Located just 26 miles west of Fort Worth off Interstate 20, Weatherford offers travelers a unique experience with a nostalgic driving tour through tree-lined lanes boasting a wealth of Victorian and turn-of-the-century homes. Weatherford’s historic downtown area features antique and specialty shops, as well as restaurants, housed in restored buildings. To enjoy the outdoors, visit the city’s new 3.6-mile-long Town Creek Hike and Bike Trail, which runs parallel to Santa Fe Drive.
Annual Weatherford events include the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Rodeo held in June; the Parker County Peach Festival and Peach Pedal Bike Ride on the Second Saturday in July; and Candlelight Tour of Homes, Christmas on the Square and Christmas Parade, all held in December. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday preceding the first Monday of each month, Weatherford hosts First Monday Trade Days.
