National Cowgirl Museum, Fort Worth

I was pleasantly surprised by Fort Worth. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I loved the cool, old west feel of some parts of the city, the friendly people, good food and diverse attractions. I visited the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame, which was great. I could have definitely gotten pulled into the gift shop for a while, had I more time. The museum is dedicated to women who have exemplified the Western spirit. I saw photos of cowgirls on the empire state building, marveled at these artistically decorated saddles and gloves and oh and ahhed at the old black and white photographs of babies in cowboy hats, and interesting women adventurers.
