Fort Worth, Texas - is the fifth-largest city in the state of Texas located in North Central Texas, and a cultural gateway into the American West. The city was established in 1849 as an Army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. Today Fort Worth still embraces its Western heritage and traditional architecture and design. Fort Worth is home to the Kimbell Art Museum, considered to have one of the best collections in Texas, and housed in what is widely regarded as one of Texas' foremost works of modern architecture. Also of note are the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Amon Carter Museum, the latter of which houses one of the most extensive collections of American art in the world, in a building designed by Philip Johnson. The city is also home to Texas Christian University, Texas Wesleyan University, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas A&M University School of Law, and many multinational corporations including Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, Radio Shack, and others.
Board the Tarantula Train, named for the spidery look of an early map of its route, to travel from the Grapevine Vintage Railroad to the Stockyards National Historic District. If you don't have a hankering for cowboy culture, enjoy diverse restaurants, cultural institutions and sporting events. Entertaining the kids is easy, courtesy of Six Flags Over Texas, the Noble Planetarium and Museum of Science and History.
