Fort Worth is the epitome of everything cowboy related; once home to cattlemen, outlaws and cowboys themselves, it has kept its identity, albeit in a more urban environment, with interesting museums such as the marvelous Kimbell Art Museum and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. However, let us not lose this much loved city’s original reason for being here; watch the Fort Worth Herd, the world’s only twice daily cattle drive, take in a rodeo, or two step the night way at one of Billy Bob’s honky-tonk concerts. Ready to take your partners? Let’s have a look at the best things to do in Fort Worth.
1. Kimbell Art Museum
This is quite an unusual art museum in that the natural light inside always displays its pieces in a way that shows them to their best advantage. And, cleverly, the humidity is carefully controlled to keep the art at its best condition. The museum hosts a small and excellent collection together with educational programs, traveling art exhibitions and an extensive research library. The lovely thing about this museum is that its intimate size makes it more approachable for people who are new to art museums. There are just a few exemplary examples on show, so a nice place to take your kids to get them started! There is also a fabulous shop selling everything from publications, prints, gifts, jewelry and more.
