The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District is home to great restaurants, live music, historic attractions and the only twice-daily cattle drive in the world. Every day, at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., modern-day drovers usher massive Texas Longhorns down the street to pay tribute to the men and women who participated in cattle drives centuries ago.
Back then, cowpokes took refuge where they could—unrolling their bedrolls underneath the night sky to sleep somewhere close to the herd. Times have changed. If you’re planning a trip to the Fort Worth Stockyards, chances are you have a few more creature comforts in mind.
