Where the West Begins

Advertising itself as the place where the American West begins, Fort Worth stubbornly clings to its cowboy roots, making it a distinctly different town from most other urban centers of its size. The city grew from a military camp established in 1849 that quickly became a major shipping and supply depot for local cattlemen. The city is unmistakably modern, though it continues to embrace its western heritage through a blend of traditional architecture and popular tourist attractions, including mini cattle drives, weekend rodeos, and museums honoring the early pioneers who settled this area. Experience the spirit of the Old West on a tour of the city's downtown area, a 35-block shopping, dining, and entertainment district named after infamous outlaw the Sundance Kid. Our United States vacation route planner allows you to plan your trip to Fort Worth and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Fort Worth

Fort Worth features a good mix of affordable hotels, with a wide selection of western-flavored motels and bed & breakfasts. You can find comfortable accommodations in any part of the city, but if you wish to stay close to most of its major attractions, book your stay in or near the Cultural District.
