From Dallas to Houston to San Antonio, Texas is home to some of the most appealing cities in the United States, but one that may sometimes get overlooked is Fort Worth. This bustling hub of western heritage is just large enough to give visitors the big city experience while still offering a welcoming ambiance that will have people eager to come back.
While it may not be commonly thought of as a big sports town, Fort Worth is home to one of the best college football programs in the country, Texas Christian University. The Horned Frogs have made a name for themselves over the last decade and are consistently in the conversation for top tier teams, unseating some historical powerhouses in the process. TCU plays its home games in the friendly confines of Amon G. Carter Stadium. The arena has been growing steadily ever since it first opened its doors more than 80 years ago, and now hold around 44,000 spectators. These days, there's nothing quite like taking in a game at the stadium when its fans are all decked out in black and purple.
While TCU is the flagship sports team in Fort Worth, the city is certainly not lacking when it comes to cultural offerings as well. There are a number of well-known theaters located within its limits, but perhaps the best place to catch a play is the Casa Mañana. Built in 1958, the popular stage has hosted plenty of popular musicals and plays including The Fantasticks, Damn Yankees and Mamma Mia.
The city also has plenty to offer in terms of art and history, and checking out any number of the institutions, including the Amon Carter Museum of American Art or the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame are both excellent choices.
Those looking to take in some of the more natural offerings this eastern Texas enclave has to offer will want to check out Fort Worth Zoo, which is often regarded as one of the top such institutions in the South. Opened in 1909, the zoo is home to more than 430 species of animals and will certainly pique the interest of even the most casual wildlife enthusiast.
Whether looking to revel in the impressive string of winning seasons put together by TCU or simply hoping to indulge in some Texas culture, Fort Worth has something for everyone.
