Ideal Day in Fort Worth: My ideal day in Fort Worth would be begin with an early jog along the Trinity Trails followed by breakfast at one of my favorite local cafes, Yogis. My friends and I would spend mid-morning in the Fort Worth Stockyards where we would have a glimpse into the past by watching the cattle drive, shopping at the Stockyards Station shops, and ending with lunch at Tim Love’s Love Shack.  If its football season in Fort Worth, there is no doubt I would be enjoying a late afternoon tailgate and cheering on my alma mater, the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs!  Afterwards, my friends and I would enjoy the amazing signature cocktails at Del Frisco’s in beautiful downtown.

What do you like most about working in the tourism/hospitality industry? It is an industry that allows you to grow professionally and personally.  I like the opportunities that it has provided me to use my talents and skills. Meeting people from different cultures and making friends and business associates is exciting.

How would you describe Fort Worth to a visitor? Fort Worth is the true definition of a community.  The members of the community are well natured and show the ideal southern hospitality. The city is constantly growing yet members of the community are excellent at preserving its history. I love living in Fort Worth!

What makes Fort Worth different than any other destination?  Fort Worth is different from any other destination because the city is constantly growing.  The variety of attractions provides the opportunity for a visitor to experience a one of a kind museum, a family day at the zoo, or late night dancing under the Texas stars. No matter where you are in the city there is always great weather and excitement awaiting!
