Fort Worth Sundance Square is the heart of the North Texas city’s downtown area. It’s a wonderful place to eat, shop for Texas souvenirs, or enjoy an evening with or without children. Day or night, the atmosphere in Sundance Square is always vibrant, lively, and fun. With splash fountains, giant umbrellas that offer shade from the Texas sun, and an urban design that encourages public gatherings, the main plaza in Sundance Square is an open space that is not only functional but pretty.

Safety Sundance Square
Fort Worth’s has one of the safer downtown areas I’ve ever visited. Definitely keep your guard up anywhere you go, but in Fort Worth, there is a friendly “cowboy” feel. I like to call it Texas hospitality. People are more than willing to give you directions if you stop them on the street, and they’ll most likely do so with a big smile, and a “Welcome to Texas!”
