5 things to do this summer in Fort Worth
Kayak – Head to the Trinity River in downtown for a afternoon fun in the sun. Located at Panter Island Pavilion, you can rent kayaks, canoes and paddleboards. Remember to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the rest of the afternoon playing on the sandy beach.
Nature Center – Located on 3,000 acres and has over 20 miles of hiking trails. This is the perfect spot to explore nature, picnic and get up close & personal with buffalo. There are plenty of shade trees and picnic tables scattered throughout the park.
Zoo – You can never go wrong with the Fort Worth Zoo. Be sure to check out the new African Savanna where you can get a close up view of the black rhinos, exotic birds, underwater hippo viewing and even feed the giraffes! For an additional $5 you can cool off at the Safari Splash.
Herd – Head to the stockyards every day at 11:30 and 4 p.m. to watch the cowboys go on a cattle drive.
Drive-In – Throw a few pillows and lawn chairs in the car and head to Coyote Drive-In. Get there early and let kiddos run of their energy at the playground before the movie starts! Price of admissions includes a double feature.
