Fort Worth holidays allow you to fully immerse yourself in the cowboy culture of the American South. Southern hospitality is abundant, and there are plenty of exciting corners to explore in terms of art, culture, history and more.
Arguably, one of the leading attractions in the Fort Worth region is the Fort Worth Stockyards. Here, you will be able to observe and take part in the classic cowboy lifestyle. See the rodeo and a cattle drive, go bull riding and, of course, be sure to visit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. This Hall of Fame museum pays tribute to over 70 cowboys and cowgirls from the past. Conclude your time at the Stockyards with a drink at a traditional cowboy saloon – the White Elephant Saloon is popular.
Another thrilling entertainment hub is Sundance Square, which can be found close to the Fort Worth Water Gardens. It’s the ultimate entertainment complex and is home to a wide assortment of restaurants, parks, galleries and performance venues.
Fort Worth holidays: unmissable activities for families
Arlington, Texas is another popular hot spot for Fort Worth holidays. It’s where you’ll find Six Flags Over Texas – a sizeable amusement park and the number one spot for family friendly fun. The Six Flags Hurricane Harbour is another must for families. It’s a water park that spans across 50 acres. Finally, Arlington is where the River Legacy Living Science Centre is located – a wonderful opportunity to teach the kids about nature, and to give them free reign to explore the numerous interactive exhibits.
History buffs will have an incredible time unpacking the variety of post World War II art and exhibitions at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, which dates back to 1892.
