Exchange was much like it was 20+ years ago when I was last there. A few names over the doors had changed but it had the same feel. Burgers at Tim Loves' place (fab!), the Herd (a bit anticlimatic-were the longhorns drugged?) and a BRILLIANT rodeo experience for my English children at the Cowtown Coliseum.

Lots of people walking the streets and enjoying the crowds. The rodeo was sold out so we stopped for bbq. Spent some time watching the horses warm up behind the coliseum. Just a pleasant evening, even though we had to park in the last parking lot!

Loved walking up and down the street and going to all the shops. Saw the cattle drive and loved it. Nice place to visit

Definitely a tourist area but we had a very good time walking around visiting the shops, walking into the lobby of the old hotel, wandering thru the Exchange Building and the shops and restaurants in the old mule barn areas. Everyone was having good clean fun. The longhorns on the sidewalk for photos gave us a close up look.

We took our out of state friends this past week end. We walked up Exchange and then back down Exchange. You must be careful walking as the side walk is uneven and there are some steps up and some down.. so watch as you walk. There are many little shops and many bars/eating establishments. As you walk up Exchange.. you... More

Great restaurants and shops. Cowboys on horses, bulls you can sit on to have your photo taken and a twice daily longhorn cattle drive. An absolute must!

get your favorite t-shirt or cowboy hat at any of the shops on Exchange Ave. It's fun looking back into the Old West.

Exchange Ave has multiple shops selling mostly country gear, authentic, fun and different. Most of what you find here would not be available elsewhere. There are restaurants for all taste buds, steak, burgers, barbecue etc. No hustle, bustle here, just kicked back and relaxed.

Lots of restaurants, shops, and a couple of bars on Exchange. Very historical and fun to do even if you are a local.

It's a tourist trap but fun none the less. Check out Cowtown Winery, they have some pretty decent wines. Lots of honky tonks and watering holes. Old but fun. This place is local travel for my wife and I.
