The city rightly calls itself "Cowtown" in honor of its cattle-raising history, but it also boasts a wide variety of musical, artistic, and cultural attractions. There are many Western-themed saloons and famous night locales, such as the Electric Cowboy and Billy Bob's Texas, said to be the world's largest honky-tonk. Fort Worth began as the humble Camp Worth in 1849 and has a rich history to show for it. Parts of downtown, the Stockyards, and nearby neighborhoods evoke a frontier charm. But it isn't all boots, chaps, and cowboy hats; in downtown there is plenty of culture and relaxation to be found at Bass Performance Hall and the Water Gardens. The city's biking community is also up and coming with various outings for exercise and two-wheeled bar crawls. If you prefer your social exercise on foot, Fort Worth has more than two dozen half-marathons in the fall alone. It's plain to see that modern culture, healthy living, and cowboy adventures stand side-by-side in this unique and vibrant setting.
