Full description

Take a private tour around Fort Worth, once an infamous cattle-trading town rampant with cowboys. Let your guide drive you to sites like the Stockyards National Historic District, “Hell’s Half Acre”, and either the Kimbell or the Amon G. Carter art museums for a full view of its past and present.

Learn about the city’s historic reputation as “cow town” and as one of the wickedest towns in the Southwest. Walk around the mansions and graves of cattle barons and hear stories of how they would have lived long ago.

Visit Stockyards National Historic District to see where locals and tourists gather throughout the year for rodeos. Drive a portion of the Bankhead Highway that spans 14 states. Go through the former red light district called Hell’s Half Acre and hear about the lawlessness that plagued the area.

Head to the water gardens in downtown Fort Worth to see the architectural piece of public art with flowing pools of water. As a final excursion, choose between seeing a collection of European and Asian art at the Kimbell or a variety of American art at the Amon Carter.
