Things In Fort Worth Our Office Is Thankful For
More than once, we’ve been asked why we chose to set up our practice in Fort Worth. Those that are new to the area might wonder, “Why here instead of Dallas? Or, instead of a smaller, quieter area a little further north?”
The truth of the matter is that there is no place we’d rather be. While some may view Fort Worth as the cowboy cousin to posh Dallas, the western charm rooted in the Stockyards is one of the best features of our city. It breeds a hardworking community that looks out for one another.
In Dr. Ku’s 20 years of practice, he’s met some of the most inspiring, down-to-earth and diverse folks in this area. And in addition to the people, Fort Worth is chocked full of family friendly activities, opportunities, and adventure.
Follow along as we highlight some of the reasons that we’re thankful for Fort Worth!
- Cultural activities
The Fort Worth cultural district boasts an array of world-class museums and galleries featuring renowned works of art. From the Kimbell to the Modern Art Museum, art enthusiasts and museum buffs can wander around works of art from Picasso to Matisse. For a stunning architectural treat, as well as to hear some of the best musicians in Texas, head to downtown Fort Worth to attend a performance at the Bass Performance Hall. From Broadway to holiday, country, or opera, the Bass Performance Hall hosts performances that will delight any music lover.
- Family-friendly adventures
For weekend warriors looking to get the most out of their days off, there are countless activities in Fort Worth to enjoy with friends and family. First, head to the Fort Worth zoo to see the more than 7,000 different animals they have on display. Featuring hands-on activities and a petting zoo, you might need more than a weekend to see everything! And while the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History might not sound as fun as Saturday cartoon, the truth is that this interactive museum is a fun learning experience for everyone. From the planetarium to unearthing fossils, everyone will rediscover their love for learning. Or, throw on your cowboy boots and head downtown to the stockyards to watch the twice-daily cattle drive, or plan a trip to the weekly rodeo. Bring your appetite as well to eat at the legendary steak houses that are found in the same area.
- Best holiday activities
It would be a loss if we didn’t include those favorite holiday activities as well. Although the weather is rarely “frightful” in Texas, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the opportunity to enjoy the winter’s magic, like with ice skating in an outdoor park. Beginning on November 17, skaters can take to the ice at the Coyote Drive-In. While you might not need jackets, don’t forget your gloves—the air might be warm, but the ice is cold! Another local holiday favorite is the annual parade of lights through downtown Fort Worth. As the parade celebrates its 35th anniversary, you won’t want to miss out on never-before seen floats, balloons, and performing groups. Finally, ring in the season with the lighting of the Sundance Square Christmas tree on November 18. Fort Worth always hosts the best holiday activities—make sure to not miss out on any of them!
From the symphony to steer, Fort Worth is a small town within a city. While the population continues to grow, the local charm hasn’t disappeared. We at Dr. Ku’s office are thankful for the diversity, the culture, the activities, and each of our patients in this city we call home. This holiday season, we are definitely thankful for Fort Worth.
