If you want to have a taste of what Texas used to be, don't miss a visit to this place. We went to the cattle walk at 11:00, had lunch at Riscky's BBQ and then went to the rodeo show. What a great way to...More

The Main Street is full of cafe's, old wares shops and quirky souvenir shops. The walking of the longhorns is interesting for overseas city folk. Probably allow yourself about 2 hours in the morning to do it all.

We went to check out the shops expecting to find more local crafts and artists. But there were mainly commercial and t-shirt type shops with a lot of the same things: cowboy hats/boots/belts, t-shirts, olive oil, Texas tourist items. And it cost $7 to park....More

We had an amazing time at the Fort Worth Stockyards. We tried to take in as much as we could in the few hours we had. I highly recommend this attraction to anyone visiting Texas.

A fun place to visit, particularly during the evening. Gives a taste of TX with the gents and ladies in their TX hat and boots. Also, nice stores and restaurants.

Very touristy destination, but it was a fun experience. The Longhorn drive was short, but they were amazing to see in real life. Didn't really like the whole saddle up a Longhorn and take pictures on them, but did enjoy seeing the drive. Fun area...More

I love this place. I especially like out back where all the cattle used to be in pens. Love walking along the catwalk looking down and imagining all the noise and activity of yesteryear.

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.
