Description

Fort Worth Stockyards is a district in Fort Worth that dates back to the 1800s. A pit-stop for drovers, and then a railroad stop, the area has seen cow herds for a long time. At one point it was even commonly referred to as Cowtown. The district has a number of rodeos that are quite popular and a must see, if you're a closet cowboy. With all that livestock, it's only natural that you have some of the best steakhouses in the country right here. If you thought livestock is your only entertainment here, you're quite wrong. The district has a few motor-sport events as well as dance-halls. Of course you'll probably be doing the two-step here rather than the electric slide. If you're a tourist passing by, there are quite a few options for lodging, so book in advance so you're saved a room. There are also regular town events that take place, like the Kellie Pickler concert, or the Stockyards Championship Rodeo which is an annual event. Do contact or check the website for details.
