Spring is the perfect time of year to get out of the house and enjoy what Fort Worth has to offer! I am so happy to share some of these wonderful, yet affordable, and educational ideas—right in the heart of “cow town”! So, grab the kids and head out for a full day of fun and adventure!
- Fort Worth Botanic Gardens
Home of the oldest garden in Texas, you will find a beautiful shaded oasis of over 2,500 species of native and exotic plants and flowers that flourish on around 110 acres of land. With so much to see, this creates the most perfect— and colorful way to spend the afternoon!
Tip: Many people choose to reserve some space for special events, call ahead to be sure you will have full access to the property.
- Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
Not only does this museum offer some incredible permanent exhibits, they also have some wonderful special exhibits—along with “hands on” activities that are just great for the kids! Be sure to check out the Omni Theater for an awesome visual experience before you leave!
Tip: Please visit their website for more info and show times.
- Monnig Meteorite Gallery at TCU
Located right on the Texas Christian University campus, in the Sid Richardson Science building— the Monnig Meteorite Gallery offers one of the largest university based collections in the world! What an excellent opportunity to spend the day exploring the mysteries of meteorites!
Tip: Please visit their website to view the academic calendar and public hours.
- Stockyards Station
Stockyards Station provides so many exciting things to do and see—with the perfect blend of old and new Texas culture; you can take a walk on historic tours along the Texas Trail of Fame, Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and more! Not to mention, there are over two dozen shops to browse and some of the best Texas grub you can find!
Tip: Be sure to come hungry and wear comfortable shoes!
Fun, little excursions such as these are an easy way to create priceless memories with your family. Where are some places your family likes to go?
