Fort Worth sits in north-central Texas, about 30 miles west of Dallas. Together, the two cities represent the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. You'll find plenty of options in and around the DFW! Feel like getting in some outdoors exercise? Head about 30 minutes southwest from Fort Worth to reach Cedar Hill State Park. Mountain bikers will be happy to find the twisty, challenging Dorba Trail made specifically for them. Three other hiking-only trails in the park provide less strenuous options. Nearly 400 tent camping sites and an RV park allow for overnight stays. Are you looking for some waterfront fun? Lake Mineral Wells State Park, about 45 minutes west, provides easy access to its titular lake. Post up on the picnic tables for a lakeside meal with friends. Free Wi-Fi is available, excellent for working from the road. If you're coming in the summer, look out for oppressively hot, humid weather. Expect highs hovering around 100 degrees for much of June to August. Early spring is the best time to go. Temperatures from March to May range from high 60s to mid-80s. That said, take note that May can be surprisingly rainy.
