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

We checked out where the sale was held (sale day is Monday, and, I think, Tuesday) on Sunday night and where the Cattleman's Restaurant was located. Monday after visiting the Oklahoma City Memorial we ate at the Restaurant.... More

People talked about Stockyards, why? My wife and I drove past and kept going for about 15 minutes then we did a U-Turn. Here is my honest humble opinion, don't go unless you have a very high interest in seeing a tourist trap and a very small piece of OKC history. We are talking about three blocks of shops and... More

The Stockyard Exchange Building is on Exchange, west of Agnew past the National Stockyards sign, several blocks. That is what this term Stockyard Exchange refers to and not to the commercial shopping district, normally just referred to as the Stockyards. The Exchange has offices relating to cattle trading and dates back to the 1980's. It replaces an earlier structure which... More

great western stores, Cattlemans steakhouse is wonderful and lots of history in that place. the stockyards are interesting to see when there is a sale going on as you can walk out over the cattle in the stockyards and look down on them. many western stores from leather goods to hats to western wear

We stayed in a hotel just 10 minute drive from the Stockyard. We were surprised by the number of western shops in the Stockyard. Look for the right price visit all the shops and get a good deal by comparing the prices.
