Downtown Fort Worth

The Finest Fun in Fort Worth

Together, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the largest urban areas in the country, but the Big D gets most of the attention. Here are a few of our favorite ways to have fun in Fort Worth proper.

Learn a thing or two.

Fort Worth is home to a large variety of museums perfect for inquiring minds young and old. Kids will love the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, where they'll find all sorts of hands-on educational exhibits and programs inviting them to explore everything from dinosaurs and prehistoric life to outer space.

Get a little artsy.

For the art lovers in the family, Fort Worth is a must. The architecture of and collection within the Kimball Art Museum is renowned the world over for a reason; the more beautiful side of the Old West is on display at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art; and the strikingly designed Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is home to an array of post-WWII works.

Every April, artists and art lovers fill downtown Fort Worth for the Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival. The four-day fest is a great way to see the works of local artists, as well as try local food offerings and browse local pop-up shops.

The arts are alive in Fort Worth.

Cut loose.

After you pack in an afternoon of arts and culture, cut loose with a drink – Fort Worth is home to countless cool watering holes. Check out The Usual, if you're craving a craft cocktail. The prohibition-style establishment is located in the Southside neighborhood.

Cut a rug.

Looking to extend the night? How about some dancing at Billy Bob's Texas? The self-proclaimed "World’s Largest Honkytonk," Billy's has live country music, pool popcorn, and grade-A people watching. There's also rodeo action on the right nights. Don't shy away from the Three-Legged Monkey, the legendary shot will raise hairs – and maybe even sprout some new ones.

More rodeo fun.

Of course, Billy Bob's ain't the only place for a little rodeo fun in Fort Worth. Stockyard's Rodeo puts on a show every Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Cowtown Coliseum Arena.

And every January and February, the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo brings even more fun. Established in 1896, this thing is a longstanding local tradition to say the least.

Relive the Old West.

For more old-time fun after the rodeo's done, check out Stockyards Station. Adjacent to the Cowtown Coliseum Arena, the Stockyards features include the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, Texas Trail of Fame, Livestock Exchange, Stockyards Stables, and Grapevine Vintage Railroad.

See a show.

For a city so rooted in cowboy culture, Fort Worth is home to quite a few top-quality jazz clubs too. Scat Jazz Lounge is a local favorite. Located right in the heart of the downtown area, the venue showcases a wide variety of local, regional, and national acts honoring the traditions of jazz music.

Feel some high-octane excitement.

Located on the north end of town, Texas Motor Speedway hosts a number of major NASCAR and IndyCar races. Got the need for speed? Major annual Texas Motor Speedway events include the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and the Verizon IndyCar Series.
