118th Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo

W

Welcome to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo’s 118th showdown year. Get ready for a 23-day event where the excitement is unbridled, the performances are unbelievable, and the legacy is unmatched! It’s the kind of full-tilt, no-holds-barred family entertainment that only the Stock Show can deliver. Enjoy heart pounding rodeo, worldclass livestock, kid-friendly exhibits, live music, cowboy cuisine, the “Moo-seum Experience,” carnival/midway, interactive educational exhibits, four acres of shopping and more. Youngsters and the young-at-heart will love the Bank of Texas Petting Zoo where they can get “up close and personal” with a

variety of farm animals. Other fun and interactive educational stops to take advantage of include Planet Agriculture, produced by the Texas Farm Bureau, and the fascinating Thank a Farmer Ag Magic Show. Texas Farm Bureau Insurance presents both of these crowd-pleasers. The Milking Parlor and the FFA Children’s Barnyard are also favorites among veteran Stock Show fans. Guests can again take advantage of the “Moo-seum Experience” presented by Central Market. In addition to all the Stock Show entertainment, your Stock Show grounds admission also grants access to three museums: The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, Cattle Raisers Museum and National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. 4

This “cultural exchange” works both ways. Members of these museums can get into the Stock Show grounds free for the entire 23-day run. Museum schedules can be found on the website.

West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

A

by Michael H. Price

As long as we’re “out where the West begins,” as an iconic figure in Fort Worth’s history described this Cowtown, then we might as well look even further westward within the city itself. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter may have intended to give Dallas the razz when he coined that phrase — but the West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavyduty commercial, artistic and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st century, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West Seventh Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brick-paved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and specialinterest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an everexpanding array of art galleries, stage-and-screen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History, commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street and just 6

northward are additional cultural touchstones: An expanded and redesigned Amon Carter Museum of American Art, houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture, from essential historic works by Charles M. Russell and Frederick Remington to a new acquisition of last-century Native American photography by Edward S. Curtis. Close by is the Kimbell Art Museum, itself preparing for an expansion and still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America.” The neighboring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a work-of-art 2002 building designed by world-renowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independent-studio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texas-bred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oil-and-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and a new digital Noble Planetarium . The Omni Theater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound system and enhanced lighting. The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FMS&H. The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from those who have lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening

menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. The Great Outdoors offers breakfast subs, lunch and dinner subs, soups, salads and all natural ice cream. Off University on White Settlement Road, a Texas barbecue tradition reigns at Angelo’s, offering a half-century of first-class BBQ and ultra-chilled beer. The Fort Worth Community Art Center, at the district’s western edge, showcases work by the city’s homegrown community of artists, in addition to live-theater venues. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still the most imposing

site within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Shoppers can find a broad selection of merchandise in the Cultural District’s specialty shops. European antiques and upholstery can be found at Domain XCIV and the dh collection boasts progressive furniture designs in an appetite-whetting environment. Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens. The European-designed Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

Glen Rose CVB Glen Rose, The Dinosaur Capital of Texas

Glen Rose provides the perfect destination for families, or people just wanting a taste of small town Texas. Glen Rose is best known as the “Dinosaur Capital of Texas,” but is much more than that. Glen Rose has been a popular tourist destination since the early 1900s. In addition to the beautiful scenery, rolling hills and rivers, the Glen Rose area has hundreds of natural springs. The water flowing from the springs is heavily laden with minerals and it was believed at one time to have healing powers. Glen Rose is still a popular tourist destination with its rolling hills and rivers, but several family attractions have been added over the years including Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, just to name a few. Also, be sure and visit the Historic Courthouse Square. Home to quaint shops, restaurants and lodging, it provides a nostalgic feel, that few towns can still claim. As for those hills and rivers that first put Glen Rose on the map, they are still there. In addition to the natural beauty, visitors will find opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, kayaking, canoeing or just kicking back and enjoying a sunset. On Friday, January 31 at 6 p.m., the 13th Annual Winter Tractor Pull and Show will be at the Expo Center. Glen Rose also offers a number of overnight opportunities ranging from upscale lodges to a variety of bed and breakfasts, cabins, cottages, campgrounds, hotels, and RV parks. For more information about Glen Rose attractions and lodging, contact the Glen Rose Visitor Information Center at 1-888-346-6282 or visit www.glenrosetexas.net.

After lunch, explore the more than 80 locally owned shops, jewelry stores, winery-tasting rooms and more along Grapevine’s Historic Main Street. Make sure to check out Holy Grounds Coffee Shop and Christian Book Store. Sample delicious coffees and shop the amazing array of products, many of which are from local artists and vendors. Holy Grounds is kid and pet-friendly. What would a crisp January evening be without a piping hot bowl of delicious Texas chili? Don’t miss your chance to sample the legendary Original Texas Red at Tolbert’s located in Historic Downtown Grapevine. A North Texas legend for more than 28 years, this bowl of chili perfection comes in three serving sizes for a range of appetites. And for chili aficionados, try the Frito Pie! A great way to start your Tolbert’s experience is with an order of Donkey Tails- a hot dog stuffed with cheese, rolled in a tortilla and deep-fried and served with chili and mustard sauces for dipping. Most evenings Tolbert’s also features live music. For a complete listing of restaurants, events and activities in Grapevine call 1-800-457-6338 or visit www.GrapevineTexasUSA.com.
