Fort Worth Zoo

The nationally acclaimed Fort Worth Zoo is a pioneer in using natural habitats to showcase animals. Exotic animals are kept out of cages and left to freely roam in a natural environment. On most occasions, visitors are separated from the residents by only a river or a waterfall! Special exhibits include the world of primates, African Savannah, Asian falls and Texas wild. An onsite restaurant serves hamburgers, fries, pizza and BBQ, while a canopy of magnificent oak trees provides shelter from the hot Texas sun.

Lake Worth

Located on the northwest edge of Ft. Worth and not far from downtown, Lake Worth is a convenient destination. Since there is no full service marina on the reservoir, it is a popular location for sailboat enthusiasts. There is also a large amount of private property along the lake's edge, so make sure you use one of the four public boat and picnic areas when you are there. Fishing for small bass and crappie is popular, and be sure to look for Moss Point and Goat Island, which provide excellent scenery. Admission is free.
