Wednesday nights from June through August
If you’ve never been up to the rooftop pool at the Adolphus Hotel, you’re missing out. The view is spectacular and the vibe is awesome. This summer on Wednesday nights, the hotel will be screening movies and converting its pool into a “swim-up theater.” The movies set for this summer include Jaws, Independence Day, The Parent Trap and plenty of others.
Cost: Admission is free to hotel guests and the public.
Saturdays in July and August
Panther Island Pavilion
Grab a tube, then float on down the Trinity River from Panther Island Pavilion. While you’re sitting in the water, enjoy live music and rock in the river. The Rockin’ the RIver music series goes on every Saturday in July and August, so you’ll have plenty of chances to make it out to Fort Worth this summer.
Cost: General admission is free. Tube rentals are $6.
