Welcome to “Cowtown” the city of Cowboys, Cattle and Culture. There are many, many parts of Fort Worth to explore, but we've included some of our favorite stops down below. Saddle on up and ride em'!
Stockyards National Historic District
Fort Worth is famous for the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, and it’s a must-see, especially for out-of-staters who want the true “Texas” experience. Get a history lesson at the Stockyards Museum, walk among the greats at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, ride a bull and shop at Stockyards Station. You can even take a ride on a horse of your own at the Stockyards Stables or watch a real rodeo every Friday and Saturday night at the Stockyards Championship Rodeo.
Billy Bob's Texas
You can even honky-tonk the night away at Billy Bob’s Texas. Throw on your finest cowboy hat, put on your boots and grab your dance partner for the world’s largest honky-tonk.
Fort Worth Cultural District
If you are “cowboy’d” out (if that’s even possible…), then its time for some “culture” at the Fort Worth Cultural District boasting some of the finest art collections in the world. The Amon Carter Museum of American Art holds incredible Remington and Russell western pieces you;d expect to be in “Cowtown”, but it also holds an American art collection as diverse as our country. For art outside the U.S., the Kimbell Art Museum contains paintings and sculptures from the best of the best, including Michelangelo, Picasso, Frida, Van Gogh and Monet. You won’t believe it! And the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth holds a vast collection of artwork that will blow your mind. I highly recommend checking out all three if you have time.
If you’re hungry at the stockyards, grab a “Love Burger” for the Love Shack owned by celebrity chef Tim Love. I suggest getting the “Dirty Love Burger” which is a cheeseburger topped with a pile of bacon and a fried quail egg, and don’t skimp out on the Chili Parmesan chips!
Cattlemen's Steak House
While you’re in “Cowtown” you definitley gotta eat some beef. For one of the best steaks in town, head to the legendary Cattlemen’s Steak House, serving it up the same “classic” way since 1947.
Joe T. Garcia's Mexican Restaurant
For even older Tex-Mex, look no further than Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant just outside the stockyards. Since 1935, Joe T.’s has been serving delicious food and draws a crowd big enough to fill its 1,600 seat patio.
Horseback Ride the Chisholm Trail
Experience the historic Chisholm Trail that winds through Fort Worth the way the cowboys used to: on horseback! Take a relaxing ride out of the city and along the Trinity River.
