If you are in Fort Worth, check out the stockyards museum and all of its rich history and the cattle drive up and down the streets. So much to learn about the cattle industry and its business side as well.

This historic area is very interesting. The restaurants are fun but the food is only fair. The shops are generic.

The museum was fun. It's full of artifacts from the 19th and early 20th centuries, including a light bulb that's been continuously burning for over 100 years and a "cursed" wedding dress. Even more fun is the cattle drive they hold twice a day. The...More

We visited here during a family trip. It was full of interesting tidbits of history, and was also a small gift store, so you are paying to shop as well as learn. It was minimal though, and worth the donation to see such interesting stuff.
