sightseeing on the way to Fort Worth

by ohsobright

Hi, we want to drive to Fort Worth when we are over in Austin. can anyone tell me the best route to take, any places worth seeing to stop at en route?
Thanks

Re: sightseeing on the way to Fort Worth

Well, you can see that the fastest route is up I-35 straight into Ft. Worth. Except for the huge amount of traffic on the highway and the seemingly never-ending construction, that should be a breeze ;-)

However, if you are not in a hurry, you can look for wineries near Austin and for nature near Glen Rose and Granbury.

Look at http://www.texaswinetrail.com/index.html and find the map...you will see that there are a number of wineries west of Austin...in addition, this is an attractive (for Texas) area to drive through.

Once you have done with that, drive north through a series of small towns (the "real" Texas) in the direction of Glen Rose. Glen Rose is known for several things:
(1) Comanche Peak nuclear power plant (unfortunately, tours are only during the week by appointment),
(2) Dinosaur State Park where - somewhat unbelievably - you can actually walk in the dinosaur footsteps - take shoes that you don't mind getting wet, since the footprints are in the river bottom - see http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/dinosaur_valley/ ,
(3) Fossil Rim - a very large outdoor preserve that you can drive through with a lot of large, non-native critters,
(4) Big Rocks Park - the rocks really aren't that big, but the cool Paluxy River becomes shallow at this point passing over and through the rocks, and it is a great place to stick your feet in the water on a hot Texas day.

Then drive up to Granbury, which is known for being "cute" as well as becoming housing for lake people and long-distance commuters to Ft. Worth.

There - you now have enough stuff to do for several days ;-)

Travel Tips for Fort Worth

Lilies or Angel Trumpets?

by pedersdottir

The facade of the Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth is decorated in 48' high limestone sculptures. Each of these Herald Angels is sending a silent note heavenward, blowing on long, slender trumpets.

In the middle of the residential quad at Texas Christian University we came across this memorial fountain. At first glance, the structures looked like water lilies rising from an azure pool. And yet somehow they echo the angels' trumpets, too.

Parking in Downtown

by keeweechic

There are several parking garages/lots in the downtown area and parking is free after 5.pm and on weekends.

4th & Main Street, Chisholm Trail
4th & Houston, Gateway Lot
4th & Throckmorton, Sundance Square Garage 3
Calhoun & 3rd, City Center Garage 2
Calhoun & 3rd, City Center Lot
Calhoun & 2nd City Center Garage 1
3rd & Main St, ½ Flying Saucer Lot

Parking Meters : Parking on meters is free after 6 p.m. weekdays and on Saturdays, Sundays and the following holidays and free to those with disabled veteran license plates or a handicap permit. Meters have either a two-hour time limit or a ten-hour time limit. The two-hour meters are located in areas where parking demand is higher and the need for parking turnover is greater. Meter rates vary from .75 to .20 an hour in the downtown area.

Minor Leagues

by btex

Fort Worth has a few minor league sports teams: Fort Worth Cats and Fort Worth Brahmas and Texas Rim Rockers. The Cats are a minor-league baseball team. They get overshadowed by the Texas Rangers, but with the way the Rangers play sometimes, the Cats might be a good alternative.

The Ft. Worth Brahmas are a minor league hockey team. Yeah, I think it's kind of strange to have hockey teams in warm weather places too. But, they usually find a way to keep the ice from melting. There was a minor league team in Dallas too...until the Stars moved to town. The Brahmas play at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

There's also a minor league basketball team called the Texas Rim Rockers. They play in the USBL and are a new franchise...the Rockers seem to be having some trouble...so they might not be around too much longer. They play from April to June - home games at the Sid Richardson Center at Texas Wesleyan University.

I will tell you I have not...

by brdwtchr

I will tell you I have not been inside of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. I saw the building for it when I was at the Science Museum and the Amon Carter Museum. It is located in between the two. It is on Montgomery Street just south of Amon Carter. Like many of the museums in Fort Worth it is closed on Mondays so keep that in mind if you are a big fan of contemporary art.

Iron Furniture

by grandmaR about Rustic Iron

This guy set up on Exchange street and put his wares out on the curb. I don't know where he is from (although the phone area code is San Antonio) and I can't find anything on the internet about him.
