Don't Miss the Fort Worth for the Trees
Where the Old West is still alive and fused with the modern world, Fort Worth is a timeless hub of adventure. Originally built as an army outpost, the city was a center for cattle trade before becoming the architectural treasure it is today. The "City of Cowboys and Culture" certainly lives up to its name with the museums, world-class theatres, and one of the nation's top zoos. Let's go beyond the arts and see more of what Fort Worth has to offer.
A botanical garden isn't the first thing to pop in your head when you think of cowboys or the Old West, but there is a 110-acre garden in Fort Worth. Built in 1934, the Fort Worth Botanical Garden is in the center of the cultural district. It makes for a pleasant walk between museums and plays. In the garden, you'll find a 10,000 square foot conservatory, a vegetable area with educational programs, and a fragrance garden, among many other spaces. Continuing with outdoor beauty, near the Convention Center you'll find the Fort Worth Water Gardens. There are three separate pools surrounded by high walls and trees, offering a tranquil getaway. Fun fact, the 1976 film "Logan's Run" featured one of these pools.
An excellent example of how Fort Worth keeps its roots alive is the Stockyards National Historic District. There you'll find the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Texas Trail of Fame. It's like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but more adventurous. There's also a longhorn drive twice a day and a cattle auction. While down there, check out a real live rodeo. Every Friday and Saturday night, there's bronco riding, barrel racing, calf roping, and cowboy bulls putting on a show. Let's not forget the deep-fried food, horse riding, and parades that make rodeos so much fun.
