We had 100 people for a dinner event. Everyone had a blast. There was horseshoes, bags, armadillo races, mechanical bull, fires and s’mores, open bar, great bbq and a really nice staff. I would highly recommend this place for large groups.

Take the time to watch the longhorn cattle drive. It's a brief replay of history, but made more interesting by the authentic cowboys and cowgirls on horseback. Quaint shops now sit where the stockyards used to hold cattle. Cobbled brick sidewalks between the shops. We...More

Going to see the area but also the longhorn "cattle drive" is definitely worth while. They drive the cattle twice a day for a few blocks and is fun and informative. There are a ton of shops with boots, hats and touristy stuff.

Saw the cattle drive. Short and sweet with some helpful info from the guy with the megaphone. Lots of shops and restaurants if you’re looking for them. A neat part of American history.

There is free public parking by the Stockyards Station. There are also several paid parking lots mixed thru out the Stockyards and then of course, if you get there early enough, there's free parking on the street.

The cattle drives are every day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., weather permitting. The best place to watch is in front of the Visitor's Center at 130 E. Exchange Ave.
