By Kim Croisant, Travel Awaits

The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District is known for its Western heritage and rich history. Where else can you see a herd of Texas longhorns and real cowboys strolling down the brick walkways like they did in the Old West? Nowhere but Fort Worth. It’s no surprise that this city is known as Cowtown, Texas.

The Fort Worth Stockyards in Texas preserves the rich Western heritage of the whole region. Established in the 19th century as a hub for cattle drives, it now stands as a historic district where you can experience cowboy culture, watch cattle drives, visit rodeos, and explore Western-themed shops and restaurants.
