Visit Fort Worth - Best of Fort Worth

This is the 5th largest city of Texas that lies in the Prairies and lakes region of the state. The city is also sometimes called by the name of Cowtown because of its cowboy roots. The neighboring cities are Dallas and Arlington. The city grew from being a military camp to being the center of the cattle industry and finally transformed into the now modern city. Another name given to this city is “The Hell’s Half Acre”. This is because of the shootouts that were once common in the Cultural and Business Districts of the city, something that is thankfully not a part of sightseeing today.

This historical city has been very successful in conserving its glorious history of centuries. You will be mesmerized when you visit the historical museums here. The collections will just take you back into time and you will feel like you are transferred in to some other world altogether. The town square and the city centers are also worth mentioning in the must do things list. Shopping in Fort Worth is complete bliss. The friendly people, bright shops and cheerful streets will definitely bring a smile on your face.
