Although the city is often paired with Dallas, Fort Worth vacation packages can help you discover all that Fort Worth, Texas, has to offer on its own. Fort Worth has grown into a bustling city, but it once served as an Army outpost, and its Western heritage is proudly displayed for all to see and experience. Check yourself into one of the hotels in Downtown Fort Worth and start enjoying a quintessential Fort Worth vacation.
Start in the Stockyards National Historic District, where you can watch the Fort Worth Herd—a Longhorn cattle drive that takes place twice each day. Visit the Stockyards Museum, housed in the former Livestock Exchange Building, to learn everything you ever needed to know about the cattle trade. Kids will love the Exploratorium at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, while the kid in you will love the Old West wagon collection it houses. Hotels near Downtown Fort Worth get you close to Sundance Square, a 35-block area full of shopping and entertainment. JFK buffs shouldn't miss the JFK Tribute in General Worth Square, which marks the place where the president addressed a crowd of well-wishers before being assassinated later in Dallas.
Cheap hotels in Downtown Fort Worth are surrounded by a bevy of restaurants and bars serving a large variety of foods. Sample carnitas, smoked brisket, juicy steaks, and a plethora of BBQ ribs in and around Sundance Square. Some even serve wild game, like antelope and venison. Back in the Stockyards, you can find some active nightlife with Western dancing and indoor bull riding, along with a fair share of saloons.
