Word appears to be getting around about the flourishing amenities and overall good vibery to be found in Cowtown.
Citing Fort Worth’s top-notch museums, “a music scene on the verge of competing with Austin thanks to local crooner Leon Bridges and Niles City Sound, new barbecue pilgrimages, breweries, and a rodeo like nowhere else,” the CNT editors conclude, “the city has given us plenty of reasons to reconsider its place in our top Texas cities."
Reconsider? We’ll give a pass this time. (You should get out more.)
The editors note the vibrant Magnolia Avenue scene and new south side haunts and make the obligatory (if you’re not from here) longhorn and rodeo references. There’s just no escaping that, but at least they’re savvy enough to scratch below the surface.
Both Condé Nast Traveler and Money mention that Fort Worth and the other cities listed offer attractions and accommodations comparable to well-known popular destinations at cheaper rates.
Fort Worth is joined on Condé Nast’s list by Baltimore, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, St. Louis and Detroit.
