As summer draws to a close and fall begins, the Texas heat recedes (ever so slightly) and folks in the Dallas-Fort Worth area leave the shelter of their air-conditioned homes to once again explore all that their state has to offer. Here are five things to do in Fort Worth this fall.
Hang out in the Fort Worth Stockyards
Take a trip back in time to the Old West at the Fort Worth stockyards district and visit the stables, rodeo, and opry for some old-fashioned entertainment. While you’re there, grab some barbecue at Riscky’s.
Relax at Grapevine Lake
Just a handful of miles northeast of Fort Worth is Grapevine Lake, an 8,000-acre reservoir perfect for a weekend of fishing, boating, hiking, hunting, and camping out. Bring the family along, or get some peace and quiet.
Explore the Fort Worth Zoo
Listed as one of the top zoos in the nation by USA Today, the Fort Worth Zoo is home to over 7,000 native and exotic animals. It houses several engaging exhibits like Raptor Canyon, Meerkat Mounds, and Flamingo Bay.
Walk the Fort Worth Botanic Garden
Open daily, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden protects over 2,500 species of plants in its 21 specialty gardens, including the Japanese Garden, Rock Springs, and the 10,000-acre tropical Conservatory.
Thrill-seek at Six Flags
Six Flags Over Texas is the perfect destination for a day of family fun. The park features the tallest and fastest roller coasters in Texas, plus other attractions and smaller rides for young ones.
