The Fort Worth Stockyards with the Fort Worth Herd

The Fort Worth Stockyards are the location of Fort Worth's one and only claim to tourist fame.

And Where the West Begins.

The Fort Worth Stockyards are our favorite place to people watch on a Hot summer day in Texas.

Year round the Fort Worth Stockyards attract visitors from all over the world, looking to experience some of the Old American West.

Twice a day, weather permitting, there is a Cattle Drive of the Fort Worth Herd of Longhorns down Exchange Avenue through the heart of the Stockyards. The Herd of Longhorns includes Cowboys and a Cowgirl, or two, as herd drivers.

The Fort Worth Stockyards has a lot of good places to eat. One of our favorites is having All You Can Eat Ribs at Riscky's BBQ, while enjoying the view from the weather protected patio.

H3 Ranch is another good place  to get smoky meats. Connected to H3 Ranch is Booger Red's Saloon, where you can sit on a saddle seat have yourself a mug of Buffalo Butt Beer. Above that is Gar the Texan and one of his ex-wives enjoying a Buffalo Butt Beer in Booger Red's.

Across the street from Booger Red's you'll find Tim Love's Love Shack with another weather protected outdoor eating and music listening area.

Go to our Eyes on Texas webpage  about the Fort Worth Stockyards where you will find a lot of Stockyards information and photos.

For a closer look at the Fort Worth Herd go to our Fort Worth Herd in the Stockyards webpage.
