I have been working in a near-by town for 5 months with people asking, "You been to the stockyards?" I wish I had been sooner because I loved it. Coming from the South and raised around animals, I felt right at home. It has the feel of the old west with the rustic town buildings and the smell of manure.... More

Be prepared to have to pay for parking for the day. And also know that everything costs money- except if you are just walking around. They definitely become borderline tourist-trap-esque by charging $5.00 to sit on cattle. Really? The buildings are beautiful, though. Worth the trip there.

The Ft. Worth Stockyards is a must go to place to bring out of town company. Everyone who we have brought just loved it. If you don't want to drive you can catch the Tarantula Express in Grapevine and add the experience of riding in an old time railcar. Our grandkids thought it was "very neat". The Stockyards have the... More

The weather was perfect for our afternoon at the stockyard. We stopped in the local shops, admired the horses etc, and ate a great meal at a local salon.

Spent a day here during a girls weekend. There are things to do no matter what your age. Sit on a longhorn bull for $5, watch a cattle drive, shop and have a drink in a real cowboy bar.

We went to the Ft. Worth Stockyards so we could watch the Longhorn catlle drive. The area is great with all of the shops and restaurants. The cattle drive is amazing!! The longhorn cattle had HUGE horns! It was a great experience; I would definitely like to watch it again sometime.

The highlight (which occurs at 11 am and 4 pm) is the Longhorn Cattle Drive, but browsing the local shops is a treat as well. The longhorns are huge! Cowboys on horseback were very friendly and willing to take pictures with you and the horses. A fun time!

This one for sure give a feeling of how things were handled in the past. The entire area is full of so many good eateries and local souvenirs. I was completely taken back into the time and had memorable experience.
