It’s the “city of cowboys and culture,” but let’s face it, it’s the cowboys that most people associate with Fort Worth. After all, its nickname is Cowtown.
You probably already know about the historic Stockyards, where you can still see the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive, and the world-renowned zoo. You probably also know about the authentic BBQ and Tex-Mex.
But what about the art? The architecture? The cowgirls?
Here are ten surprising reasons to join the herd in Fort Worth, y’all.
World-class art is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Fort Worth, but that just makes it even more of a treat every time you see it – which will be often.
From the Instagrammable murals in the Foundry District’s Inspiration Alley to the masters in the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the city is a mecca for art. Spend some time at the Kimbell Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Sid Richardson Museum, and take a picture in front of the three-stories-tall Chisholm Trail Mural, which has become one of the city’s most popular attractions.
