Summer is officially here. Check out our picks for family fun in the sun this June.
Fort Worth Herd Experience
The legendary Fort Worth Herd rides again with the launch of the all-new Fort Worth Herd Experience. While the cattle drive remains on hiatus, an overview of the history of cattle drives is presented by Herd drovers and steers at the Fort Worth Herd Observation Deck in the Fort Worth Stockyards. The 15-minute event takes place at the top of each hour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays with up to 20 people attending each session by reserving a free ticket in advance.

Fort Worth Zoo Re-Opens
The Fort Worth Zoo has kept us entertained and engaged through their many virtual live feeds the past few months. You can now visit the No. 4 Zoo in the nation (USA Today) by following a few new safety guidelines. Advanced ticket purchase is required. Guests must enter the Zoo during their allotted timeslot. Early or late arrivals will not be accommodated. Get the details.
