Sundance Square Tips (7)

Sundance Square

Rightfully named after the Sundance Kid, it is a place of history where they use to drive the cattle right through the downtown area to the stockyards. This place has lots of charm and things to see. This is the dowtown district that you can see way off in the distance. I always know when I am close and know how to get here because these buildings are so evident. This is a great place to shop, eat, explore some wonderful art galleries, museums, and party. Some really cool night clubs are here. Plus some really cool movie theatre too! And you know what? A pretty safe place to visit because security here is 24/7 too. The businesses downtown hired their own security force and they work along with the Fort Worth Police department, so it is a pretty secure place to hang out and enjoy.

Sundance Square, Downtown Fort Worth

Sundance Square, named after the Sundance Kid, is the name of a square in central downtown Fort Worth, and also the name of the larger 35 block neighborhood surrounding the square. This area is sandwiched between the Convention Center and the Tarrant County Courthouse and generally runs along Main and Commerce streets. Here you can find many of the city's best hotels, great bars and restaurants, shopping, a few small parks, some historic markers, and not much parking.

Sundance Square

I like to research an area once I find it interesting! Fort Worth has many historical sites to explore and enjoy, such as Sundance Square.

The inspiration for its name was drawn from the true story of two fugitives from justice who hid there many, many years ago--Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Comprising nearly twenty blocks, there are now numerous restaurants and upscale shops, plus a few galleries (pic #4), a Barnes and Noble bookstore, Convention Center and Bass Performance Hall.

We stopped by The Thomas Kincade gallery where it was demonstrated why Kincade is known as the Painter of Light. We were also informed that the artist makes occasional appearaces in the Ft. Worth area.

There are many reminders this is cowboy territory. Western style storefronts and signs all shout: YOU'RE NOT IN THE NORTHEAST ANYMORE!!! If you click onto the additional photographs, you'll see a topiary in the shape of a Longhorn Steer ( pics#2,3 & 5).

A mighty nice feature to Sundance Square is that there is free parking after 5 pm on the weekdays and ALL weekend days and evenings.

Sundance Square

I'm not totally certain we knew where we were when we stopped in this area, but we were attracted by crowds at some kind of a celebration. I later learned (from other VTers sites, actually) that we had been at Sundance Square. Some kind of festival was in progress, and it looked like fun. I especially enjoyed the giant Chisholm Trail Mural, easily seen in this photo.

Sundance Square

Fort Worth appears to have three main areas that cater to tourism. They are; The Cultural District, the Stockyards, and Sundance Square in downtown. Here, one can see a variety of architecture from Art Deco to the modern glass skyscrapers. There are many reminders that Fort Worth is "Cowtown" in the form of murals, statues, and other features. The Bass Performance Hall is found near one corner of the square. I always like to visit the huge Barnes and Noble bookstore that spans two floors and extends for a city block. There are many clubs and restaurants all around. Parking is easy on the weekends (unless there is a major event). A lot is in the center of the square, and a large garage is nearby. Both are free on the weekends. Downtown Fort Worth has changed over the years. The square attracts many businesses and people for a visit. Almost all of the downtown sites are easily reachable from the square. There are also two movie theaters in the immediate area. One should find plenty to do here in a visit.

Down Town Fort Worth

Down town is a good place to start in Ft. Worth. Great places are all within walking distance. There are nice eating places, AMC Sundance Theater (with 11 screens), and the Sundance Square, where they have alot of outdoor entertainment.
The Art Festival is always a good event to see. Havent been to Bass Hall for a trip to the theatre, but it gets good reviews & top named people & groups.
