12 Ideas for Rainy Day Fun in Fort Worth


Well the doom and gloom of rainy weather has found itself back in Fort Worth once again, but no need to fear. Rainy days don’t have to be a drag – in fact, they can be fun. Here is a list of things to do that’ll make you cheerier than the cast of Singin’ In The Rain.

1. Watch it pour, while pouring a glass of wine at Kent & Co.

They say when it rains it pours, and at Kent & Co., that is surely the case. While it pours outside, grab a hefty pour of wine and relax. Let go, and let the day’s worries wash away with the rain and the wine.

2. Stay dry at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

Museums are always a great rainy day activity, but The Modern offers more than that. Not only are there entertaining exhibits, but with its massive open windows, it is the perfect place to watch a storm rage. There is also a cafe located wtihin the museum, making it easy to grab a bite to eat without encountering a drop of rain.

3. Catch up at Avoca.

A grey, rainy sky practically begs for a trip to the coffee shop. Take this as an opportunity to catch up with old friends, or perhaps on a heavy workload.

4. Don’t go stir-crazy – go to Stir Crazy.

What better excuse to eat some baked goods than a rainy day? With tasty treats and large open windows, Stir Crazy is a great place to indulge while watching the weather rain down on Fort Worth.

5. Get mashed at Mash’d.

If the rain starts pouring on a weekend, hit up Mash’d for brunch and indulge in its $2 Mimosa Madness. Known for its extensive selection of drinks, specifically moonshine, Mash’d is the place to drink the day away – or at least an hour or two.

6. Warm up and watch a movie at Movie Tavern.

Movies are always a great idea when it rains, and Movie Tavern is no exception. Plus, you can order food and drinks without leaving your seat, which makes it much more exciting.

7. Put on cowboy boots, not rain boots.

No need for rain boots in Fort Worth, instead put on cowboy boots and head to Billy Bob’s Texas. Thankfully, this Fort Worth favorite is indoors, making it a great option for a rainy evening. If lucky enough, there might even be a country concert occurring at the same time.

8. Cook up something tasty at Central Market.

If in need of sharpening up one’s cooking skills, or simply learning how to cook, the rain brings the perfect opportunity to do just that. Central Market offers a variety of cooking classes, and if the timing is right, they just might fall on a rainy day. This is a great indoor activity that will benefit everyone beyond the class, even when the sun is shining.

9. Break a sweat.

Barcadia boast tons of games, drinks and food. But the best part is it’s indoors, which makes it the perfect place to hang during a rainy evening.

12. Sing in the rain at Sundance Square.
