the Texas Longhorns down Exchange Avenue twice daily. While in the district visit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame or year-long rodeo at Cowtown Coliseum. With so much to do, don't forget to stop in one of the many saloons and listen to the live music.
