Not much time to spend in Fort Worth? Hit some of our major highlights in only a couple of days. 

DAY 1

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 its own bar. 

Walk, jog, bike, or horseback ride on the 70-mile-long Trinity Trails that follow the Trinity River through many popular spots around the city. These trails are dog and family-friendly. 

Is there any place in Fort Worth that’s more fun, funky, and pet- and pedestrian-friendly than Magnolia Avenue? Do some shopping, get some lunch or ride a Fort Worth Bike Share bicycle down this street where there is always something new and fun. 

Melt Ice Creams has house-made waffles and seasonal sundaes will knock your socks off. In addition to the traditional "always flavors" like Beans (vanilla), Chocolate Chocolate, Salt Lick (caramel), etc., the artisanal ice cream shop dishes out a "Sometimes Flavors" that rotate.

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 twice a week, once on Wednesdays from 5 to 7:30pm and Saturdays from 1 to 3pm. There is a $10 fee for anyone over 18. Visitors 21-and-up receive a Rahr & Sons pint glass and three fills of beer for no charge.

Cannon Chinese Kitchen serves traditional-inspired Chinese cuisine with an emphasis on the freshest ingredients prepared from scratch. Set in a restored 1920s home, striking wallpaper and plush furniture, this restaurant is sensational in every way.

 

DAY 2

Spend the morning downtown and head over to Sundance Square. You can drink coffee and watch the fountains in the plaza. 

Enjoy unparalleled Western heritage in the Stockyards National Historic District as the world's only twice-daily cattle drive passes you by.

Have lunch at the world's largest Tex Mex restaurant. The gorgeously landscaped grounds at Joe T. Garcia’s make it a great spot to enjoy their traditional Mexican food. All the food is served family-style and the atmosphere is festive and fun. 

Spend the afternoon perusing one of Fort Worth's five internationally recognized museums in the Cultural District.  Enjoy the oldest museum in Texas, the Modern Art Museum. The art presented, collected and interpreted here depicts media developments post-World War II. 

Concerts at Billy Bob’s Texas are a great way to spend your last night in Fort Worth. National acts, regional favorites, line dance lessons, and even a Lone Star Murder Mystery await this summer at the world’s largest honky-tonk.
