Sundance Square is at the very heart of downtown Fort Worth. Spanning 35 blocks, it is the city’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment district and a must-see attraction for any visit. Spend a day perusing the boutiques and lounging in outdoor cafés before selecting from the many nearby restaurants, theaters and performance venues as the sun goes down.
Today, beautifully restored historic buildings stand here alongside shimmering skyscrapers in a delightful blend of old and new. Yet this district spent many years derelict before its impressive makeover. Take the time to appreciate the impressive architecture and feel the Old West atmosphere, which is still very present.
Enjoy the varied cuisines offered in Sundance Square. You will find endless choices, from authentic Texan diners to freshly prepared sushi and much more. Take a seat at an outdoor café under one of the large umbrellas and watch the crowds and the dancing fountains.
Pick up souvenirs of your trip in the boutiques lining the streets. Find everything from high fashion to funky one-of-a-kind clothing, as well as jewelry, art and cowboy boots.
When it comes to entertainment, Sundance Square puts on a great show. There are live theater performances in venues such as the acclaimed Bass Performance Hall, fascinating art galleries and well-resourced museums. In the evening, the lights of the jazz clubs, nightclubs and traditional saloon-style bars entice night owls.
Look for the large and eye-catching mural painted on the side of one of the buildings. It commemorates the Chisholm Trail, the great cattle trail which wove through here in the 1870s and is a vital part of Fort Worth’s cultural heritage.
Sundance Square is located in the middle of Downtown Fort Worth and is served by an extensive public transportation network. Car parks are available close by. Get the most out of your visit, however, by exploring the streets on foot, reveling in the atmosphere and stopping to look in the windows of all the inviting stores.
