|About these ratings|
If you only have a day in Fort Worth, head straight to the Stockyards. As one TripAdvisor user puts it: "This is really what you expect to see in Texas." This living museum represents Fort Worth in its heyday, featuring daily cattle drives, numerous Wild West shops and plenty of places to eat. Your kids will especially love a twirl through the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze or a ride on the Grapevine Vintage Railroad. Meanwhile, you can spend a few hours in the Wild at the Stockyards Museum. Make time to see some real cowboys in action at the Stockyards Championship Rodeo, held every Friday and Saturday night in the Cowtown Coliseum.
The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District is free to visit every day, but some of its attractions charge entrance fees. Be sure to check with the Stockyards website for details.
