Fort-Worth is the fifth most populous city in Texas, and the 16th most populous in the United States. It's located in north-central Texas, just west of the city of Dallas. Together, the two create the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. As of the 2010 census, the population of Fort Worth was 741,206, but the entire Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area is home to over six million people. Fort Worth was settled in 1849 as an Army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. There is no other U.S. city that offers such a mix of well-preserved Western heritage with modern culture and artistic offerings. Fort Worth is home to an amazing number of museums. Just a few include the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, the Texas Civil War Museum, the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, and the Fort Worth Stockyards Museum. Downtown Fort Worth is known for its' Art-Deco-style architecture, and its' Sundance Square, which has well-preserved early 20th century buildings. Another thing Fort Worth is known for is its' natural gas wells - over 1,000 of them. They can be found all around the city, including some residential areas. Each well site is a bare patch of gravel about 2 - 5 acres in size, and most are surrounded by chain link fencing. Other places to visit include the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, and the Fort Worth Zoo, which is home to over 5,000 animals. This zoo has been named as a "top zoo in the nation" by Family Life Magazine, the Los Angeles Times and USA Today. In addition to all this, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is well-known for its' nightlife and restaurants, especially steakhouses, Tex-Mex, barbecue and authentic Mexican.
