The Best & Brightest
Forgive us if we toot our own “horn”ed frog, but Fort Worth is home to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country. Texas Christian University, Texas Wesleyan University, Texas A&M University School of Law and Tarrant County College District are just a few of the institutions of higher learning that attract the best and brightest faculty and students. You could say great minds think alike.
How the West Was Won
Relive the heyday of the wild west! Witness a real-life cattle drive. Watch drovers (cattlemen) as they demonstrate grooming and saddling a horse, roping and other horsemanship techniques. History buffs will enjoy the Stockyards Museum with its collection of artifacts, photos and exhibits documenting the importance of the stockyards to Fort Worth and Texas. Finally, be sure to grab some grub at any one of the many authentic Texas barbecue or Tex-Mex restaurants.
Call of the Wild
The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is the oldest major botanic garden in Texas. The FWBG is composed of 25 specialty gardens and has long been known for its tropical, rose and Japanese gardens. Be sure to visit the Rose Garden, considered to be the most romantic garden and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Children will love the Native Texas Boardwalk with its 13 educational stations such as hollow log, speaking tubes, and balance beams. The Boardwalk also offers a shaded pathway from the northern gardens to the southern gardens.
The Fort Worth Zoo is home to over 540 species including 148 bird species, 172 ectotherm species, and 72 species of mammals. As part of their “Wilder Vision,” the zoo has set out to create new habitat space and renovate existing habitats. Habitats include African Savanna, Elephant Springs, Australian Outback, Flamingo Bay, Raptor Canyon and World of Primates to name just a few.
Fort Worth’s Cultural District includes some of the finest museums in the country – all within a short distance of each other and located just west of downtown.
The Kimbell Art Museum hosts a permanent collection of masterpieces as well as international on-loan and traveling exhibitions. The museum also offers workshops, tours, lectures and happy hours.
“The Carter” is a celebration of American creativity. The museum’s mission is to “collect, preserve, and exhibit the finest examples of American art” and it fulfills this mission impeccably with its collection of various artworks, artists and mediums ranging from the eighteenth century to present day.
The Modern is the master at showcasing art from the 1940s to the present day. The building itself, the vision of renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando, is a modern work of art with its stunning composition of steel, concrete and glass. Its ever evolving collection invites audiences to experience the “most compelling art and ideas of our time”.
The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is a member of the Smithsonian Affiliate program and features exhibitions such as the DinoLabs, DinoDig, Innovation Studios, the Children’s Museum, Energy Blast, and the Cattle Raiser’s Museum.
The Sundance Kid
This downtown district is literally Fort Worth’s entertainment hub. Sundance Square is abuzz with performers, events and concerts year round. As people walk along the plaza, they are met with a seemingly endless number of bars, restaurants and shops to choose from. For a more peaceful experience, visitors can enjoy the iconic Fort Worth Water Gardens with its beautiful pools and waterfalls. If you have the opportunity, see a live performance at the Bass Performance Hall.
Bass Performance Hall is a premier performing arts venue in North Texas. The lights of Broadway shine just as bright in Fort Worth as Bass Hall hosts Broadway at the Bass. Throughout the season, see such performances as Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, Jesus Christ Superstar and the critically acclaimed Hamilton.
Celebrating 40 years, The Jubilee Theatre is the original home of African-American theater in North Texas. The Jubilee gives voice to the African-American experience while inviting a diverse audience. Through music and plays, the Jubilee emanates the universal messages that transcend all cultures.
Located on Panther Island, northwest of Sundance Square, catch a double feature under the stars. Burgers, wings and of course popcorn and candy are available at the Canteen’s covered concession area. The Canteen also serves a wide variety of craft, domestic and imported beers as well as red and white wines. Rain or shine, you won’t be stranded at the drive-in.
You don’t need to be a social media influencer to #love the murals that adorn Fort Worth’s building facades. Sprinkled throughout Fort Worth’s many unique neighborhoods, visiting each mural is like a colorful, vibrant scavenger hunt in search of the perfect photo op.
Anywhere you visit, when it comes to restaurants, eat where the locals eat.

Located along Fort Worth’s Chisholm Trail Parkway, this multi-phase, master-planned community will encompass 270 acres of residential, riverfront access, hotel, retail, dining, entertainment, office and green space and hike-and-bike trails.
In 2018, Magnolia Avenue was named one of the “Great Places in America” by the American Planning Association. It’s close proximity to historic neighborhoods and the medical district have made this a desirable, mixed-use neighborhood. Magnolia Village continues to transform as housing options expand, businesses open, and new construction projects are underway.
It began with the restoration of the Markeen Apartments, but it didn’t stop there. Little by little, Sawyer Grocery, Miller Manufacturing and Supreme Golf buildings experienced their own transformation. Today, South Main Village is home to new residential units, offices, bars and music venues such as Shipping & Receiving. Ongoing construction signals the addition of new mixed-use and residential units as well as the adaptation of existing structures to maintain the charm of this eclectic neighborhood.
West 7th may bridge together downtown and the Cultural District, but it has an identity all its own. West 7th is a five-block, pedestrian-friendly urban village which offers fashion retailers, dining and entertainment venues such as Movie Tavern, an in-theatre dining experience. Montgomery Plaza was once the home of the Montgomery Ward Company and has since been transformed into a new luxury residential community.
