One of the largest cities in Texas, Fort Worth sits adjacent to Dallas and between them there are hundreds of things to do on a Fort Worth family vacation. Among the many things to see and do, a visit to Stockyard Station, the zoo and a museum can make for a great family-friendly vacation.
One of the most popular places to go in Fort Worth is the Fort Worth Zoo. The zoo has grown from its original first dozen animals in 1909 to now housing roughly 5,000 animals. If you have younger children, you will want to stop by the play barn and give your children the chance to run off energy, or visit the petting zoo for some interactive fun. Take your lunch with you, enjoy their many picnic benches and watch the animals as you eat. Just across the street is the Log Cabin Village, which is a Fort Worth activity that offers hands-on learning. Your children will enjoy making candles and learning how to weave.
Near both the Fort Worth Zoo and the Log Cabin Village lies one of the best places to go in Fort Worth for a good night's rest. The Omni Hotel in Fort Worth has a summer kids' club, complete with movies and games. It is also pet-friendly, so bring your furry family member along for the trip. They also offer five on-site restaurants complete with kid's menus for your children to choose their favorite meal.
A great Fort Worth vacation idea is to visit Stockyard Station. Stockyard Station has over 25 shops and is home to several Fort Worth tours. Some of the family attractions in Fort Worth found at Stockyard Station include historic walking tours, Cowtown Cattlepen Maze, Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Livestock Exchange and the chance to go on a trail ride. While you are at the Stockyards, book a night at the Hyatt Place Hotel. It is a kid-friendly hotel in Fort Worth offering both on-site restaurants and a complimentary breakfast. Children stay free and pets are welcome. Fully capable of handling larger families, the Hyatt Place Hotel offers connecting rooms, as well as extra beds when requested. This entire area has the potential to make a single Fort Worth family vacation, but there are several other things to do within a few miles.
If you are looking for family trip plans in Fort Worth with children who enjoy hands-on activities, then you must stop at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. This location offers a children's museum and Innovation Studios for elementary age children. This Fort Worth activity caters to your children's curiosity and allows you to make a stop in the museum's 3,000 square-foot store for educational souvenirs.
