Spring Breaking, Texas Style (& a Giveaway!)


Spring Break was a few weeks ago and, while we don't take a big trip, we do like to unplug for a few days and have some good old-fashioned family time. When we want to go somewhere close that's sure to please everyone, we head west for the short drive to Ft. Worth.


If Dallas is a slick cosmopolitan city, then Ft. Worth is her laidback and fun country cousin. It didn't get the nickname "Cowtown" for nothing! Our first stop is always the Stockyards, just north of downtown.


This is where cowboys on horseback saunter about, sharing brick roads with oversized pick-up trucks.


I spotted this cowgirl on her all-too-happy-to-pose pony, Bluebell.


Twice a day, the cowboys host a cattle drive, right down the middle of the road! It's not often I'm eye-to-eye with a longhorn!


Ft. Worth was established in 1849, so there are plenty of spots for photo-ops!



Next stop was the Museum of Science & History, where we had so much fun with all the interactive exhibits I forgot to take pictures! I did manage this one of the kids experiencing hurricane-force winds up to 80 mph. My favorite part was watching the other moms try to preserve their hair-dos while taking a turn in the booth. Give it up, sister!


And what's the best part of visiting a new city? Trying new food and restaurants, of course! There is no shortage of great places to eat, but we always stop at our favorites, and Ft. Worth institutions, Joe T. Garcias and Angelos BBQ. There is no better, colder and cheaper beer than at Angelos ... and wow does it go down fast! A new favorite burger spot is the Love Shack, wedged in the opening between two buildings. I went to high school with the owner, celebrity chef Tim Love, so it's exciting to see his success.


Ft. Worth has managed to retain much of its open land, and you'll find parks, trails and scenes like this all over the city.


Directly in the heart of downtown, and spread over four acres, are the Water Gardens, made up of three pools, the most popular of which being the one you can walk to the bottom of, about 40 feet down. From here, all you hear is the sound of rushing water.


The meditation pool is quite the opposite, and a very quiet and peaceful spot.


The main reason Ft. Worth has my heart is because it's home to my alma-mater, Texas Christian University! Big 12, baby! We strolled the beautiful campus and stopped to rub The Frog's nose for good luck.


Did you know that there are only two places in the country that print money, and Ft. Worth is one of them? (Washington DC is the other.) You can tour the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and watch them print money ... for free! The security is tight (I can see why, last year they printed $139 billion here!), so I only got this one picture.

Yep, that's barbed wire on the fence!
But no matter where we go, my favorite part of these trips is the opportunity to leave all the distractions behind and have time together. I'm even gifted with a few sweet moments between brother and sister.


It was a great long weekend, and we'll definitely be back to this unique city! So tell me, has Ft. Worth ever crossed your mind?

  148. I also went to college in TX (Sic 'Em, Bears!) and would love to get back for a visit. I did a lot of Austin exploring during college, but I never quite got my fill of Fredericksberg so that's where I would like to visit.

  152. I've always wanted to visit Texas Hill country but I think I'd find something to love in just about any part of Texas.

  153. The Alamo for sure. My husband is a history-buff and has said for years we have to visit. I'd love to see all the artifacts people have found.

  155. In looking at google earth maps, the name Chocolate Bay really sticks out. Its surrounded by nature and not much else. Would love to take a boat tour of that area!

  165. Aw, that Bluebell pony is a sweetie! I think one of the places I'd like to visit in Texas would be Ft. Worth. I'd like to visit some of their parks, especially places where you can see vast amounts of land. :) Plus, now that you mentioned it, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing would be pretty cool to visit.

  169. You should visit Tim Love's new restaurant, The Woodshed! I love it - it's slightly more upscale than Love Shack, but not as fancy as Lonesome Dove (I've eaten at all 3).

    It sounds like you had a fun weekend!

  170. Ft. Worth and Austin have always seemed like cool places to visit, plus I know some bloggers there so I really SHOULD plan a trip soon! :-)

  171. Just saw this post today. I am a native Texan and yet I've spent very little time in the DFW area. In fact, this past July was my first true visit to Ft. Worth. We plan to go back to the area more often because there is too much to do and see. Great post! :)

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
