Fort Worth

Fort Worth, Texas
Fort Worth has long been nicknamed "Cowtown," an ode to its birth as a cowboy's paradise along the Chisolm Trail. You'll still find plenty of pickup trucks and boots in Fort Worth, but the city is now known as much for its cultural attractions as for the Stockyards National Historic District that keeps the Old West alive.

Fort Worth is one of the largest cities in Texas and all of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is accessible (although it might be a 2-hour drive to the other side of DFW).

The Trinity River runs through town, and attractive municipal parks on its banks might be visits by horsemen and horsewomen riding the equestrian trails underneath a backdrop of a modern downtown.

The Museum District and Fort Worth Zoo are popular destinations for visitors.

Getting to Fort Worth

Fort Worth is the western anchor of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, that sprawling area in North Texas that encompasses hundreds of square miles and includes dozens of municipalities.

Major thoroughfares criss-cross the area, with the main ones being Interstate 35W on a north-south axis, and Interstates 30 and 20 on an east-west axis (these two highways merge west of town). Interstate 820 is a loop that circles the inner parts of town.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is one of the busiest in the nation. Dallas Love Field is another option for fliers, although it would require a longer drive to reach Downtown Fort Worth.
