Not much time to spend in Fort Worth? Hit some of our major highlights in only a few short hours. 

Get breakfast or lunch at Woodshed Smokehouse. Tim Love’s little ‘shed on the Trinity has several real wood-burning fireplaces outdoors on the patio facing the river, augmented by a handful of electric heaters. The back porch includes a walk-up bar.

Walk, jog, bike, or horseback ride on the 100-mile-long Trinity Trails that follow the Trinity River through many popular spots around the city. These trails are dog and family-friendly. 

Magnolia Avenue in the trendy Near Southside is fun, funky and pedestrian-friendly. Do some shopping, grab some lunch or rent a Fort Worth Bike Share bicycle along a mile-long strip of mom-and-pop owned shops.

Melt Ice Creams makes house-made waffles and seasonal sundaes that will knock your socks off. In addition to the traditional "always flavors" like Beans, Chocolate, Salt Lick and Strawberry, the artisanal ice cream shop dishes out a "Sometimes Flavors" that rotate every six weeks.

Though you won't have time to complete our entire Fort Worth Ale Trail, you can definitely visit a favorite or two. Rahr & Sons Brewing Company offers tours and tastings twice a week while most of the others operate taprooms open 7-days a week.

There are dozens of bakeries, wine shops, barbecue stops and more along the way. But if you're looking for funky-cool, Cannon Chinese Kitchen is your spot. Traditional-inspired Chinese cuisine prepared from scratch is served inside a restored 1920s home baring striking wallpaper and plush furniture. This restaurant is sensational in every way. Enjoy your meal on the patio or to-go.
