Had a great time - lots to see and do, with many options for dining. Definitely recommend the world's largest honky tonk which is in this area :)
This a nice, calm place to go shopping and take a stroll. There is good food and entertainment. Billy Bobs usually has a great line up of musicians. There is a cattle drive that goes down the street that if fun to watch.
Interesting area which unfortunately has become very touristy where there's a charge for everything including an odd maze and photoes of visitors sitting on unhappy looking longhorns. Would love to see a less cluttered historic area with fewer kitschy stores.
We enjoyed the stampede. I especially enjoyed watching and hearing how the cowboys kept the steer in line. Parking was $5/day. It is definitely a touristy area but it is fun. You can see the stampede, tour the shops and eat in a half-day.
I highly recommend the cattle drive that takes place everyday at 10 am and again at 4 pm (double check times). It is a herd of long horns that the (real) cowboys are taking out to graze. It is free and really cool. There are no fences so you are on the curb as the cattle go by. I've been... More

See the cattle drive. Take in the... More

I've seen clubs a attractions come and go but the place never really changes. A trip back in time with something for every visitor. Best time to visit... More
I sure hope this isn't the philosophy of the area in general, but I was appalled by the behavior of the security guard and how he treated me. Being a disabled vet, my leg isn't so good and I cannot bend down. My son could not see the street show, so I wanted to put him on my shoulders like... More
There is so much history associated with the Fort Worth Stock Yards; that to really understand the old west, you have to see Where the West Begins. This city was the home to all of the best known outlaws and lawmen of the post Civil War era. The first face to face fast draw shootout, the first train robbery, the... More
