Along the narrow streets of Stockyards Station you'll find storefronts from the late 1800s, which were renovated for tourism in the 1970s. Stores are full of western memorabilia including paintings, leather goods, books, glassware and hundreds of other treasures. Wild west performances are staged frequently at the Cowtown Coliseum , while Billy Bob's Texas offers other entertainment options. At mealtime, Riscky's and other restaurants offer steak, catfish and other local fare. A children's amusement park features a lovely old carousel and several other rides. Through the middle of it all runs the Tarantula Train , which shuttles passengers on a nostalgic trip to and from Grapevine.
the atmosphere is great fun, real old west stuff, alot of tourist shops, all full of the same over priced stuff. the candy store had a wonderful selection of candies i hadnt seen in years but the prices were outrageous. my only price kudos was to Risckys restaurants, they had wonderful foods for reasonable prices. Things to see...the cattle drive, the grapevine train, the maze, the petting zoo, old time gunfight, live local country bands.
It is a great place to take kids. We can't wait to go back!! My husband and I went by ourselves but we are currently planning a trip back with our 2 children. We had spent an entire day there because we were short on time but would have stayed even longer, and plan to when the kids are with us. There is just too much to do and see in one day!!
It took me 1 1/2 hours to get the info. my family and I needed to ride this train. I asked a question, and everyone kept referring me to a different number (some of which didn't work). I think they need to fill each and every employee in on all information needed to travel. Not very satisfied with the service, however the train was fun.
The stockyards are by far the highlight of Fort Worth. They are just wonderful and are a God sent for family vacations, especially if you have young children...they have a HUGE candy store. I highly recommend that you visit Fort Worth!
