If you're traveling to North Texas during Super Bowl XLV with children, Fort Worth is a great destination for family fun. You can find several Fort Worth Kids Events on the Calendar of Fort Worth Events but here are some of the options always available in the City of Cowboys and Culture.
For starters, there is the 115th championship year of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. Held at Will Rogers Memorial Center, this annual event runs from January 14 through February 5 and features a fantastic lineup of fun: premier livestock and horse shows, kid-friendly exhibits, daily live music, the carnival midway, four acres of shopping and so much more.
Don't miss the Museum of Science & History, where bright violet, orange and yellow walls practically scream "Fun!" from a mile away. Entrance to this museum is included with your ticket to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo! Inside, mom and dad will have as much fun as the kids, whether it's crawling around a massive sandbox, playing with air and light in hands-on activities or taking clipboard in hand to solve mysterious homicides in the high-tech, totally immersive and totally cool "CSI: The Experience" exhibit.
The Fort Worth Zoo offers families one of the nation's best zoos. Any kid can say she's seen lions, but how many can say they saw a komodo dragon?! With learning stations, a rock-climbing tower, carousel and miniature train, there's more to the Fort Worth Zoo than just looking, but the looking is good - especially at its new Museum of Living Art. Stop in to see frogs, lizards and other crawly things almost too colorful to be real.
Kids will love weekend rodeos and the daily Fort Worth Cattle Drive at the Stockyards National Historic District. Fort Worth has some of the Best Rodeos in Texas. And don't miss the chance show your family how gutsy women helped make America great with the fun audio/video exhibits at the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame - where else can you find a theater with saddles as seats? Entrance to this Fort Worth Museum is also included with your ticket from the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.
