This was a fun afternoon excursion. Of course, it is a bit of a tourist trap, they nickle and dime you for most of the museums. But the steer drive was neat, and the history is interesting to a farm boy like me. I recommend...More

I really enjoyed see the longhorns being moved down the street. Even though it is staged it was still fun to see.

Not off the beaten path, if you will, but right in the heart of it all. This district gives one the real feel of what it was like in earlier times. Stores are a plenty with western items. Restaurants are quite plentiful with your choice...More

The Stockyards are very interesting. They have a lot of western history that is inclusive of all people. Allocate an entire day to visit the many shops and sight see.

This is a great place to visit especially weekends. Lots of construction right now but they’ve improved Cow Camp for kids and have trail rides available too.

The Fort Worth Stockyards were lots of fun. Music on the street, a cattle drive, shopping, and tons of food choices. What more could you ask for? Overall everyone was friendly and we had a great time.

There are lots of shops and places to eat along with museums and sights to see all within an easy walking distance from each. They drive the longhorns down main street a couple times a day, they are spectacular. Fun way to spend the day.

Watch the cattle drive in front of the coliseum. The cattle drive only lasts about ten minutes.

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.
