Stockyards National Historic District
Fort Worth is “Where the West Begins,” and you can have your first glimpse of it at the Stockyards National Historic District, about 25 miles southwest by car, where there is a weekly rodeo competition.
If you miss that, you can drive to the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame along the Exchange Avenue where you can see everything related to rodeo, ranching and Texas Western heritage.
Six Flags over Texas
Alternatively you can drive directly south to Arlington, about 15 miles away by car, for a visit at Six Flags over Texas.
At 212 acres, this theme park in Arlington is one of DFW’s largest attractions – there are rides for every age group, and all manners of entertainment, dining and shopping options.
Arlington is equidistant from both Fort Worth and Dallas, so it makes a great first stop after you arrive.
The Texas Triangle and Wine Country
The DFW region anchors the Texas Triangle to the north.
About four hours south by car from Dallas Fort Worth Airport is the city of Austin right at the heart of the Hill Country of central Texas.
A short drive from there is the wine country of Fredericksburg.
Continuing on to the east, you will come upon Houston, Lone Star state’s largest city and the fourth largest in the country.
As expected of a city its status, Houston is a huge urban sprawl and best explored by car.
Texas Parks and Outdoors
Shades of gold, rust, red and green do not come easily to mind when Texas is mentioned, but if you come between mid-October to mid-November, you will enjoy this magical spectacle at the Lost Maples State Natural Area three hours south of the Texas Triangle via Austin.
There are about 11 miles of hiking trails through Uvalde maple trees and deep limestone canyons, and a good number of lodgings within a comfortable drive.
If you are into horseback-riding, cycling, kayaking or tubing down the river, the park is an excellent escape from the hustle of nearby cities.
But if you are yearning for authentic Tex-Mex, San Antonio is only four and a half hours southwest via Austin – so there’s plenty to see and do in the Lone Star State!
