We had a short time in Dallas/Ft Worth area and wanted to see a little bit of Texas. The Stockyards was a perfect spot. It is an old Texan town with streets paved in brick. You can walk by the stalls of longhorn cattle and watch the cattle drive through the streets twice a day. There are lots of restaurants... More

The place was packed and it felt like we stepped into the past with bull rides, horses and old trains. We loved it. I went to take photos with the costume one but the main one was a 4 hour wait so we found another one called " Uncle Charles". I have always wanted one but it was disappointing. His... More

We spent the afternoon at the stockyards. We ate lunch at The Trail Boss and watched the longhorn cattle drive. The kids paid 7.00 each and went through the cattle maze. It's old cattle pens turned into a maze. Next to the train station are all kinds of shops from a spice shop to an old record store. We really... More

I took my mother who wanted to see the daily cattle drive, and was not expecting anything other than cheesy touristy stuff. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a bit touristy, but not in a cheesy over the top way, but in the way anything like an old fashioned cowboy cattle drive and stockyard event might seem in this day... More

We stopped in as driving by and spent hours. Great fun for folks of all ages, be sure to bring a camera and a few dollars for pictures with the animals.

The boys loved shooting lazer guns and seeing the cattle drive. The girls enjoyed shopping and local food.

My son and I were scheduled to do a dude ranch experience. Despite years of riding lessons we had a hard time finding a place that would let a 9 year old on a horse alone. The ranch we were scheduled at was totally under water from the flooding. I couldn't leave Texas without my son riding a horse in... More

I liked the convenience and availability of this attraction. They take riders on a first come-first served basis, and there is no set time that you have to be there to go out on the trail. You and all of the children in your party have to have the same last name. I don't see how the legal waivers would... More

We stayed at the Stockyards RV "Park". They really shouldn't be allowed to call that a Park. It's nothing more than one row of parking spaces with hook-ups. We drove past it for several times, because we didn't recognize is as an RV Park. It was right next to the railways and the loud honking trains kept us up all... More

This was a real interesting place in reading about its history and seeing the "Long Horn" Cattle that they parade thru the streets by Cowboys twice a day. Those Long Horn Cattle are big and interesting. The "Flea Market" is now a bargain center with a lot of restaurants and interesting shops.
