Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, Fort Worth

4.5
Nestled in the old town heart of the city, the epicenter of the western cattle industry comes to life at Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. The stockyards today are the last of their kind in America and retain their Wild West charm. Stroll through the town to experience, Texas barbecue, real leather boots, and cowboy hats. Get down and dusty at a rodeo or western show, or slosh back a cold one at the old-time saloon. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Fort Worth fast, fun, and easy.

  • Downtown Dallas is less than one hour by car. There every day parade twice Longhorn Rodeo is only on weekends, but weekday parade watch, souvenir watch, Texas BBQ, eating enjoy. Heard in a lot of people crowded on weekends, but weekdays and like wearing tourists from the United States elementary school students about the trip, in the lonely feeling is no. I saw who we bought many handmade Western boots and Fedora hat, was quite good. Uber is coming soon, so it is recommended for tourist from Dallas.

  • Well, this was so interesting and fun. The longhorn cattle are driven out of their pens and down Exchange Avenue two times each day. The cowboys and cattle are driven past the crowds at 11:30 am & 4 p...  more »
  • On our road trip home, we drove through Fort Worth for the sole purpose of seeing the cattle drive. Our city kids (ages 7 and 9) loved the cattle drive and so did we. Before the drive started, we sat ...  more »

  • The second time was a lot more fun than the first. Our baby (19mos) enjoyed it a whole lot more. A bit pricey but worth it. Some of the fun things to do: Petting zoo Horseback riding Pony ride Maze Running Great food Longhorn bull riding Carriage ride Watch the cattle drive Thanks!
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE. had the most perfect cowboy birthday I could dream of here and it was worth it. So much history and culture. Perfect if u like western culture or even if you don't. SO COOL.
  • A must do when in the area. Plan to see the cattle drive, walk up and down exchange street to get a sense of the old west and a time gone by. Stop in the local shops and hotels to cool off and experience how it was in the old days. Check out the Championship Rodeo and see the history and see where the action takes place. Wish I could have planned to attend a rodeo, seems like it would be an awesome experience.
  • Cool place. Lots of saloons and restaurants. Cattle drive everyday, rain or shine. Lots of photo ops. Interesting shops and plenty of cold beer. Had lots of fun while we were there. The old west at its best.
  • Had a walk through here earlier in the day before going to the rodeo. It has a good range of shops for folk into western wear (or even horse riding, with one store with a great selection of spurs). Felt a bit touristy when we were there during the day, but had a great atmosphere when we came back for the rodeo and the eating places seemed reasonably priced for a touristy area. Definitely needs to be seen if you're in Fort Worth, though if you're into western wear you will find better prices at other outlets further out of the city
