Fort Worth Travel Guide

Introduction

Fort Worth is a rare entity – a cow town with cultural aspirations! It is the smaller, lower profile sibling of Dallas, adjacent to the latter and part of the grand design of the "Metroplex" which takes in the two cities and dozens of other surrounding communities. The city has in it the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, as well as a downtown square named after the Old West folk hero, the Sundance Kid, who, together with partner in crime Butch Cassidy, once hid out here. Fort Worth is also the home of Van Cliburn, world-renowned classical pianist who, at age 23, won the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and inspired the city's Annual Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 1962, before moving to the city permanently in 1966 and reviving his career. The city, in any case, is largely centered on its revitalized downtown, which is also its best feature, incorporating in it one of the nation's finest art districts, along with 14 blocks of shops, live theater, museums, restaurants and nightclubs, and offering in it an exemplary restoration of a downtown in an American city. Fort Worth, ultimately, is a cultural jewel of the American West, one that promotes itself as – what else? – the "City of Cowboys and Culture."

Location

Fort Worth is located in north-central Texas, adjacent to Dallas, overlooking the Trinity River.
