As Scottish, I think of Stetson clad locals wearing cowboy boots and herding cattle - well, not really. However if you want to experience this side of Texas, this is the place to go. They actually herd longhorn cattle down the street twice a day...More

Not much to do other than see the cattle and attend one of the two cattle drives. Shopping area has a deserted flea market feel to it with trinket type shops. No entrance fee, but you do have to pay to park.

Fun place to visit in Ft Worth. Great shopping, including Leddy's custom-made cowboy boots, boutiques and tourist kitsch (we also liked the used record store in Stockyard Station). The cattle drive on Exchange Ave is a must-see, as is The Stockyards Hotel. The H3 restaurant...More

You feel like you are in old western times. Cattle Drive is worth seeing as well as the stock pens. Rodeo was good, public seating in the middle has good views, just get there a bit earlier for a good seat. Plenty of restaurants and...More

This place was just average. We were expecting a lot better. The famous cattle drive was about 10-15 longhorns walking a few hundred feet on the road. The shops in this district all have the same merchandise, and it's all overpriced. That goes for the...More

Everyone should visit the Stockyards at least once. That said, it is very much like most of the other tourist meccas (ie. Gatlinburg, Branson), only with a western theme. What sets the Stockyards apart is definitely the cattle drive! They run twice daily and it...More

Well executed conversion to retail and entertainment precinct. If you get there early I believe you can get really cheap parking but even the $10 all day is still pretty reasonable. Fantastic longhorn cattle drive twice a day , plenty of retail therapy and food...More

Daytime: wear comfortable shoes and plan to pay dearly for parking. Choose your restaurant for lunch ahead time in order to prevent a group argument, because there are lots of great choices. H3 has great steaks, as well as the the original Cattleman's Steakhouse. Have...More

So for the most part I can sum up this place a kitschy crap and experience parking. Take any kind of tourist destination (Jackson Hole, Niagara Falls, etc) and substitute "Fort Worth Stalkyards" for whatever other name and you have seen what this place offers....More

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.
