Fun

August 2019
Hope your summer is going great!
We hope our last blog with indoor activities in Fort Worth was useful! Now we are two months into the summer, which means summertime is coming to an end! Before it ends, we have gathered some outdoor activities that are affordable, fun, and great to do as a couple or with friends and family. Don't let summer fun, go to waste!

Check out this outdoor activity list:

 

  1. Visit the Fort Worth Stockyards 

Take a step into the Wild West and walk along the original brick walkways that put Fort Worth on the map. It's got great restaurants if you're looking for a BBQ lunch or a Mexican dinner and if you visit during the day - bring sunscreen! Remember no visit is complete until you watch a cattle drive, held every day at 11:30 AM and 4:00 PM!

 

  1. Bike around the Trinity River

Right across from the Botanical Gardens lies the most popular start to the trinity river trails. If you don't have a bike, no worries- there are plenty of places to find a rental. If you're bringing the kids along, right near this area, there's a playground and a famous Fort Worth pond full of ducks!

 

  1. Visit Magnolia street

A hugely popular street filled with local shops and restaurants, Magnolia Street, boasts both classic architecture and new shopping. For all beer lovers, there is a very exquisite restaurant-bar called The Bearded Lady, perfect for day or night drink, along with more than a few breweries very close by. You can find great Tex-Mex and Thai food and if you need a great brunch place to start your day, definitely try out Brewed where the deliciousness hits home and their decor has you feeling like you're favorite Pinterest board. To cool off from the Texas heat, stop by and grab some delicious Ice Cream at Melt!

 

  1. Watch a movie at the drive-in

Just outside of Downtown Fort Worth, you will find the Coyote Drive-In Theater & Canteen! Where its open Rain or shine at 5:30 PM daily! Perfect for all ages.

 

  1. Fort Worth Zoo

The zoo will take up your whole morning and part of your afternoon, the zoo recently added a new interactive exhibit with Stingrays! You can get up close and touch a variety of stingrays and feed them! On Wednesdays the zoo admission is half-price! Parking is $5.

 

  1. Botanical and Japanese Gardens

Texas weather is bipolar; however, when there is sunshine, visit the Botanic Gardens, where 90% is free. Be inspired by the beauty of plants and landscapes around. For only $7, you can visit the Japanese Garden where you will meet tranquility with the beauty of the landscapes, cherry trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, bamboos, and wonderfully winding paths.

 

  1. Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge

Not many know, but this gem is comprised of forests, prairies, and wetlands. The purpose is to get the feel of what Fort Worth was like in the early 20th century. This center covers 3612 acres and includes over 20 miles of hiking trails!! If you are lucky when walking around the boardwalk off the trinity river, you could spy a gator!

 

We hope you enjoy these few places this summer! If you come across some free time, most of these activities are near our Red Door Fort Worth location at the Montgomery Plaza.
