So where should you take your visitors when they want to see quintessential Texas??? The FW Stockyards, of course. Where else can you see real cowboys on real horses meandering down the street behind several longhorn cattle? There's western clothes- hats (custom steamed) and exotic...More

Hey have you seen a cow drive? Watch modern cowboys drive a small heard of long horns right up the street. Its amazing to imagine how those guys lived and worked back then. Its a fun time with the family

This was such a fun place to visit - history, activities, great museums, good food and cold drinks! For Aussie visitors, it's a little like Sovereign Hill, without everyone being dressed in period costume.

We are going there this Tues - Thurs for the NBAA show and I was wondering if you can walk to the Stockyards from downtown and if so how long is the walk? Any recommendations on good eating places?

It's a little over a mile hike from the stockyards to old downtown Fort Worth. I enjoyed the steakhouse in old Fort Worth but they do have several places to eat there. There is a little mall there where we ate very good... More

By taxi or car, you're looking at about 15 minutes. Not really possible on foot.
Would love to get an opinion about the best hotel for the parade, as my husband cannot walk long distances.
