“shopping and twice-daily cattle drives!”
Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. The Fort Worth Stockyards is a historic district that is located in Fort Worth, Texas, north of the central business district. The 98-acre (40 ha) district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District in 1976. They are a former livestock market which operated under various owners from 1866. The Fort Worth Herd is the world's only twice daily cattle drive, held every day at 11:30 AM & 4:00 PM in the Fort Worth Stockyards.
Great old buildings with bars and restaurants. You can even get beer to go and some of the establishments. Love this historic feeling here.
Traveled across country with y 9 year old and myself. Some lady at some diner told us to make a stop at the 'running of the bulls' They didnt really run much, but so much fun to see! Had a great time! Spent the day wandering around. Really fun place!! We went in the middle of summer and thank goodness the heat doesnt bother us. Bring water!
