What: Stockyards National Historic District
During the 1800s, Fort Worth was the last major stop for drovers running cattle up the Chilsholm trail to the railheads. Beyond Fort Worth there was the crossing of the Red River into Indian Territory. Four million head of cattle were moved through Fort Worth between 1866 and 1890. Fort Worth was home to cowboys, cattlemen, and outlaws. Today the Stockyards National Historic District is one of the most popular attractions in Texas. The area features the Stockyards Championship Rodeo, the Stockyards Museum, The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, eateries such as the Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, saloons, and shops such as Maverick Fine Western Wear selling authentic western boots, hats, and apparel. There is even the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze, the Stockyards petting zoo, and a ride on the Grapevine Heritage Railroad for the kids. You can visit the Stockyards day or night to get a taste of the true American West. Plan your visit around The Fort Worth Herd, a real, live cattle drive, scheduled twice daily at 11:30 a.m. and again at 4 p.m.
