Fort Worth Photos of the Day

Recommended Posts


The Stockyards north of downtown today.   2 new hotels are being built in the district including an extension of  Stockyards with Mule Alley which among other tenants includes a Shake Shack (that is funny to me a NYC based burger chain in the heart of Stockyards district)  plus new 200 room Hotel Drover.  https://mulealleyfortworth.com/      https://hoteldrover.com/

This area was packed with tourists today and with this expansion getting even bigger.

If I was doing the power rankings of the downtowns of Texas the best would be not in any particular order Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio.    Both the larger cities of Houston and Dallas are way behind in street level and residential mixed uses in their downtowns.   Uptown Dallas outside of downtown is pretty active at the street level and high rises but not so much downtown Dallas.

I agree.  The Dallas and Houston downtowns are products of the 80s.  Awesome skyscrapers but built on plazas away from the street or designed with minimal street connectivity.

The Williams Tower in Houston is one of my top five favorite skyscrapers ever, but it was and somewhat still is a lone sentinel.

Multiple photos of downtown Fort Worth where the Aggies where they were having a Texas Aggies parade for their game later that day.  The stockyards is great and saw the cattle drive for the first time.    Don't tell Dallas but I like downtown Fort Worth better.    New high end boutique Marriott hotel at the Stockyards now the Drover.  It is really nice.
