Fort Worth is proud of its cowboy and culture mix, and the Stockyards National Historic District is where entertainment, shopping and dining have plenty of Western flair.
Learn more about the city’s cow-handling history at the Stockyards Museum, housed in the old 1902 Livestock Exchange. Follow the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze of wooden pathways, replicating the cattle pens of the old west. There are antique wagons on show at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, along with rodeo heroes and memorabilia.
Twice a day at 11:30am and 4pm a fun round-up of Texas longhorn cattle takes to the historic district’s streets, and Stockyards Station hosts walking tours of the precinct.
There are saloons and dance halls aplenty, Wild West shows, and of course a stack of steakhouses and BBQ rib joints.
The Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District is parallel to Main Street, north of downtown Fort Worth. Molly the Trolley runs from downtown to the Stockyards.
