Kimbell Art Museum

Fort Worth's premier art museum, featuring paintings from international painters.

Reviewed By kpenning - kc

I may be spoiled by the expansive collection of my hometown art museum, gallery upon gallery. There are basically 6 galleries at the Kimball, 4 of which were closed (in preparation for upcoming exhibit etc.) I did enjoy seeing the collection in the North gallery- a few Picassos, Monets, Matisse and several versions of Madona and child. I did not visit the African art which is housed in the building next door. As this museum is clustered with the Modern Art and Amon Carter, it could be worth your while to visit others if in the area. The coffee shop/Pavillion Cafe offers some good fare.

Whitestone Golf Club

Whitestone was created with one thought in mind... offer Texans and visitors the best possible golf experience at an unbelievably affordable price. We are proud to say that we have done just what we set out to do!Our Fort Worth golf club first opened in May, 2000 and we immediately knew that we had something really special! Whitestone was instantly selected as one of Texas' Top 10 New Public Courses. Whitestone Golf Club is located on 150 acres of beautiful rolling land. That enabled us to build a course that is really unique for the Northern Texas area. For our Fort Worth golf club, we selected the newest and best type of grass for our greens, tees, and fairways. Tif Eagle is considered to be the finest grass for putting surfaces that you can get for a climate like ours here in the Ft. Worth area. Our Bermuda 419 tees and wide, accommodating fairways give our golfers great lies to hit those important approach shots to our large, receptive greens. Our 18 hole championship Fort Worth golf course was co-designed by nationally-known golf architects Jeff Brauer and Jay Morrish.

Its not a municipal course, but it is still a public course that is varied, challenging, well-maintained, and incredibly affordable! There's not much more to say about a good course like this, and it has a good little clubhouse to relax in after your game as well!

Benbrook Stables

Reviewed By Infrequent_tripper - East Troy, Wisconsin

We had tried to book a trail ride elsewhere, and all places advertised around Dallas/FT Worth except Beaumont ranch (another place far south of our hotel) were closed due to prior rain (everything is unusually wet there this month due to severe weather). We weren't even all that sure we wanted to do a trail ride (we owned our own horses previously- so been there done that), but were hoping to do something entertaining before we returned from a medical trip. Then the night before our trail ride Beaumont ranch called to cancel us also - just too much mud. I somehow found this hidden gem "Benbrook Stables" on a more detailed internet search. Benbrook took our reservation last minute. It started pouring just before our trail ride, but our trail guide patiently watched for it to let up a bit got us out when it did- letting us know we'd turn around if it got worse. Turns out the weather was perfect for the rest of our ride. The water levels were unusually high so the ground was wet, and we did have to pick up our feet going through a stream (which was really fun!). But the horse were the most sure-footed horses I've ever been on by far, and handled any muddy areas like champs. The trails were peaceful, nice and open, and surprisingly bug free (I'm told that's not always the norm). It's nice that they are located on higher ground. I've been on trail rides previously were I felt that I was taxing the horse (think dead broke old looks like it wants to take a nap right now type) - I did not feel like that on these horses. Despite being the last trip out of the day, the horses looked calm, in good shape, strong, and ready to go out. They seemed to enjoy their work. The horses were healthy, and the trail guide picked out good matches for our skills and sizes. The restrooms were nice and large - good for changing into long pants and out of wet clothes. The helmets were the right sizes. The price was in line with other stables, and a good value. If we ever return to the area, we will definitely visit them again. The only downside - my saddle was wet. I was warned first! But next time I'll bring a dry towel to sit on, just in case :)

Fort Worth Zoo

City zoo that presents animal habitats as they exist in the world.

Reviewed By Tally4 - Colorado

We went on a Thursday in March, that happened to be during spring break. Apparently most of the Ft. Worth area schools have spring break at the same time. The zoo was PACKED. There was a traffic jam to get into parking, and we had to park about a half mile away in a field, then walk to the entrance. Inside was crowded, but not enough to ruin the experience, we just had to wait in line for everything.

It's a really nice zoo, just don't go during Ft. Worth's spring break!

Lovely museum. Really enjoyed the photography exhibit by Rania Matar.

This exhibition is described as "bringing together four bodies of work by the Lebanese-American photographer Rania Matar that trace the development of female identity through portraiture. Depicting transitional moments of life, from young girlhood to middle age, Matar’s works address personal and collective identity through photographs mining female adolescence and womanhood. Photographing girls and women in both the United States and the Middle East, the artist shows how the forces that shape female identity transcend cultural and geographic boundaries."

Each girl photographed is as individual as the room she calls "home". The colors in each photo, whether of the individual, or the "stuff" in the room, are dynamic. Interesting to see how they each live, whether they have a little or a lot.

Fort Worth Japanese Garden

Reviewed By Jlb21967 - Anna, Texas

This was a beautiful place to go.Truly enjoyed walking it with another couple. Be sure to eat before you go or put snacks in your pocket because they don't really sell any. If you take small children be aware there are several water features. There were plenty of things to look at and it's bigger than it looks.

Texas Christian University

Reviewed By Badgelady - Cut and Shoot, Texas

Home of the TCU Women and Men’s tennis programs, this facility has collegiate and high school competitions. There are indoor courts and numerous outdoor lighted courts. The purple courts on the grandstand side are for TCU matches. There is a pro shop with dressing rooms, ice and coffee maker. Unlike other facilities the ice and coffee are free. Yesterday during the Tech-TCU match, played in cold, windy temps, the pro shop attendant made several pots of coffee for spectators. Always a pleasure to attend matches here. Love the huge tree that surround the courts.

As part of our anniversary stay in Ft. Worth, the Botanic Gardens were on the short list.
The tour is free and quite amazing even in the late fall in north Texas. We really need to return in the spring. There is a charge for the Japanese gardens but it is so worth it for the sheer beauty to behold.

Sid Richardson Museum

One of the finest and most focused collections of Western Art in America, this Fort Worth museum features paintings of the 19th Century American West by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and other artists, which were collected by oilman and philanthropist Sid Richardson.

Reviewed By Lynn M - Houston, Texas

This museum is small and intimate, but packed with beautiful Western art. One of the docents there talked to me and she was informative and delightful. Thank you, Sid Richardson, for a beautiful legacy for others, like us, to enjoy. (And the fact that it is free - always - makes it extra special.)
