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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Log Cabin Village and Thistle Hill House Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Amon Carter Museum of American Art and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Texas Civil War Museum, make a splash at NRH2O Family Water Park, admire the striking features of St. Patrick Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Top O'Hill Terrace.

To find ratings, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Fort Worth trip tool .
