You’re certain to find thousands of Horned Frogs in Fort Worth. Not the lizards, but the graduates and fans of Texas Christian University, who proudly display their school pride through purple signs, t-shirts and banners across the city. Established in 1910, TCU has become one of the most picturesque and prominent small universities in the nation. It’s located just five miles from downtown/Sundance Square and a half-mile from the Fort Worth Zoo. Explore the campus on foot, then spend some time in the neighborhood along Berry Street and University Drive to experience a part of Fort Worth with a flavor all its own.
