12 Best and Fun Things To Do In Weatherford, Texas

This historic town is situated just 20 minutes away from Dallas/Fort Worth, but it feels like stepping back in time.

Whether you’re here for a moment, a day, or longer, you’ll quickly see why history buffs, western lifestyle aficionados, and people with a pioneer spirit have all come to appreciate Weatherford.

For starters, the town has been named the Cutting Horse Capital of the World due to its proximity to the National Cutting Horse Association headquarters and major events.

It’s also home to the magnificent Chandor Gardens, which combine the sophistication of a formal English garden with the intricacy of Chinese architecture.

There’s also plenty of shopping to be had in downtown Weatherford with its antique stores and specialty shops – many of which stock western memorabilia and ranch-style furniture.

The old-time Farmer’s Market is another must-see, where you can buy a range of locally-grown produce.

However, the star of the town is the recently renovated Parker County Courthouse, which you can view in all of its glory at Courthouse Square.
