They were having a competition for a $1,000,000 prize and had a real rodeo. This was fabulous as we had never seen one personally! This was a fantastic experience and would highly recommend it if you have the opportunity!

Fort Worth stockyards are not that big and the famous attraction the cattle drive is only made of 3 or 4 cow boys and a dozen longhorns. It is only worthy to see these famous Texas breed. There are also a few shows of cowboys’ gunfights but those are mainly aimed at children. There are plenty of shops and restaurants... More

A MUST if you are in Dallas area! The "running of the bulls" was comical, and not quite what we expected, but highly entertaining. Lots of touristy shops to browse around in. The restaurant attached to the one Inn/Hotel in the town was set up as an old saloon on one side and dining on the other. Very nicely done... More

Being 21 and from England, like most young girls I dreamed of marrying a cowboy. THIS IS THE PLACE TO FIND ONE. We went and were completely taken a back, there are cool bars with live country music, great BBQ and the whole time you feel like you're on the set of a wild wild west film! Even the police... More

We have been there many times. When we have friends visiting, we always bring them to see the long horn parade! Then there are many fun places to eat in the area. Bar-B-Q especially good!

We walked around and did a bit of shopping....The general Store on the corner diagonal from the Cattleman was a great place for a huge... More

Lived here for a while but never actually walked through the stockyards doing the touristy thing. Went with a friend who just moved here and had a really great time. Lots of history and neat things to see, especially in the shops, there is a museum, and people watching. You can even take pictures with longhorns. Prices a little high... More

If you like the cowboy scene this is the place. Horses, longhorns and cowboys. It's good for an afternoon. And certainly appropriate for all ages. You can load up on cowtown souvenir stuff - some of it well made and some a little cheaper. There are some highly reputed restaurants in the area but some of them are priced more... More

Being a "local." it is very touristy, but if you wander off Main Street a little, you quickly find many other good Fort Worth places (smaller boot makers, etc) with better prices, etc. Lots of history hidden up and down the little alleys - just put on your walking shoes and find them. In particular, heading south (toward downtown) and... More

While in Fort Worth, you can see a cattle drive, visit the historic Stockyards, go out on a night on the town to Billy Bob’s Texas, shop for cowboy and western wear (like at M.L. Leddy’s famous bootmaking shop), stop in at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, or even stay in a haunted brothel! The historic Fort Worth Stockyard... More
