Getaway from Midterms and Finals

By Louie Canela
On November 20, 2014

Midterms have approached us and finals are only a couple of weeks away. Dustdevils are all around campus occupying the library study rooms or Skylab computers­­ getting ready for their exams. During these crucial times we must remember that we should take time for ourselves and not drive ourselves to the brink of exhaustion. Take a weekend off and dedicate it to  yourself. Plan a weekend to pamper yourself, or better yet, go on a getaway! There are many cities that have a lot to offer that are close to Laredo.

One city that stands out that is often overseen is Fort Worth, Texas. When one thinks of the DFW area, Dallas automatically comes to mind. However, Fort Worth is a city of its own that has much to offer to Texans. Take a getaway from your studies and clear your mind in the City of Cowboys and Culture. While on your trip consider visiting the following which are full of art, shopping, family rich activities, live music and dancing, and best of all Texas History.


·         Kimbell Art Museum

·         Bass Performance Hall

·         Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo

·         West Magnolia Avenue

·         Fort Worth Zoo

·         Fort Worth Shopping District

·         Billy Bob’s Texas (The Largest Country Bar in the Nation)

·         The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame

·         Log Cabin Village

·         National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame

·         Fort Worth Botanical Gardens

·         Trinity River

The City of Fort Worth is the fifth largest city in Texas. The fun, friendly, and welcoming city will have you wanting to come back and visit! The amount that there is to do in the city cannot be done in one trip. Finals don’t have to be overwhelming and stressful. Whether it’s Fort Worth or another city around Texas or the nation, take some time for yourself Dustdevil! You deserve it!
