Traveling from Australia and staying in Dallas, I was always in search of the "real Texas" (cliché Texas, I guess). I certainly found that at the Fort Worth Stockyards district! We go there easily on the bus from Dallas and enjoyed an entire day walking...More

Historic place that has a proud people willing to share. The little shops and restaurants are great. The experience of a cattle drive is quite the experience. I would highly recommend a stop here.

If you want to experience what Texas is all about, you need to come to this place! It’s so much fun. There are old famous bars, great food. And they party late there!

Whilst in Dallas thought we’d spend an afternoon in the Stockyards area of Fort Worth. Was great to see the Wild West atmosphere, buildings, shops, cattle, way of life etc although we missed the cattle drive! By the time we left around 5.00pm however the...More

There is a lot of variety in the Fort Worth Stockyards to see. Most shops have a lot of good merchandise with a few having a lot of touristy junk. Good restaurants and bars. Lonesome Dove, H3, Risky's White Elephant, and Star Café are just...More

I'm not sure. We were there in the summer. I do know that you can walk up and buy a ticket. At least you could when I was there.
