Fort Worth Zoo

Another staple family outing is the zoo. The Fort Worth Zoo is a sprawling adventure full of the wonder and awe of the animal kingdom. Get up close and personal with the beasts of the forests, oceans, and plains, as well as so animals you don’t get to see very often like Komodo Dragons! You can now also explore the newly opened African Savanna and experience elephants, giraffes, and hippos much closer than at a normal zoo. The Fort Worth Zoo also offers tons of educational guided tours, camps, overnight stays, and loads of monthly and yearly events including Halloween events!

This is a prime example of a living museum. You can watch the Fort Worth Herd be driven twice daily, the only herd in the world with twice daily cattle drives. You can also shop at antique stores, gift shops, art and home decor stores, and many more. If you’d like to stay the weekend, you can do so at one of the hotels or bed and breakfast locations around the area or even at the Stockyards RV Park. There are also plenty of great places to eat in the stockyards, including some excellent BBQ joints. If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure with a bit of a different flair to it, the Fort Worth Stockyars are a great choice.
