Lived in Fort Worth for many years and always enjoyed bringing visitors to the Stockyards. The shops, restaurants and the entertainment were all with an Old West flavor.

you gotta check out the stockyards. LOTS of souvenir junk shops and restaurants add to the kitschiness of this place for the tourists and could be better if they didn't charge for parking and admission to the museum which we bypassed as a result of...More
