Cheap areas to stay in Fort Worth

Ever since the days of the ranchers, Fort Worth has been a popular Texan stopover. These days, there are plenty of low-cost places to stay in the city, which is now also part of one of the largest metroplexes in the United States. Take the motels and highway inns that fringe Interstate 30 – great for hitting out-of-town shopping malls or stashing the car before downtown sightseeing jaunts. Others pepper the Clear Fork Trinity River, near the bustling University District. And then there are the cheap Fort Worth hotels along I-820, near airports and charming suburbs.

Where to find cheap food in Fort Worth

Welcome to Texas, where BBQ is the name of the gastronomic game. Fort Worth hotels are surrounded by more brisket-smoking, meat-grilling kitchens than you can shake a piece of hickory at, though the local ones around Grapevine might just have the best character of all. Budding cowboys can make for the Stockyards area, which is filled with family-friendly rancher taverns, old saloons, and cattle drivers' dives. For real budget eats, you could also consider Cowtown Farmers' Market on a Saturday, which showcases the very best in Lone Star produce from nearby fields.

Cheap things to do in Fort Worth

With its immersive Stockyards district waiting just a little to the north of downtown, you won't have to spend a cent to get a feel for the Wild West character of this historic cowboy haunt. Head there and you'll soon be surrounded by horse corals and door-slapping saloons. The place channels a real 1800s vibe, and even hosts regular cattle drives and shoot-out reenactments. Culture vultures might prefer the extensive and acclaimed exhibit rooms of the Kimbell Art Museum, which pack in works by Turner, Miro, and Caravaggio to name a few. Entry there is half-price on some days of the week, while hefty reductions are in place for seniors and students. There's always life buzzing in the cafes and bars around Sundance Square, too. Mosey down for open-air concerts in the summertime and oodles of Lone Star boutique shops – a new Stetson, perhaps?

Cheap ways to get around Fort Worth

Hotels in Fort Worth often come with their own area shuttle. That might mean free rides to the airport and back, or links with nearby shopping malls, the Stockyards, and the downtown. An alternative to that is the public transport network. It's vast, linking to Dallas, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and inner-city areas like Sundance Square for what's usually around a couple of dollars per ride. Sunny days make it possible to use the municipal bike share service, B-cycle. There are over 40 stations dotted around the central districts.
