Texas Traditions in Fort Worth
It seems that everyone in the whole country – no, the whole world – knows at least the basics of Texas culture. They know of classic cowboys and how they would drive cattle hundreds of miles for the ranching industry, of sprawling deserts and endless fields of grass, of open starry skies and no boundaries to be seen. While we may have moved on and advanced over the decades, there’s one part of Fort Worth that keeps its traditions intact, and at Alexan Summit you’re right next to all the action.
The Fort Worth Stockyards is a historic landmark, arena, and marketplace just north of downtown. It’s only four miles away from our luxury apartments, meaning that you can bring your loved ones to visit in just under fifteen minutes. The Stockyards brings the essence of an old Western film in each brick on the road, full of all kinds of scenic attractions like a rodeo stadium, a train station, and dozens of shops and restaurants. Every day, visitors can witness an old-fashioned cattle drive as modern cowboys escort dozens of longhorn cattle – Texas’ trademark cow – through the main square. Live rodeo tournaments and challenges play live at the Fort Worth Cowtown Coliseum every Friday and Saturday. Visit a wide variety of Western-inspired stores and restaurants, including fun souvenirs and keepsakes cowboy attire, candy, and fresh BBQ. Finally, special events cycle through every month, so there’s always something new and exciting to explore every season.
