Fort Worth Zoo
opened in 1909 and is the oldest zoo in Texas. Starting with only a lion, bear cubs, a peacock and a coyote, the zoo has grown to house over 7,000 animals. After the Fort Worth Zoological Association took over ownership from the city in 1991, it hosted a grand re-opening featuring two new exhibits, the World of Primates and Asian Falls. Since then, 16 exhibits, such as Flamingo Bay and Raptor Canyon, have been opened and improvements have been made all over the park resulting in rave reviews and frequently ranking among the country's top zoos.

Fort Worth Botanic Garden - Established in 1934, this 110-acre space offers over 2500 native and exotic plant species in over 20 separate gardens like the Conservatory, Rose Garden and Japanese Garden. It is considered the oldest botanic garden in Texas.

Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge was started by the Audubon Society in 1964 to preserve local flora and fauna with just over 300 acres of land. Today there are over 3600 acres to explore, including a 20-mile walking trail where visitors can see the buffalo, white-tailed deer and wildflowers.

North Texas Horse Country Tour is one of the largest areas of horses in the US with over 40,000 different breeds such as Quarter Horses, Arabians, Paints, Appaloosas, and Thoroughbreds. There are over 350 ranches and farms practicing training and breeding and showing off their skills for tour groups with reining, cutting, western, and roping displays.

Cowtown Segway Tours
was started in 2009 after a man had so much fun zipping around Fort Worth on his Segway he wanted to share it with the public and started his own business. The 1-2 hour tours start out with a training lesson and go on to breeze by some of Fort Worth's main attractions like the Museum of Science and History, the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and the Botanical Gardens.

Cowtown Cattlepen Maze is 5,400 square feet of wooden pathways modeled after the Wild West style cattlepens. Visitors can try to find their way out with friends or race against the clock and locate checkpoints for prizes while the non-competitors cheer them on from the observation deck overlooking the entire maze.

Fort Worth Herd Cattle Drive reenacts the bygone cattle herding days that earned Fort Worth the nickname "Cowtown". First started in June 1999, authentically dressed cattle drovers brought 15 Texas Longhorns through the street in front of 15,000 onlookers. It has since become a daily tradition in the stockyards and is the only one of its kind that happens twice a day.
