    It is a must visit if you are in Texas. The cowboy town. There’s cattle parade twice a day and only 5min walk so don’t miss the timing - 11.30am and 4pm daily.

    Must also take the chance to watch bullfighting show. Where’s else can you see live bullfighting?

    This is a very good zoo. A lot of effort is made to mimic the animals natural habitat, yet you can get pretty close to some of them. The enclosures are larger than other zoos I have visited. There is plenty of information about conservation and the animals.

    The paths are walkable and not overly strenuous. My only real complaint is that strollers and wagons get in the way, so perhaps stroller parking should be made available and enforced.

    The Texas area includes a very large children’s area.

    I arrived before opening time, and there was already a long line to get in. When I left, it looked like parking was a nightmare.

    I have mixed feelings about zoos. I do have concerns about the animals being out of their larger natural habitat, but value the education provided.

    The Kimbell is an excellent art museum in Fort Worth’s cultural district. Go early and you can usually catch a parking spot in their underground parking garage. They have a nice permanent exhibit and have featured some phenomenal rotating exhibitions in recent years, including Monet, Renoir and most recently Bonnard. Audio tours are available via their app and your smartphone for an extra fee so bring your ear buds. The special exhibits are half price on Tuesdays.

    Beautiful gardens, even in the colder months. The Japanese garden and koi pond is a must-see. Be prepared for lots of walking - there is also a shuttle bus to take you around the gardens but there can be a long wait at some stops.

    We went to the Ft. Worth Symphony last night. The auditorium was perfect, the service and drink bar were flawless. The Strauss and the Tchaikovsky pieces were inspired. The modern piece, while executed well by the orchestra, was simply dark and depressing. We don’t pay to hear dark and depressing. We are not masochists. Do not do this again. I don’t care if you are married to the conductor. Get outside, see nature, lighten up.

    This is one of the nicest, friendliest museums in the nation. It's all American art of the finest quality in a gorgeous building. Visit and revisit your faves from Georgie O'Keeffe to the most obscure and know that you're surrounded by premier work. Add Remington's sculptures and Russell's paintings for a touch of cowboy art, and just relax and be prepared to be happy. Good for all ages and all levels of art appreciation!

    Visiting the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing offered an intriguing glimpse into the production of U.S. currency. The building itself is quite interesting, housing the impressive feat of producing 60% of all U.S. paper currency.

    The tour begins with a 21-minute video, which, although somewhat dated, provides a good introduction to the currency production process. The shift from person-guided tours to a self-guided format using a wand for audio at each of the nine stops is a notable change. While informative, the audio segments felt a bit lengthy, but they did offer detailed insights into each stage of currency production.

    The real highlight came after the audio tour, with the exhibits. These were engaging and offered a deeper dive into the intricacies of currency design, security features, and the historical evolution of U.S. banknotes. These exhibits were not only educational but also visually interesting, making the latter part of the visit particularly enjoyable.

    Overall, the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing is worth a visit for those interested in the behind-the-scenes workings of currency production. While the self-guided tour might require a bit of patience, the wealth of information and fascinating exhibits make it a rewarding experience.

    This was a gorgeous morning to afternoon trip. Even with some plants in their mid-winter phase, we loved the origami flowers and decor. Quite a nice walk. Had our cameras going in every little area. The cafe on premises was a bit overpriced and underwhelming, but you are allowed to bring your own food and drinks in- will do that next time. The indoor tropical garden greenhouse was phenomenal. We went with our 9 year old daughter, and I worried she might get bored, but she found something she liked in every area. Oh! Our GPS tried to take us through some closed streets, so we got a little turned around getting to the garden, but just go to the botanical garden center to park.

    With the Kimbell Museum and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, it forms the third leg of the powerhouse art heart of Texas. It also has a fantastic restaurant.

    This was a nice speedway. The grounds were clean, and the views of the race were awesome. There are ample food and drink choices available. My only complaint is that they funneled the whole crowd out one entrance at the end although that route did put us directly on I-35W south which is what we needed. It was a long road and a long wait to get out though.
