1. Take a walk along the Trinity River
Or jog, roller blade, bike, kayak, and more. If outdoor activities are your thing, the Trinity River is definitely your place. There are trails along the river that you can do any number of land activities. There are also places you can rent out kayaks for the day if you’re interested in a water activity.
Many non-profits need all the help they can get in the summer, but taking a day or two to help others might help you as well. One of the best feelings is the sense of satisfaction you get from helping others. If you need ideas, some places that could always use volunteers are Union Gospel Mission, Tarrant County Food Bank, and the Humane Society of North Texas.
3. Go to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden
This the perfect place to get out of the house and be surrounded by nature. There are over 2,500 species of plants on over 100 acres. If you are looking for a peaceful day, this is the place.
4. Take a trip out to Fossil Rim (or the Zoo)
I, personally, am an animal lover. My favorite way to spend a day is to look at and learn about animals. Fossil Rim is quite a drive but interacting with the animals definitely makes it worth it. If you don’t have all day, the Zoo is still very fun and interesting!
5. Go horseback riding
Even if you don’t have horses, places like Rancho La Rosa let you take a guided horseback trail ride. It’s a great way to enjoy a sunny day with other people and probably a new experience for some of them.
6. Go to the Fort Worth Water Gardens
This is a really cool place and if you haven’t seen it before, you should. There are a couple different pools, including an active pool where you can walk to the bottom and be surrounded by running water. It’s calm and peaceful to watch the flowing water run down the steps.
7. Try some delicious sweet treats around town
On a nice hot day, there is nothing more refreshing than something cold and sweet. Two places that are a bit newer in Fort Worth are Steel City Pops and Melt Ice Creams. Both are delicious options and will instantly cool you down.
8. Visit the Stockyards
The Stockyards is always a great reminder of how Fort Worth started out. Even better, there’s so much to do in this section of town. The Stockyards has some of the best barbeque I’ve ever had. There’s also Billy Bob’s and rodeos, which provide lots of entertainment. They even have cattle drives twice a day! You can visit the Stockyards many times and still not see all it has to offer.
9. Hang out in Sundance Square
Sundance Square is a great place to sit and people watch in downtown Fort Worth. It’s perfect for that day you just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the day. Shops and restaurants surround it, so there’s plenty to do all day for the whole family.
10. Visit the Fort Worth Food Park
There are actually two main food truck parks in Fort Worth: the Fort Worth Food Park and Clearfork Food Park. Both of these offer great options for food. Food truck parks are great because you can order a variety of food there. It’s a cool place to go on a nice day and experience some local food.
Our Roman Strap Sandal Flats or the Brown Oxi is perfect for comfort and fashion while strolling around town! Most of our bags can fit everything you need for a day out in the sun so get out and enjoy this weather!
