Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, Fort Worth Reviews - Write a Review
This place was pretty cool. There is plenty to see and a bunch of shops to poke around in. Some of the store employees weren't all that helpful. I asked a few people to break a $5 bill so my daughter could ride one of the little kid rides outside of their shop (a tiny merry-go-round) and both refused to help. Otherwise, it was a cool place for tourists to walk through. They even had pony rides outside which was fun.
Take a tour to learn the history of the area. Very Interesting. Pay special attention to the stars on the sidewalk. The travel drive was fun to watch. I only wished it was longer, but you get a good sense of what it was like. You have a lot of opportunities to take pictures with cowboys. It is a must see if you are in the area.
Definitely a place to visit especially with the family. Got to make sure yo go when they're herding the cattle too as that's pretty amazing to look with their cowboy gear and everything. Didn't try the food as I was warned it's average but the prices are for tourist. Did walk in to the shops and there was cool Texas memorabilia and leather good but boy were they expensive. I would look else where as it is a tourist trap.
Don't go to early nothing will be open. The areas cute but only plan for a few hours not a full day. We planned a full day and then we ended up looking for something else to do by 12. Also don't go looking for breakfast there is only one place we found in the area and breakfast was mediocre.
This was my first true Texas experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend anyone in the area to go and check it out if they haven't. There are a bunch of shops and restaurants to check out and make sure to be around for the walking of the bulls!
