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

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

If you are sightseeing in Fort Worth, this is the place to go. Such a step back in time, good food, fun things to see and do. A nice day trip. We watched the cattle drive, the shootout, looked at the longhorns hanging out, went...More

Like stepping back in time. They do the cattle drive twice a day if you want to catch it where they walk the cattle down from one end of the street to the other. A lot of shops and restaurants along the street. Most items...More

walking around the stockyards gives you a great taste of Texas. Cowboys, steer, shopping, food, etc.

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.
