Fort Worth, Texas



Fort Worth would not be Fort Worth without the stockyards on the west side of downtown. Every day they drive a herd of longhorns through the streets. You'll find everything western here from rodeo to saloons to jelly beans the size of Texas. Armadillos race at the stockyards.


Water Gardens


Water Gardens

What better to have right beside the Convention Center than a Water Garden that you can walk down into to cool and refresh between those conference meetings. Yes, you can play with the water, listen to it rushing, and feel its coolness -- right there in the middle of downtown Fort Worth..


Fort Worth has some of the best Museums in the Country -- and it has a lot of them. You will find everything from museums devoted to Stockyards to Cowgirls to American Airlines C. R. Smith to one devoted to Ballet.

One of my favorite museums is the Amon Carter the entrance of which is pictured to the right. This museum is devoted to American art created from 1830 to the present.

You will find works by western artists Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell; scupture, painter and mobile creator Alexander Calder; and painter of the Southwest Georgia O'Keefe.
