Texas – 3 Days – Fort Worth, Dallas and Grapevine

Texas is more than just cowboys and oil rigs,  some of the most amazing galleries and museums can be found in the cities of Texas.  Dallas Fort Worth Airport is the 4th busiest airport in the US so there is a good chance you will be routed through there at some point. More and more it’s a gateway to the country from abroad.  The Fort Worth, Dallas, Grapevine area has so much to offer that it’s a crime not to allow at least 3 days to take in the regions culture, old towns, unique history and of course Barbeque!  You will be richly rewarded.

 To-Do Check List 

Fort Worth

Five wonderful museums in a park setting

 

Evening – Historic Fort Worth Stockyards, Cowboy Hall of Fame, Texas BBQ, Rodeo and the world’s Largest Honky-Tonk.

 

Grapevine

Visit the Grapevine Visitor Information Center, if only to enjoy the historic building.

Head for restored Downtown Grapevine, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

At Harvest Hall visit the observation tower for a 360 degree of the area.

Keep the afternoon free to follow the Grapevine Urban Wine Trail – it’s in the name after all.     Allow 4 hours and pick a tour that includes dinner.

 

Dallas

Synonymous with the assassination of JFK  – The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, formerly the Texas School Book Depository, does a great job describing the period preceding the fateful day in November 1963 and the events of the day itself.

 

 

 

Texas does everything big, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the largest art museum in the USA with 25,000 pieces.

 

If you are in Dallas on a weekend and The Dallas Cowboys are playing it’s a must.
