Historic Treasure

Our Take

If you’re looking for that essential Western experience in Texas, you’ll find it at the Fort Worth Stockyards. It has a rich history, but today it’s mostly fun kitsch. You’ll find free shows here, including a cattle herd where cows are run down the street, and some paid experiences. Kids will enjoy the horse-powered carousel and the petting zoo. This is also a great spot for souvenir shopping.

“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.

We love stopping here for a lunch and to watch the daily cattle drive when we time it right. Its a great place to wander around and stretch legs for an hour or so before hopping back in the car. We loved the BBQ!
