5 awesome, unsexy things to do in Fort Worth
We hear Cowtown isn't sexy. Fine: We don't want it to be.
Fort Worth is the third least sexy city in America, says MissTravel.com. We don't disagree; there's not a lot about Fort Worth that exudes a spicy, naughty vibe. We like our Cowtown with a side of class, thankyouverymuch.
So rather that complain about yet another silly survey that pronounces a North Texas city the best or worst anything, we're here to show you that Fort Worth is awesomely unsexy in all the right places.
Here are five fabulous ways to enjoy the city that may not bring romance your way. Besides, what's love got to do with it?
1. Hit up Montgomery Street Antique Mall, a fabulous cavern of dusty stuff. Your boyfriend will most definitely break up with you if you make him come. But you will find the perfect Paint By Number for your eclectic half-bathroom.
2. Stuff your face with Melis tacos. This is best handled if you're hungover, wearing sweatpants. Your stomach might hate you later, but your mouth will love you now.
3. Take a Cowtown Segway Tour through Fort Worth's most Western sights. Wearing a plastic helmet and leaning slightly-forward-butnottoomuch is no way to exude sex. But you'll sure have a honky tonkin' good time seeing the sights without having to pedal.
4. Run the Cowtown Ultra. The hottest, fittest runner you know will be a stinking mess of limping, whimpering human waste after the notoriously hilly 30-plus mile route.
5. Volunteer for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. It doesn't get a lot more up-close-and-personal than this -- and you'll see the ins and outs of one of Fort Worth's most popular and culturally significant events. You'll also see a lot of cow pies, no bull sh*t.Follow @sblaskovich

MissTravel.com is a "destination dating website." Said another way, pretty people can travel for free if rich people offer financing for "mutually beneficial relationships." So, OK.
