About Fort Worth
Now known as the cultural gateway into the American West, Fort Worth went from sleepy outpost to bustling town when it became a central stop along the legendary Chisholm Trail, the dusty path on which millions of head of cattle were driven north to market. Though "Cowtown" once was rough-and-tumble, dusty and lawless, home to the brave and the brawling, the soldier, the frontiersman and the outlaw (including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!), today it is the one of the largest cities in Texas and the 16th-largest in the country. In celebration of its rich heritage, drovers in authentic 19th-century gear riding horses mounted with period correct saddles drive "The Herd" of longhorns twice daily along East Exchange Avenue, harking back to a time when the great herds rumbled through the dusty streets of Fort Worth on their way to market.
Fort Worth today is shaped by a commitment to its downtown revitalization and urban renewal, a dedication to its world-renowned cultural arts district, rich pride in its western heritage and a loyalty to major-league sports and attractions such as the top-ranked Fort Worth Zoo, Sundance Square, and the Texas Motor Speedway. It is home to five world-class museums designed by world-class architects in a park-like green space within walking distance of each other. The Kimbell Art Museum Is considered to have one of the best collections in Texas housed in one of the state's foremost works of modern architecture. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Amon Carter Museum (which houses one of the most extensive collections of American art in the world), the Museum of Science and History with its Omni Theater, and the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame round out the five. Also calling Fort Worth home are Texas Christian University, Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, Pier One, Radio Shack, famed chef Tim Love's Lonesome Dove and Woodshed restaurants, and the longtime favorite haunt of locals and tourists alike, Joe T. Garcia's Mexican eatery.
