As a community of vibrant, culturally diverse individuals of all ages, Fort Worth, a city of half a million people nestled on the banks of the Trinity River in North Texas, offers rich venues for men and women to meet and connect. The city capitalizes on its nickname, "Cow Town," by playing up its Western heritage to the fullest but in a sophisticated, urban setting.
Known for its ties to the oil, cattle, and railroad industries, Fort Worth also boasts the finest museums, restaurants, and hotels. Named one of America's most livable cities, the re-vamped downtown district and Sundance Square present visitors with an upscale look at night life in Fort Worth. Sex in the City has nothing on these urban cowboys when they step out in their finest for a concert at the Bass Performance Hall or enjoy dinner in a cozy corner bistro.
The museum district adjacent to downtown is anchored by the city's Modern Art Museum on the east and the Amon Carter Museum on the west. The Modern, home to some three thousand pieces, celebrates the broad span of media and materials with which artists have experimented in the decades since World War II. The soaring steel and glass structure sits in a 1.5 acre reflecting pond and is itself, a work of art. The museum restaurant, adjacent to the pond, makes a lovely setting for intimate dinners and casual conversation.
The Amon Carter Museum opened in 1961. In the beginning it housed the core collection of some four hundred paintings and drawings collected by philanthropist and publisher Amon G. Carter. In the years since, it has grown to be one of America's premier institutions for the collection and preservation of Western art. The broad courtyard in front of the museum seems to invite strolls in the moonlight and offers one of the best views of downtown in the city.
The same area of town houses the Will Rogers Coliseum and Equestrian Center as well as the barns and other facilities used annually in the month-long Southwestern Exposition Livestock Show and Rodeo in Fort Worth. Sex and age don't figure into the competitions. Young men and women from across the state exhibit their show animals and participate in events as diverse as barrel racing and English riding while their elders ride cutting horses, work sheep dogs, or hit the dirt in rough and tumble events like bulldogging.
Whatever your interests, you'll find a friendly, Texas welcome in Fort Worth, a city where many of the "cowboys" are women. Fort Worth epitomizes and celebrates the best of the cowgirl image. You can even visit the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth. Sex, or rather the notion that hers is the more fair of the two, means nothing to a gal when she's riding or roping for prize money on horseback but wash off all that arena dirt and you still find women. Fort Worth offers a Western nightlife in the historic Stockyards District and in that part of Fort Worth, sex means everything.
Dance the night away at the world famous Billy Bob's, the World's Largest Honky Tonk, and home to performances by such country music greats as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Asleep at the Wheel. Cowboys and cowgirls rub belt buckles on the dance floor of this favorite night spot in Fort Worth. Sex can't help but cross a cowpoke's mind when he's holding a pretty woman on a dance floor, but watch out! Texas women shoot as well as they ride. There's never a dull moment during a night on the town, Cow Town that is.
From concerts and museums to rodeos and honky tonks, Fort Worth offers a wide ranging social and cultural life for men and women to meet and connect on the plains of North Texas.
