The main attraction of this are is the western ware and saddle stores. 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.

StockYard City is such an important piece of Oklahoma. It feels like a step back in time when you enter! Definitely a must visit!

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

Since my husband does raise beef cattle for a living we stopped here for some fun for him. It was really neat! 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
