My 12 year old grandson and I went to the stockyards of Ft Worth recently to see the" cattle drive" and I was surprised at the number of people who were there on a week day in hot June. Now, being from Texas, I have seen cattle drives and this is not exactly that. But it is a fun and... More

We went to watch the cattle drive, we enjoyed the Cowboy Musem, the many shops where all pleasant to visit. We enjoyed a great meal at Riscky's Steak House.. The misters shure where a welcome cooling event. I was particularly impressed with the reasonable prices for a tourest event.

It was sure fun seeing the city folks get up around the big longhorns and act silly having their pictures taken. And also talking to the "cowboys" they met on the street. It was a fun little excursion, and if you are looking for Texas themed tourist knick-knacks they will have it in one of the shops. I would recommend... More

Kids get to see close up longhorns, horses, even a camel. The people are very friendly and an overall good experience. Then, make sure to take a walk around town and check out some of the shops. Neat old town for sure.

Fort Worth is an old town in a big city. It's hard not to like this place. Even though we visit often we are never disappointed. From the Stock yards to the Zoo there is plenty to do here with your family. The Stock Yards is a must see do not pass this gem up. There are shops and places... More

I had not visited the old stockyards before we went to this year's 'Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering' at the end of October. (Which was a LOT of fun) The old buildings are in great shape and all renovations have been done with an authentic feel that gives the place a great atmosphere. It was the perfect place for all of...

Weather was really hot but we all still enjoyed walking through the area, watching the longhorn cattle drive, checking out the train that arrived and having beer for the adults and milkshakes for the kids at the same place. This is a great place for the whole family to have a good time without spending a lot of money.

The stockyards are an interesting place to visit and learn some Texas history. Has points of interest, great food, shops, and a cool lil cattle drive plus more. So worth stopping by.
