Pros: i liked how much space I had. Cons: Everything was great! Tips: Make sure if you have a flight or other train to catch to keep them at least 3 hours apart because I ended up arriving an hour late, so that may set you back.

Much more than an afterthought to nearby Dallas, Fort Worth is an exciting destination in its own right. Fort Worth is one of the largest cities in Texas and in the United States overall, because, as we all know, everything is bigger in Texas. With the motto "City of Cowboys and Culture," Fort Worth has activities, sights, and experiences to deliver on both of those fronts.

If you dressed as a cowboy for Halloween as a child (or last year), your first stop should be the Fort Worth Stockyards. Once a livestock market, the Stockyards are now a National Historic District characterized by restaurants, bars, Old-West themed shopping, and live music. Here you can see real Texas Longhorns on a cattle drive twice a day, or attend the Stockyards Championship Rodeo, held every weekend at the Cowtown Coliseum. Can you see why we named Fort Worth one of the best vacation destinations in Texas?

If you're more intrigued by Fort Worth's cultural offerings, you'll be wowed by the breadth of museums to visit. Admire the art at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth or the Kimbell Art Museum (whose architecture is a work of art in itself). Outdoor oases like the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and Fort Worth Water Gardens will bring a breath of fresh air - not to mention a chance to dip your feet in the water to cool off.

Luckily, there's no need to ride a horse into Cowtown. Bus service from several local and national carriers, as well as Amtrak train service, make it easy to get to Fort Worth from cities throughout the U.S. Plus, with proximity to one of the world's busiest airports, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, you can visit Fort Worth from nearly anywhere on the globe.

Oklahoma City

Often overlooked by travelers, Oklahoma City features a treasure trove of fun and quirky little secrets that will keep you enchanted. Among the city’s most famous attractions is the Museum of Osteology, which is one of the only two osteology museums in North America. Featuring more than 300 complete skeletons, as well as 400 different skulls, the museum is a unique experience that will leave you pleasantly satisfied. For those interested in the city’s history and its Western heritage, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum offers deep insights into the period.

After a day of exploring the city’s many museums, unwind at Bricktown, which offers some of the best entertainment establishments and eateries in town. Oklahoma City boasts a large population of Vietnamese Americans, and one of the best spots to try out amazing pho noodles is at Pho Ca Dao, a local favorite. In case you want to enjoy the most authentically Oklahoman dishes, try Cattlemen’s Steakhouse, the oldest continuously operating restaurant in the city.

Travelers can catch a bus from several different places in the city depending on the carrier you are traveling with. For train travelers, the Oklahoma City Amtrak station is located right in the heart of downtown making it easily accessible. The city is served by two airports: the Will Rogers World Airport, which is located 6 miles southwest of Downtown, and the Wiley Post Airport, seven miles northwest of the central business district.
