We stopped here to look at the shops and grab something to eat before going to the zoo. Our kids loved the mechanical bull ride and photos on the Longhorn. Cattle Drive was really cool. Definitely worth a stop.

This was totally awesome!!! Loved the king horned cattle. Their parade was gentle and the big fellows were managed with respect and care. Afterwards they’re available all day to check out. Great restaurants and yes tourist stuff in shops but different prices for each wallet....More

There is a lot of history in this area. Many shops, restaurants and bars. Try to make time for the cattle drive. It is very quick, but cool to see them up close.

I'm not sure. We were there in the summer. I do know that you can walk up and buy a ticket. At least you could when I was there.
