We had a large group of 13 go together to the stockyards. We had such a great time walking around to each store. Everything is done so well and made to look like the old west. We walked around for several hours. I will say to skip the cattle drive bc it lasted about 30 seconds and wasn't worth it.

Family in from out of town thought we'd show them a little of what Fort Worth had to offer. Had fun showing the the cattle drive and the down to the hotel to sit on a saddle and have a drink!! Then to the gift shop down the street for souvenirs.

From all you can beef ribs ribs to gunfights, the Stockyards has it all.Walk thru exclusive Texas shops and drink a real Dublin Dr Pepper. Shoot you can even ride a train to Grapevine if you want. Come visit and actually stand where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid roamed the streets.

Get there in time for the cattle drive! Then visit the herd to see their beauty up close. Don't get caught in the tourist souvenir shops but step off the main streets to see the old buildings and the museums.

Expected a little more with all the hype. Lots of places to eat and several gift shops. Clothing shops do not have big selection and are expensive, but still a must do if you are in the area.

Visit to enjoy the history and culture of Fort Worth. We enjoyed seeing the live herd of cattle going down the street with real Cowboys. The museums and shops were very interesting and affordable. Loved the variety of food offered by the restaurants from Barbecue to Steaks!

I went with my daughter and two granddaughters last weekend. We had a delicious meal at Riscky's BBQ always a great place to eat. The granddaughters enjoyed going through the maze. We watched the Longhorns strolled down the street. It is also a great place to play Pokemon go. We enjoy all the different activities that are available there to... More

If you go near downtown Ft. Worth, you must visit The Stockyards! Real live cowboys conduct a cattle drive every day at 11:00AM. There are many attractions including a live shoot out, robotic bucking bull, train rides for kids, & a stagecoach trip around the stockyards. There's also a kids petting zoo. Many places to eat within walking distance and... More
