Anyone who’s been to Fort Worth can vouch for what an exciting and unusual city it is – you really are on cowboy territory and there’s no escaping it. Aside from living the childhood dream of seeing (or being) the milky bar kid, it evokes that sense of familiarity that comes from visiting a truly authentic place that you’ve otherwise only experienced through movies. But it’s not all about the cowboys, there’s an amazing array of culture on offer, too. We’ve devised an itinerary that will give you an unforgettable four days in this new travel hot spot. Get those lassoes at the ready.

Known and loved for its distinctive Wild West flavour, Fort Worth is still a treasure trove of all things cowboy. Don your best cowboy boots and head down to the legendary Stockyards National Historic District where there are regular cattle drives, rodeos, and of course lashings of live country music. Luckily there are also a fair few saloons dotted about serving cold beers and enormous slabs of steak. The following day take the time to explore the Fort Worth Cultural District – stopping in at The Kimble Art Museum for a peak into their fantastic modern art gallery, before heading off in search of cowboy-themed gifts from one of the many shops. On your second night in Fort Worth we’d recommend trying out some Mexican cuisine at Cantina Laredo before stopping in at Bar 9 for great drinks and live DJ sets.
