Fort Worth is a smaller, more user-friendly neighbor to Dallas, proud of its cow-handling roots and Western heritage.
The Southwestern Stock Show and Rodeo is an annual event, held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and the Stockyards District has been transformed into a leisure and shopping precinct.
The Stockyards Museum gives the lowdown on the city’s cow-town past, and friendly cowboys on horseback ride past to answer questions and perform a twice-daily drive of Texas longhorn cattle.
There’s high culture in Fort Worth too, including the Modern Art Museum, galleries and Museum of Science & Nature in the city’s Cultural District.
Forth Worth is around 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Dallas.
The city has 3 major districts for visitors: Sundance Square in downtown, the Cultural District, and the Stockyards. The 3 areas are connected by Molly the Trolley, free in the downtown area.
