A great experience and some nice shopping. The cattle goes out in the morning (10a?) and back in the afternoon (330?) and it's wonderful fun to see the cowboys herding them down the street from the sidewalk. Being that close to a Longhorn steer with their 6 foot plus wide horns is REALLY impressive!!

It was fun to see longhorn cattle up close. There were a lot of places to see, many folks in cowboy garb, big variety of shopping and eating spots (we chose Coopers BBQ). Next time I'm back we'll try to be there for the cattle drive down main street and stay for the rodeo. Fun piece of history!

The stockyards was a very nice area to stop for the afternoon and evening. Lots of great food--expect a long wait though! Interesting shops to look through. It was very busy with the weekend crowd and lots of traffic around the area. Make sure to take the trolley for only $3.50, that was the best way to get there and... More

Great place to experience all things cowboy! Can get crowded in the evening if you want to dine out. Lots of touristy things to do, great western experience and lots of Texas goodies to buy. If you like the West - don't miss.

They walk the cattle down the cobblestone street twice a day, at 11:30 am and 4:00 pm. Aside from the usual souvenir shops and restaurants, a kid can navigate a maze, ride a mechanical bull, or get his photo atop a steer. The visitors center was closed when we were there on a Sunday morning. Would like to come back... More

A friend took us here and we absolutely loved it! They put on plays, there was a fun maze,a petting zoo, we got to see the cattle walk, there was life country music and then there was a room to go and shoot zombies and so much more! Loved it!

I LOVE the Stockyards!!! It's touristy, silly, quaint, fun, and a perfect way to spend a few hours, with or without kids! We go every time we're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Decent food (actually better than decent), some pretty good places to hang out and have a beer or two, and of course, Billy Bob's (note-if you just want... More
