Fort Worth Herd

Giddyup! Watch real cowboys in action as they drive the Fort Worth Herd daily. In the morning, the cattle drive begins at the far east end of Exchange Avenue. Traveling west past the Stockyards Visitor’s Center and Livestock Exchange Building, the cattle drive ends at Cowtown Coliseum. In the afternoon, the herd is driven in the opposite direction, returning to the pens behind the Livestock Exchange Building. Depending on the disposition of the cattle, the trail boss has the right to cancel any drive; so have an alternate activity plan, just in case.

Billy Bob’s Texas

Self-proclaimed as the “largest honky tonk in the world,” Billy Bob’s Texas encompasses over six thousand square feet of kick-up-your-boots kind of entertainment. Mostly a venue for country artists and bands at night, during the day Billy Bob’s is a tourist stop for families. Take a gander at the handprint wall of fame, climb atop the photo bull for a picture souvenir, play in the arcades, or peruse the gift shop for some tacky Texas remembrances of your travels.
