Frolicking in Fort Worth

Load up the bikes, pack the bags, and get ready for a fun weekend exploring west Fort Worth. We are going to park the car or RV and explore by bike. The bike path is appropriate for all ages - it's wide, flat, and paved for just about everywhere we are going. So pack appropriately and let's go.

If you have an RV, call Midtown RV Park and make a reservation or reserve a room at the Marriott Residence Inn or Fairfield Inn. Everything that we plan on doing is close to each of these locations and will be a pretty easy bike ride of less than 5 miles.

We like to plan this trip around some other event that is happening near by, for example: May Fest on the Trinity River, a rodeo or some other event at Will Rogers Coliseum, good music at Sundance Square, or a good play at Casa Manana. Check the City of Ft Worth's website to find some events of interest.

About two blocks from Midtown RV Park or a block from either of the hotels is the Trinity Trail. Perfect for biking, walking, or rollerblading Trinity Trails offers 30 miles of paved mostly flat trails. You can catch Trinity Trails (817-871-PARK) practically anywhere from Northside Drive and Samuels to Foster Park, just north of I-20. Depending on where you are staying, you can catch the trail on the north or south side of Trinity Park. Along the way, the Trinity Trails winds through Heritage Park, Trinity Park and Overton Park. Here is the link to a map of the trails.

Of course after all this exercise or just because you like to party, you'll need to enjoy some of the nightlife and the local haunts which are within 3 blocks of 7th and Currie. So check out and hang out at: Fred's, 7th Heaven, 6th Street, The Shamrock Pub, Chimys, or the Bronx Zoo Sports Cafe. Keep in mind that these are laid local joints. When we stay at Midtown RV Park, we ride bikes or it's an easy walk to any of them.
