When driving through Stockyards your transported into that era. The brick and cobble stone pave streets and sidewalks are beautifully recreated. The shops are affordable, the food has outstanding flavor with authentic dishes.I love walking around the stockyards with an ice cream cone, or a warm or cold beverage enjoying the horses, buggies, the cowboy and girls hats, boots and...

If you want to feel like you're in the Wild West this is the place to go. It's a great place to look around. There's some brilliant places to eat and the shopping is great. You don't really need more than a few hours there. They do a cattle drive through the streets around 11am and 4pm each day which... More

We loved the Stockyards. My children were overall disappointed in Forth Worth, they were expecting Texas to be different than the rest of the country. But coming to the Stockyards proved to be that little bit of Texas that they were desiring to see. Everyone was so friendly. There is a cattle drive twice a day, though much much smaller... More

The Fort Worth Stockyards are a very interesting place to visit for a newcomer to the Ft Worth area. Alive with history, there are so many stories to be told and sites to see. Great restaurants are just part of the attraction. The old cattle pens and train tracks are pretty cool to see as well as the cattle drives... More

Great tourist place with lots to do and great shops for those unusual presents or treats. The longhorns are the main attraction

Got here about 30 minutes before the morning longhorn cattle drive and got a great free park on the street. There are lots of bars and restaurants in the area, an excellent visitor center with lots of information and a great mural, longhorns along the street that you can pay to sit on and have your picture taken (if that...

Nice place to have a stroll, to check out some interesting history and to have a touch of western life. The daily longhorn drive is a spectacle not to miss, truly unique. The place is quite well managed and commercialized, cow boys and girls ready to pose for photos, western style shops, restaurants, and some historical venues that kids may... More

I grew up in Fort Worth as a kid and remember the stockyards as a part of town where everyone just went to party. After a great renovation process they've been able to restore buildings, put in great shops, reroute the Tarantula train through the area, open nice restaurants and in the process preserve the history of the Stockyards. I... More

It was neat to see, but really it's just a bunch of gift shops and restaurants, a couple of museums and a bull. Fun for a family outing but maybe just for an hour or so.

It has been 30 year since I last visited and buy, was I glad I stopped. Several items for review: 1) Parking is $7.00 and unless one is lucky, it isn't any cheaper anywhere else. 2) A must-see is the small museum inside the auction building. Entrance fee is only $2 and the place is small but there is no... More
