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.
Head to Sundance Square and Lifestylez Nails Spafor some retail therapy. You'll explore and learn at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Fort Worth: Acton State Park (in Acton), Magnolia Market Silos (in Waco) and Bluff Dale Vineyards (in Bluff Dale). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, take in nature's colorful creations at Fort Worth Botanic Garden, identify plant and animal life at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, and learn about winemaking at Umbra Winery.

To see traveler tips, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Fort Worth driving holiday planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Fort Worth. In October in Fort Worth, expect temperatures between 82°F during the day and 61°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Austin.

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Sun): get a taste of the local shopping with 6th Street, stop by Wild About Music, then get engrossed in the history at LBJ Presidential Library, then take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, and finally wander the streets of South Congress Avenue. Here are some ideas for day two: trek along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, take an in-depth tour of Bullock Texas State History Museum, and then ponder the world of politics at Texas State Capitol.
