Fort Worth

— 3 nights

Where the West Begins

Advertising itself as the place where the American West begins, Fort Worth stubbornly clings to its cowboy roots, making it a distinctly different town from most other urban centers of its size.
Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District and St. Patrick Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Top O'Hill Terrace and Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Fort Worth: Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park (in Dallas), Prestonwood Baptist Church (in Plano) and Frisco RoughRiders (in Frisco). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Log Cabin Village, explore the world behind art at Sid Richardson Museum, and examine the collection at Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

Planning Fort Worth trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
