loved visiting the area and thinking back to the way things were when Oklahoma was the western frontier.

My wife and I strolled around after a great steak dinner at Cattleman's Steakhouse. Mostly western wear and boot shops, but the 4 W Western Shop was interesting, as well as the Native-American art of White Antelope. Do you know what you smell when a cattle truck drives by? That is the smell of money in these parts.

Cowboy boots to fit all budgets from the cheap imported brands to the beautiful hand made in the US and every thing inbetween, you can even (without having to break the bank have them personal fitted at "Doc's" by Doc himself. The saddle stores still make and... More

We walked on a catwalk above hundreds of cattle that were to be auctioned that day. It was a profound visual experience, as well as a loud one with cattle mooing and snarling. It was filled with smells that my nose will never forget. It is important to go there on Monday morning because that is the auction day. We... More

Park and walk around to the many shop. Eat at Cattlemen's or walk south and on the east side is a mexican restaurant. Great place to buy your cowboy attire. Also, a Native American shop on south of Langston's.

This is free and there are no signs that really tell you where to go. But the stockyards are a fun experience. Walk on the catwalk and see all the livestock for sale. Sit in on an auction. My elderly in-laws really liked this. Lots of Western shops nearby.

We had lunch at Cattlemens and then wandered over to the pens where the livestock were. We walked over the catwalks above the cows. While we were standing there a woman walked by and told us cows were being sold over in that building so we made our way over and went in. Very interesting to watch the auction/sales taking... More

Best time to visit is when the auctions are on, I think it is very early Monday and Tuesday mornings. It was all very quiet when I visited. There is not a lot to do but still worth a visit. I walked there from Bricktown and it took about 35 minutes. Interesting statue at the crossroads.

Limited number of things to do here, but good Western Stores for shopping and The Cattlemans Cafe is the place to mingle with the Cattle Barons of Oklahoma, and it is worth taking a look at the Stockyards particularly if you are around on Monday or Tuesday when the Auctions are on. Nice monument where you turn of Main Street... More
