Fort Worth Stockyards is a Must See

We were in Dallas for two nights in February, but took the whole middle day to drive to Fort Worth to see The Stockyards. We spent many hours here- watching a 20 minute film in... read more

Visited over Spring Break with my family ... fun place to spend about 2 hours with the family (9 y/o & 7 y/o). Although a bit over-the-top touristy (i.e., trying to pack every quintessential 'Texas Cowboy' ideal in to a 3-4 block area), it was fun to experience with the kids. The cattle drive, albeit very quick and unceremonious, was... More

We were in Dallas for two nights in February, but took the whole middle day to drive to Fort Worth to see The Stockyards. We spent many hours here- watching a 20 minute film in the tourism office since there was no walking tour that day; seeing the Texas Long-horn cattle herded down the main street (done twice a day)...

Great fun with a lot to see and do come early for parking to see the cattle drive traffic can back up as the crowd settles in.

We spent a week in Dallas and only made it to the Stock Yards our last evening. Better planning would have us checking out of our Dallas Hotel for the last day and night in the Stockyards. We ate at Booger Reds and it was great. There are several shops that offer unique and well priced items. Here is where... More

Make sure you stay for the cattle drive. It was fun to watch the Texas longhorns walk down the street, although you wish for more then a couple of dozen. With 2 teenage boys we manage to pry their phones at long enough for then to ride a mechanical bull and run the cattle gate maze. I think they like... More

Loved the Stockyards. We sat at an outside bar, Risckys to watch the parade. Great view as most of the people we crowded further down the street. Had the pleasure of a cocktail and great fried pickles. The streets are cobblestone/brick and look very old. There were some shops, not many. We did love the "The General Store" on the... More

We were recently on a large bus trip and this was one of stops we were really looking forward to. We arrived around 3:30 and were able to catch the big cattle drive( maybe 8-10 cows walking about a block, and done). The whole thing lasted maybe 10 mins. After that we went to go shopping and were sadly disappointed... More

Been to the Fort Worth Stockyards many times. It's always entertaining. Lots of people from all over the world to interact with that take their vacations there. Good food, Wild West shows in the street, cattle drives, music... it's fun. If you're in town you should definitely give it at least a couple of hours. Chances are you'll stay way... More

We went close to closing time so most of the stores and activities were done but the restaurants were still open and we were able to walk around anyway. Some stores were open though....think I read that they kept the area as close to how it was so pretty cool. I get the sense that parking is a pain though... More
