Fort Worth: City of Cowboys and Culture

31 03 2010

Dallas gets all the attention. They even call it the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, the Dallas/Ft. Wort airport…

I’ve got nothing against Dallas. I love me some Dallas. Good food, lots going on… but it’s time Fort Worth got a little attention of its own!

If you haven’t been through this smaller, but still vibrant downtown, you’re missing a real treat. Sparkling with lights, filled with real life cowboys walking around tall in their cowboy hats, and all the Western fun you can take — Fort Worth was the last Southern gem we stopped at on our journey west.

There is a year-round rodeo to visit, more museums than you can shake a stick at, the Will Rogers Memorial Center and the famed Sundance Square.

So, if you’re in the area, or even if you’re not, make plans to visit this “City of Cowboys and Culture.”

Me and the hubs, enjoying some good Tex-Mex and some great mariachi music!
