Usher in the New Year 2013 in Fort Worth

The city of Fort Worth, founded in 1849, was as a military outpost, named after a general in the Mexican-American War. The city quickly gained in importance because it was on the Chisholm Trail, which was the main route used for transporting cattle from western Texas and Kansas to train stations. The tourist image of the “City of Cowboys and Culture” builds on this past. The Stockyards and the surrounding neighborhoods are by far the major tourist attractions and when it comes to embodying the old-Texas style and swagger that is so specific to the state, the city rules. Whether it's, honky-tonk music or feel-good saloons, championship rodeo, Fort Worth can deliver a satisfying stay to tourists and New Year’s Eve 2013 revelers alike.
