For Ft. Worth Natives Only, What Kind of neighborhood is Motel 6 in?

by mesolo

This Motel 6 is located at 1-35W at Alta Mesa Blvd., Exit #44, 6600 So. Freeway.

I'm on a strict budget and don't want to spend a lot on a motel room, it's approx. 7 mi. from downtown Ft. Worth and 29 mi. from DFW airport. I'll be renting a car and will also be visiting Dallas for a day.

I need to know if it's a safe middle class neighborhood or it's in a ghetto or barrio? I don't want to be mugged coming home late at night. or see a lot of homeless people running around.

Please advise.

That's a relatively safe location. You won't get mugged, but if you are not from around here... it might seem a bit unsavory. I think there are some liquor stores close by... and the population is a mix of Hispanics and Caucasians (slightly further south of I-35 gets you into the fringe area of rural and urban expansion where more "country" white folks live).

You are very close to downtown... but you might be able to find a better location for a little more money. Have you looked into anything on University Drive? I think there's a Ramada right off I-30. You are seconds from downtown, the zoo, numerous parks, TCU, shopping, restaurants, etc.

Motel 6 isn't bad (a nicer Holiday Inn is right across the highway). For your brief stay, you'd be fine here... but look into that Ramada, if possible. You can do a lot within walking distance.

Thanks for the advice...but it's a little late, I went to TX in April and wound up staying at a very nice Super 8 in Irving. Had no problems whatsoever!

Celebrated classical pianist Van Cliburn is a long-time resident of Ft Worth and brings a premier piano competition here every four years.

Catwoman made her home in Ft Worth for a few years. Julie Newmar lived just off Forest Park Blvd, near the zoo. She was the original Catwoman.

"Machine Gun" Kelly spent a lot of time in Ft Worth, and even met his 2nd wife here. They tended to hide out at their house on Mulkey St. George "Machine Gun" Kelly was encouraged by his first wife Kathryn Thorne go become heavily involved in crime, she even bought him a machine gun (hence the name). His concentration was on running illegal alcohol but also robbed some banks prior to being involved in the Urschel kidnapping. Urschel was one of Oklahoma's most affluent oil barons. He was released unharmed.

Cowtown Cattlepen Maze

by grandmaR

I do not know whether this is a Must See, Off the Beaten Track or a Tourist Trap, because I have not done it.

You pay $4.95 (for an adult) or $3.25 (for children 5-12) and get to try to find your way through a wooden maze made up of over 5,400 square feet of frequently changed wooden pathways, resembling the cattlepens of the old west. They apparently have races and other games with prizes.

The ticket booth is beside the water tank across from the Stockyard Station, and there is a second-story observation deck gives a place to watch people try the maze along with a vista of the entire Stockyards area.

I put an inset in of the side of the maze because it doesn't look very big from the street.

Won't Believe Your Eyes!

by Yaqui

This is the Tarrant Civil Court House designed by Fort Worth Architect Wyatt C. Hedrick's. Yet later, 1988, Architect George C.T. Woo was hired to put a facade on the building. It has painted facades that makes it looks like it has texture and depth. The painted designs on this building give it a 3D effect. From a distance it looks like it has actual stone facade when it doesn't. It impressed me.

Located at 100 N. Houston . Next to the Tarrant County Court House.

Chocolates For Savoring

by VeronicaG about Schakolad Chocolate Factory

On a recent weekend, we popped into Schakolad Chocolate Factory after traveling to Ft.Worth. Once the front door opened, the wondrous aroma of chocolate wrapped itself around us and pulled us to the glass case, where all sorts of luscious confections were waiting.

I spied a mini-chocolate cowboy hat (picture 2) for a couple dollars that I wanted to try. Ummm, it was so creamy and delicious! I'm afraid this will be a frequent stop for this 'chocoholic' when traveling to Sundance Square.

The store specializes in handmade European-style chocolates. as well as, sugar free and low carb chocolates, wedding favors, custom chocolate designs, wedding favors and gift baskets. Stop by for a taste of the 'divine'. Their motto is "chocolate to live by".

Hours are Mon.-Thurs. 10am-7pm; Fri. & Sat. 10am-9pm and Sun. 1pm-5pm. Everything chocolate formed and filled moderately priced
