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.
Step out of the city life by going to Fort Richardson State Park and Historic Site and Sugar Tree Golf Course. Visit Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District and Davis & Blevins Main Street Gallery for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Fort Worth: Bluff Dale Vineyards (in Bluff Dale), Center for Animal Research & Education (in Bridgeport) and Nocona (Tales n Trails Museum & Horton's Classic Car Museum). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Meridian State Park, browse for treasures at The Cedar Chest Too Antique Mall, relax in the rural setting at The Windmill Farm, and admire the masterpieces at Kimbell Art Museum.
