Things to do in... Fort Worth


I often get asked about things to do here in Fort Worth, Tx. People ask for new date night spots (I ask others too..haha), family outings, etc. I am going to do my very best today to give you ideas and my favorite spots in Fort Worth. I have lived here in the area my entire life. Things have changed a lot throughout the years though.

What are my favorite spots in Fort Worth?

I have to start with one of my very favorite spots to have Mexican food: Joe T. Garcia's. I love this place so much, they have indoor seating and a huge outdoor area. It is beautifully landscaped, covered in plants, flowers, trees, water features--it's so nice outside. There are heaters in the winter--I think one per table or two. At dinner time, they have two options on the menu: Fajitas or enchiladas. I like both of these, but my personal favorite is the beef fajitas. You must get margaritas--they are one of my favorites. This spot is good for date nights, large gatherings, kids are more than welcomed also. It's a great place! I must add that it is cash only, so bring cash or they have an ATM.

I recommend the chicken fajitas, the swirl margaritas, and the chimichanga. You must ask for jalapeƱo ranch to dip your chips in. If you go during happy hour, they have a car set up with free queso, nachos and some other things! One of our favorite family or date night places. 

This restaurant offers brick oven pizzas, gourmet salads, entrees, sandwiches, and craft beers. Very fun, unique place to go. 

This restaurant has great burgers with a wide variety of different ones, onion rings, beers.

It offers a wide variety of entrees, beers and a full bar. They also serve brunch on the weekends. Great little spot for date nights or family outings. 

Looking for something sweet after dinner or just because? We really enjoy Sweet Sammies--they have ice cream and cookies. You can get one or both. You can create a cookie sandwich with your choice of cookie and ice cream. It's the best. 

This is a little place with indoor seating or a few benches outside to eat on. There is also chalk and a wall for the kids to draw on. They have different flavors each day, some are very unique and different.  Our personal favorite is the chocolate chip cookie dough. 

Looking for something light and refreshing--Steel City Pops! They are gourmet popsicles They have fruity popsicles, creamy and different featured flavors. 

Looking for places without the kids? 

This is by far one of our favorite date night places! We also go for special occasions--birthdays, anniversaries... You start with an amazing salad bar complete with all sorts of choices, soup, rice, black beans and potato au gratin. They bring around different types of meat and you can get them all or just a couple. My husband's favorite place to eat hands down. 

Perfect for date night or any special occasion--it is delicious!

We like to go here on date nights either before dinner for drinks and an appetizer or after dinner for drinks. We really enjoy getting the cheese board and wines. You can get a flight, glass or bottle. We love this little spot. 

Okay, so this would be super fun for a night out with friends! This is a two hour tour through downtown Fort Worth. They provide the driver and you pedal. It is BYOB. 

This little gem is a fun place to listen to live music with a primary focus toward jazz. 

Serving up craft beers and wine with daily special entrees. 

Rooftop bar and patio with a view, sandwiches, salads, 50+ beers on tap

Looking for a good breakfast?

They offer a wide variety of breakfast entrees with generous portions! They also have a variety of juices. 

This little cafe has wonderful breakfast--the biscuits are where it's at here. 

Looking for a fun, family day with the kids? 

There are so many fun things to do with the kiddos.......

Everyday at 11:30 and 4:00 you can see the details of a cattle drive. Kids love it! There are also fun things to do in the area: petting zoo, pony rides, shops, restaurants. 

Super fun little train ride. We have been doing this for years and the kids always have a good time!

This is one of our very favorite places to go. There are three floors of fun and the Omni Theatre--a motion movie. 

We love this zoo! We go quite often and always get the yearly membership card. A must do if you're visiting the area. 

That concludes my list of my favorite things to do in Fort Worth. If any of my locals have anymore ideas to add, please comment! I would love to hear your favorite things to do.
