Man The Fort! The Surprising Nature Of Fort Worth

Once upon a time, Fort Worth was nothing more than just a small town. Yet, where both the outlaw cowboys and businessman would come to do a trade. They would sell food, water, horses, guns and liquor from this outpost. Eventually, the town became a city and now it’s got inhabitants of around 880,000 people. For many years this city was treated as the gateway to the further western states, and therefore known as the ‘where the west begins’. You can see why as there is a mixture of lush green vegetation and barren desert where the hot baking sun takes no prisoners. Since it is Texas, you will have plenty of choice for Mexican cuisine. There are literally thousands of restaurants with some of the best authentic cuisines you can find in all of Texas. They are situated in among the city where some of the financial buildings meet with the new housing complexes.

Six Flags over Texas

In this state, they are prepared to tell you the truth about what they want. They want big thrills and that is possible at Six Flags Over Texas. It’s a huge 200-acre space with rollercoasters and fun carnival rides. Gotham City is by far the biggest attraction piece of the whole park. Here you will find the twisting and zooming nature of the Batman ride. There are unique themes of different characters in the various rides such as the bumper cars in Joker style. There’s also a slew of fun games you can play such as trying to squirt gun the right side of Two-Face’s head. As you can imagine, there’s also a ride and an educational hotspot for the oil industry. Texas is filled with some of the largest oil fields in America so the tall but fake oil well is something to see.

A place to gaze

After a day of thrills, you might want to take it easy for a day. Head over to the Kimbell Art Museum. The building itself is a great feat of engineering and architecture. However inside you can find some still life art pieces, as well as educational installations about the local wildlife and history of the city.
