Saturday Tourist – FTW Stockyards and Cattle Drive
February 1 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pmFree
Number 8 in the Saturday Tourist series and the second of 2020 is headed downtown to the Fort Worth Stockyards.
We will visit the Stockyards Museum and then watch as the Old West comes to life before our eyes during the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive presented by the Fort Worth Herd. Real Texas cowhands drive a herd of Texas longhorns down East Exchange Avenue every day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Every detail of the cattle drive—from the saddles and chaps to the boots and hats – is authentic and historically true.
Afterward we’ll catch some lunch at one of the western themed restaurants in the Stockyards area…. Mojitos Bar and Grill, Dos Molinos Mexican, or maybe even BBQ at Risky’s or Coopers.
Stockyards parking is $7 and the Stockyards Museum is $2.
A “Weather Permitting” ride, we’ll leave right after the Saturday Grapevine breakfast.
Bad weather date: Feb.15th, 2020
