Texas Things to Do: 295 reviews and 712 photos

Fort Worth lies within Tarrant County and hey say Fort Worth is the city where the 'West' begins, it is "Cowtown, USA" and Dallas's younger sister. Definitely quite a contrast to the very business-like Dallas. The art museums, performing arts centre and parks are second in total acreage only to Chicago.

The Water Gardens are a spectacular park which features water in all aspects - bubbling, flowing, sprinkling, pouring and gurgling.

The beautiful Japanese gardens are a place of tranquillity at any time of the year. The FW Zoo has to be one of the best I have seen anywhere and has its own Texas flavour. Fort Worth Stockyards is in the National Historical District and you can really feel the old west recaptured all along Exchange Avenue.
