In our previous post, we talked about Dallas Texas, and the Lone Star State in general, and in this issue, we will focus on a quick getaway to Fort Worth Texas that is within driving distance of Dallas. Whenever anyone from the staff at Skycap News is in the Dallas area (time permitting of course), we make the worthwhile effort to travel to nearby Fort Worth as well as Arlington and some of their sights there as well. With it being only a short drive down the road from Dallas, there’s no reason why you can’t take in all three areas of Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington while there.
So what is there to do in the Fort Worth area? We will gladly answer that question in this blog post.
As mentioned in our previous post, Texas is a state rich in tradition and history and focused on the finer things that Southerners have come to love and know.
