Fort Worth: Where the West Begins
Fort Worth is not only the seventh-largest city in the United States, but it also the fifth-largest city in the state of Texas. Fort Worth is a cultural hub and home to several world-class museums, including the Kimbell Art Museum, which is considered to have one of the best art collections in Texas, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and Amon Carter Museum of American Art. Education and job opportunities abound in its 350 square miles: the city is the home of Texas Christian University (TCU), Lockheed Martin, and American Airlines. After a day at the office or in class, it will be easy to find something fun to do with the city's abundance of indoor and outdoor activities. Even if you want to escape for the weekend, Arlington is only a mere thirty minutes away, making any impromptu getaway a realistic possibility! From the International Bowling Museum & Hall of Fame to The Parks Mall at Arlington, you will find something worthwhile at every corner of Fort Worth and its neighboring city.
