Fort Worth

The Stock Yards is your first real taste of the Texas cowboy culture on this trip. The Texas Stockyards was the last major stopping point for supplies for cowboys driving cattle north on the famous Chisholm Trail in the 1800s. There are Cattle Drives down the main drag several times a day. There is a rodeo museum and a maze and lots of shops for cowboy stuff. Dont miss Riskies Barbeque! The steak, ribs and shrimp platter was one of the best meals I have ever had.
