The Top 10 Things To Do and See in Fort Worth

Updated: 9 February 2017
Fiercely proud of its cowboy heritage, Fort Worth was once the center of the state’s cattle industry. Today, in addition to the famous stockyards that once housed thousands of longhorns, the city includes a modern downtown, the artsy Near Southside Neighborhood, and the beautiful TCU campus. While visitors are sure to appreciate a tour through cowboy country, the sprawling Fort Worth boasts hidden spots that make it much more than Dallas’s western cousin.

Stockyards National Historic District

Although Fort Worth’s moniker of ‘The Wall Street of The West’ has long since passed, the spirit of ‘Cowtown’ lives on in the stockyards, especially with the twice-daily longhorn drive. The old Livestock Exchange Building now hosts a museum that regals visitors with tales of the Chisholm Trail. Visit the Exchange Building on a Friday, and you may be lucky enough to see a cattle auction. What was once a huge industry has slowed to a trickle of longhorns, but exploring the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Texas Trail of Fame – Fort Worth’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame – is sure to be an adventure.
