Welcome to the city of cowboys, just a 30-minute drive from Dallas. Fort Worth is full of unparalleled Western heritage, great architecture, cultural institutions, diverse restaurants, and exciting nightlife. The heart of downtown is Sundance Square, a 35-block shopping and entertainment district where charming, beautifully restored buildings stand alongside glittering skyscrapers. Here, you’ll find locals, restaurants, shops, galleries and performance venues.
Once home to cowboys, cattlemen, and outlaws, today the Stockyards National Historic District is one of the most popular attractions in Texas. It’s well worth the visit to get the true cowboy feel. Make sure that you stop at Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest Honkytonk. Visit the cultural district – In a single, park-like setting, you can span virtually the entire history of art, from priceless antiquities to Impressionist milestones to modern artworks. While you are in this area of town be sure to visit Fort Worth Botanic Gardens and the Fort Worth Zoo.
