    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are headed to Fort Worth in September, you are coming on the tail end of the summer time. It will not be nearly as hot as July and August, but you will definitely need to be ready for the warmth. It is also the middle of potential hurricane season, so based on the weather report, there might be a higher chance of rain/thunderstorms. I would recommend packing for very warm weather, and also throw in some sort of light rain coat just in case.

    Also, Fort Worth is very condusive to walking, especially in the museum district and the Stockyards, so bring some comfortable walking shoes, and enjoy the sunshine!

    Be ready for some heat

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even in late September Ft. Worth was still quite hot, in the low 90s, it seems to be a fairly casual city so I was fine with capri pants and nice tops for dinner. Pack light colored clothes, it really makes a difference in how hot you feel. It gets a little cooler at night but I never needed more than a short sleeved shirt.

    We didn't have a drop of rain so I was fine in sandals the entire trip. But I also packed an umbrella and light sweater just in case, after all it is still hurricane season in September

    Bring a hat if you don't want your head to scorch

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen

    Miscellaneous: I brought a water bottle from home, saved me from having to buy bottled water while out touring.

    Postcard from one of our favorite destinations....

    Miscellaneous: I love to send postcards when we travel, but sometimes forget the stamps. Pick up some beforehand and it will be so much easier to share a little of your trip with friends or family back home if you are traveling domestically!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In FW around June or so is when it gets really hot(80s-100s) so if you are traveling to FW around that time you should take loose cloths. In any case you should take a pair or shorts etc, you can never be to sure about North Texas weather.

    Miscellaneous: If you are going to be doing alot of walking then the 2 main things you need to have is Bug Spray & Sunscreen!!!!

    Luggage and bags: Whatever you usually take.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the summer make sure you bring light clothes shorts,tank tops tee shirts... Because it gets HOT here from june till september. 100+ degrees or better sometimes. The winter is usually mild but it can get pretty chilly in a heartbeat so bring a big coat and warm clothes.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Fort Worth has many lakes within driving distance.(Benbrook,Eagle Mountain,Lake Worth)All of these places have campsites and boat docks available. All have pretty good fishing.

    Miscellaneous: Sun Block is always a good thing.
