A remnant of the old west preserved. Old stores, railyards. Well organised cattle drive up the main drag. Real cowboys (according to the guide) using their herd of 18 authentic Longhorn Cattle. Old general store and period buildings. Worth a visit.

My daughter, several friends and I had an intertaining day at the Stickyards. Lots to see and do as we waited for Longhorns cattle drive. Lots of vendors without pressure. Intertaining acting on the streets. Interesting shops, of course the normal shops, but, food, olive...More

I did like the tourist shops in town. I am not used to farm animals and didn't like the smell. I wasn't sure why people even went to be honest.

Every day they have the “cattle drive” at 11 and 4. On the weekends they also have a “gun fight” after the cattle drive. Good food and drinks and shopping. Restaurants have misters so you can eat outside.

Worth the time and effort to see the stockyards. Lots of nice shops. Take a picture on one of the saddled docile Longhorns. Watch the cattle drive. Very Old Texas.

Dissenting from all the great reviews, this is a total skip. Tourist trap, you learn very little (even in the 'museum' where folks are friendly, but that's as far as it goes. Miles of souvenir stores and carnival type food (some restaurants though) and nothing...More

I was traveling for business, and my wife and youngest son accompanied me. They like to hang out at the hotel pool and find something close by to enjoy. The Stockyards proved to entertain well! They thoroughly enjoyed the various shops, activities, and restaurants while...More

We visited on a Sunday morning. This district is a tourist marriage of attractions/history/live animals/restaurants. There is no where else on earth where you can see a daily parade of longhorn cattle. We limited our time because the temp was nearing 100F but there were...More

There is free public parking by the Stockyards Station. There are also several paid parking lots mixed thru out the Stockyards and then of course, if you get there early enough, there's free parking on the street.

The cattle drives are every day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., weather permitting. The best place to watch is in front of the Visitor's Center at 130 E. Exchange Ave.
