Get out your chaps and boots and ‘get your cowboy’ on! WTMG members are invited to visit Ft. Worth, Texas for a view of ‘real” cowboy culture.
Ft. Worth is the 16th-largest city in the United States and part of the No. 1 tourist destination in Texas, welcoming 6.5 million visitors annually. But, Fort Worth is not just about cowboys. Comprised of seven primary entertainment districts, this exciting city offers distinct dining, shopping, entertainment and cultural amenities. In only a few days you can enjoy a range of experiences from NASCAR racing to rodeos, world-class museums to cowboy cuisine, boutique shopping to a Top 5 zoo, biking to horseback riding.
Fort Worth is conveniently located 17.5 miles from DFW International Airport. With 1,850 flights daily, DFW Airport serves as a gateway for visitors from around the globe, making Fort Worth an easily accessible international leisure destination.
In their own words: “Cowboys and Culture isn’t just a tagline, nowhere else can you find the western heritage that is so quintessentially Texas. Today, visitors can experience the Old West beautifully preserved and honored through our Stockyards National Historic District and downtown’s Sundance Square.
“Also known as the ‘Cultural Capital of the Southwest,’ Fort Worth is home to a world-renowned Cultural District, home to five world-class museums housing some of the most important works of art of the 20th century.
“The city leaders who celebrated Fort Worth as “Where the West Begins” also had the vision to establish the city as the cultural destination of the Southwest. This ideal is apparent in our coveted Van Cliburn Piano Competition, Bass Performance Hall, museums and galleries, world-class symphony, opera, ballet and theater programs.
“Our reputation for being safe and friendly makes us a perfect getaway for families as well. The Fort Worth Zoo is a top five zoo in the nation and a national draw, and our proximity to major league attractions like Texas Motor Speedway, Rangers Ballpark, Cowboys Stadium and Six Flags makes us the perfect place to spend a long weekend.”
