Local Travel: Western Destination

Downtown Fort Worth has a lot to offer—way more than just cowboys and cattle! Just a 40-minute drive from Dallas County, the Omni Hotel in Sundance Square features luxurious rooms and services with little travelers in mind, and it’s within minutes of the city’s top family-friendly attractions.

The hotel’s Omni Sensational Kids program helps kids feel welcome at the hotel, with games, books and a kid-sized backpack upon check-in. Dining is a breeze, too, with kid-friendly menu choices available at the hotel’s restaurants.

Parents will receive a list of fun local hot spots, including the Fort Worth Zoo and Stockyards Station. Free trolley service is available from 7am-11pm daily (routes can be viewed at www.mollythetrolley.com). Sundance Square offers plenty of fun, too, with cool shops (try an ice-cold Dublin Dr Pepper at Retro Cowboy!) and fun annual events (don’t miss the holiday classic Chesapeake Energy Parade of Lights at 6pm Nov. 27).

The hotel has plenty for mom and dad to love, too, like an in-hotel Starbucks, a wine bar and the renowned Bob’s Steak and Chop House. Book some time at Mokara Spa and be pampered with a Texas Stone Facial ($120) or a Sweet Tea Body Gloss ($90).

Get a deluxe room, complete with Texas décor, for around $127 per night, or spring for the Omni Flip Out Package, which comes with a pancake breakfast and the use of Pure Digital’s Flip video camera during your stay, for $248 per night.
