We enjoyed the time we spent in the district walking, shopping, visiting the catwalk over the herd and watching them walk down the street. Very nice set of steers. Children would really love it.

You wouldn't expect a stampeding herd of longhorns down a spectator lined street but I did expect a bit more spectacle than at most a dozen cattle who could almost certainly make this twice daily amble without the need for cow hands!

We took our grandchildren to the Fort Worth Stockyards Cattle Drive. Shows are twice daily at 11:30 and 4:00 and free. Worth the time, but only gives you a taste of a true cattle drive. Show last maybe 15 minutes, 4-5 cowboys on horses, maybe 20 Longhorns but you definitely get the idea. A treat for the kiddos, but very... More

We enjoyed getting to see the Longhorns at the cattle drive, which occurs twice daily in Fort Worth. There were not as many cows as I thought, and it only lasted a couple minutes, but it was neat to see, and the Cowboys and cowgirl came back later and let my two year old niece pet the horses. There were... More

Beautiful longhorn cattle walking right if front of you...great for kids or even adults like us! Parking is only 5.00 ALL DAY, so it is worth it. Arrive before 11:30, park and wait for the cattle, then head right into the visitors center-your walking tour starts at noon. :)

If you're in the Stockyards (which you should visit if you're in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, definitely time your visit to see the Herd. It's a bit cheesy, but super fun. Where else would you be able to see longhorns walk down the middle of town?
