Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • although a lot of people visit here, for the life of me i can't understand why. average bars, average food, average shops, higher than average prices, $10 to park.  more »
  • We visited the Stockyards over two days using the Adventure Passport which included a fun Fort Worth bandana, historical Spirit of the West video, admission to two museums, meet & greet with Fort Wort...  more »
  • Fun can be relaxing! A feel good day to get away from it all. There is a train that comes straight through the shops which takes you to Grapevine, if you want to plan a trip that way.  more »

  • Great location and easy access to restaurants and area attractions. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. Nice weekend stay and would definitely go back.
  • Awesome spacious rooms with everything you'd need for a goodnight stay. Great service at all times & had an awesome breakfast in the morning.
  • The service was well timed and there is plenty to eat. The beds are also amazing
  • The service was exceptional and my room was perfect. The breakfast was delicious as well!
  • I don't usually stay with this brand, but it was very nice. On the grounds of the stockyards, so you don't have to drive anywhere if you're touring. Obviously a very quiet hotel. Tornado sirens went off overnight. Didn't even hear the storm and I'm a light sleeper. This speaks volumes!
