    We live in Fort Worth, and if you're looking for a more typical "TX experience" I would NOT go to Dallas. The east side of the metroplex is stuffed full of snotty people who have forgotten what being a Texan is all about (sorry).

    You HAVE to go to the Fort Worth Stockyards. Start dinner at the Lonesome Dove (rather expensive, but worth every penny). Stop at the White Elephant on the corner of North and Main to have a few drinks. Then make your way to Billy Bobs TX singers are always playing there. They have the mechanical bull, the biggest dance floor ever, and bull riding in the bar (though amature, still okay). Stay at the Stock Yards hotel. It's amazingly beautiful! Each room has its own theme, and it's one of the oldest standing hotels in the area. FYI - My fiancee and I meet at Cadillacs in North Main ST.

    Next day, drive down New Braunsfuls and go float the river. If you're looking for a crazier time, float the Guadalupe. If you want something more quiet then float the Comal. Basically, you rent a tube, sit in it all day, drink beer and get wasted! It's so much fun, you'll have a blast.

    BBQ - yes, Rudy's is great, but it's a chain. On your drive back to the Metroplex, take highway 67 up through Marble Falls (soooo beautiful) and stop at Hard 8's in Stephenville. I guarnatee it is the BEST DANG BBQ you will ever have in your life.

    Let us know how it goes. Feel free to contact me if you want!

      Good call on driving up through Marble Falls Jenna. That Hill Country drive is so pretty!

      All of this Texas talk is making me crave a hot July day, floating on the Comal with an ice cold frosty beverage in hand, singing at the top of my lungs to Robert Earl Keen!!!! Summer where are you?
