We went to see the daily cattle drive through the historic stockyard district. It was very slow with only about 15 heads of cattle, but it was interesting to see the longhorns up close. The little downtown area is cute, with many historic buildings. There...More

Went to see the daily cattle drive. Not what we had thought it would be. Maybe 10-15 Longhorns walk around a block. Done in 10 minutes. Lots of trinket stores, which are always fun but overpriced. One visit is enough.

Stayed at Miss Molly's and was delighted with it's old world charm. Took the ghost tour and had a blast. Watched the cattle drive and a gunfight too. Great food and plenty of shopping.

A remnant of the old west preserved. Old stores, railyards. Well organised cattle drive up the main drag. Real cowboys (according to the guide) using their herd of 18 authentic Longhorn Cattle. Old general store and period buildings. Worth a visit.

My daughter, several friends and I had an intertaining day at the Stickyards. Lots to see and do as we waited for Longhorns cattle drive. Lots of vendors without pressure. Intertaining acting on the streets. Interesting shops, of course the normal shops, but, food, olive...More

I did like the tourist shops in town. I am not used to farm animals and didn't like the smell. I wasn't sure why people even went to be honest.

There is free public parking by the Stockyards Station. There are also several paid parking lots mixed thru out the Stockyards and then of course, if you get there early enough, there's free parking on the street.

The cattle drives are every day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., weather permitting. The best place to watch is in front of the Visitor's Center at 130 E. Exchange Ave.
