A lot of our prospective guests are interested in jogging or other exercise while they stay at our Fort Worth bed and breakfast, and in most cities the options are limited. I jogged for 30 years but never found it too healthy to jog on major roadways! Between not being able to breathe and having to stop for traffic, I just never saw the benefit. Anyway, that is not a problem here. We have a beautiful neighborhood just a few steps outside our front door that provides about 3 miles of scenic, quiet streets. The homes were built in the 1920s and 1930s and provide interesting architecture to look at if you can do two things at once! And the Trinity Trail is about .5 miles to the west down a tree-lined, neighborhood street. If you’re not familiar with the Trinity Trail, it’s a bike and jogging path, most of which is paved, stretching southwest along the Clear Fork of the Trinity River from north of downtown Fort Worth. Jogging the entire trail will allow you to cover about 15 miles. So, now you have no excuse. You can enjoy our delicious breakfasts, eat out every night you’re here, and still keep the calories off and feel good about getting some time away. Sounds like you ought to do it soon.

The Texas White House is proud to announce that we have a yoga instructor who will come to our bed and breakfast for individual or couple sessions during your stay with us. It is especially nice to have these exercise sessions early in the morning or after sundown in the Texas Star Gardens, surrounded by flowers and the waterfall sounds of our fountains. We already have the winter honeysuckle in bloom and in just a few weeks, there will be more early spring flowers in the gardens. Add to that a cool, crisp morning, and you have the perfect setting for a good yoga workout. Advance booking is required; so, let us know the next time you’re coming to Fort Worth, and we’ll reserve you a time.

- Snowman, thanks to Jordan & David, guests at The Texas White House
You probably have heard that Fort Worth and Dallas received an all-time record snowfall of over 9 inches on February 11, but you also need to know that our bed and breakfast also recorded a new record, coincidentally of over 9 inches! Other than at ski resorts, I have never seen this much snow at one time; it is truly a winter wonderland and a wonderful experience despite what our friends in the northeast are saying! I even got to use a snow shovel to clear the walkways. Wow! What fun! And good exercise. That snowman is over 5 feet tall! I want to thank our guests, Joey, Kerry, Jordan and David, whose excitement at being a part of this event made the day even more beautiful.

Ride your bike FROM our bed and breakfast, too! It’s just a short ride on residential streets to Fort Worth Trinity Trail, 15 miles each way of bike and jogging paths along the Trinity River. And we will store your bike safely while you’re not using it. Or we can even try to have a bike ready for rental from Panther City Bicycles, right around the corner on Magnolia. So, now you have no excuse to get your bike riding exercise and have a getaway weekend all at the same time!
