Here are four fun destinations to explore and learn more about Fort Worth’s distinct culture:
A staple of the old west, the Fort Worth Stockyards take you back to a time of real life cowboys who worked the land and moved cattle across the western frontier. See the Fort Worth Herd Cattle Drive held every day at 11:30 a.m. & 4 p.m. as well as Pawnee Bill’s Wild West Show complete with trick roping, shooting and riding!
Fort Worth has a lot more than cattle through. Come see a myriad of creatures at the Fort Worth Zoo. Home to more than 7,000 native and exotic animals and several indoor and outdoor exhibits, the Fort Worth Zoo provides an entire day of fun for any family. Kids can learn how to round ’em up and move ’em out at Texas Wild!, a hands-on exhibit that showcases the unique wildlife of the Lone Star State and includes a petting zoo. They can visit all four great ape species in the 2.5-acre world of primates or get eye-to-eye with some of the most endangered reptiles and amphibians on the planet at the Museum of Living Art (MOLA).
Pique your curiosity at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Explore Texas’ energy resources, dinosaurs that were once native to North Texas, and the cattle industry. Your children will love the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, not to mention the IMAX Theater and the Noble Planetarium!
