Magnolia Avenue is a vibrant, tree-lined street in the popular Near Southside district. Dine al fresco on one of the many patios while sipping on the varietal wines available at The Magnolia Wine Bar, Grand Cru and Ellerbe Fine Foods. All offer exquisite selections by the bottle or glass.

This one-mile strip of mom-and-pop shops is where the locals congregate. Snag a hat from Fort Worth Locals or update your dining wear collection of handmade bowls and cups from Kendall Davis Clay. Make your own art to take home at SiNaCa Glassblowing Studios.

Delve into a wide assortment of culinary experiences with cuisines from around the world, from King Tut’s Egyptian flair to Poke Poke’s Hawaiian tang, with dozens of others in between.

Rest your head at a local bed and breakfast like the Rosen House Inn, an early 1900s B&B nestled in the comfortable setting of the Fairmount neighborhood, or the nearby Texas White House Bed & Breakfast, owned by a local Chef Cindy Lucio.

Tap your boot to the tune of Fort Worth's newest artists by tuning into Amplify817, a commercial-free streaming service playing local acts. You'll be singing Fort Worth all the way to your next destination.
