    Fort Worth is one of the great Texas cities. The local museums are outstanding and could rival any in NYC. It's an old cowtown. So you can find a lot of cowboy themed adventures here as well a really good steak. It's stones throw from Dallas too, but you won't need to stray far. All the fun you'll need can be had in Fort Worth.

    Although it is in the shadow of Dallas this city is worth a visit. This is a little more cow town and authentic Texas than it's flashy neighbor.

    Fort Worth was established in the middle of the nineteenth century as an army outpost. Today it's the fifth largest city in Texas, with about three-quarters of a million people. I like Fort Worth, and would recommend a visit if you're ever in the area. I would especially visit the city's old historic stockyards.

    I never thought I would like Texas as much as I do. I can't say I'd ever live in Fort Worth, but the surrounding areas are pretty great. I really like Plano. It has the hometown feel that makes you feel safe.

    I went to Fort Worth in my wild day. When I worked for the carnival. I only did that for about 3 years and did it for 6 months each year.

    Great for people who travel in the spring or fall, just hot, hot in the July August months. The stock yards are awsome. they have Long horns on prade every day and the shopping and eating oh! my. If you like barbecue this is your town. Be sure to allow time for one complete day at least. It's special after dark all lit up. I hope u enjoy it as much as I did. Oh yes I love the Mex food. so many good spots. If you decide to go feel free to message me and I can recommend some spot that have resonable prices. Enjoy your trip

    Only stopover at the airport. Back from Honolulu to Philly and then over NY back to Germany. Nearly half around the World. From 28 degrees down to zero. Never forget this trip, because the Airport in Keflavik (Iceland) was closed because of the frozen weather. But I reached Hamburg save, with a stopover in Glasgow and London.

    Ft Worth feel more like a big town than a city. In some ways it is trying to hang on to its identity of an old west town while looking to the future. There are several areas around town worth a visit. There is a slower pace and the people seem a little more friendly on the west side of the metroplex.

    a place I'd rather be. Much more than Dallas itself. Dallas is either too hot or too cold. It's a crowded place and it can also be a dangerous place. I don't recommend it. some people like it ? I don't.

    Forget about the Stockyards - Fort Worth has world class art museums and restaurants - didn't know that did you?

    From what I remember it was alright, spent most of my time at the Zoo or with my girlfriend Lupe.
    The Fort Worth Zoo features natural habitat exhibits where visitors are often only separated from the animals by a river or pane of glass. Founded in 1909, this is the oldest continuous zoo site in Texas. Today, the Fort Worth Zoo boasts highly acclaimed education programs that cater to children, adults and teachers, as well as conservation programs that rank among the most respected in the world.
    With enough animals, hands-on interactive features and attractions to fill the day, the Fort Worth Zoo is an outstanding value. From

Description

Founded after the culmination of the Mexican American War, in honor of Gen. William Jenkins Worth, Fort Worth has grown from a military camp inhabited by a mere 42 veterans of the war, to a thriving city that now hosts about 661,000 residents. The rate of growth for Fort Worth is owed most directly to it's location, which, thanks to a number of stage lines, was one of Texas' most important stops ... read more
on the "cowboy" creating cattle driving express. Modern Fort Worth is sometimes thought of as just a sort of second rate Dallas, but the city has much to offer visitors, and has maintained it's cowboy spirit with more authenticity than it's better known neighbor. There are various cowboy related attractions and museums, and, adding a very much appreciated bit of political correctness to the term, there is even an expansive National Cowgirl Museum here, honoring the lives of the lesser discussed female presence in this rugged period of history. Many visitors experience this city during a brief stop-over at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, but if you have any time between flights, there are numerous restaurants and attractions across the city that will make even the most extensive of layovers seem like insufficient time to explore everything here.
