There is lots to do and see. At Stockyard Station there is a maze for the kids and adults in addition to restaurants and shops. The Livestock Exchange is a step back in time that houses a museum inside its doors. We enjoyed watching the longhorns walk down the street. We also visited the Texas Cowboy museum which not only has information about some of Texas most notable cowboys, but has a very nice collection of vintage wagons. We walked down the street to visit some antique shops and western stores, and just see that area of the town. During the time we were there, on the grounds of the Livestock Exchange there was a petting zoo and a pony ride. There was also a man with a longhorn that the kids can sit on while mom or dad takes a picture. This is a very relaxing place with enough for the kids and parents to keep interested while not shelling out lots of money. All in all we enjoyed the stockyards and will go back.

You can visit this area on the north side. It has been remodeled with many historical sights and buildings which are of Western design.
There are ice cream shops, Western stores, souvenir shops and restaurants.
Almost like a trip back to frontier times...a touch of the old West!
The Stockyards Hotel is available for lodging and is a reminder of frontier times with a Western theme.
Also, the White Elephant Saloon provides a Western-style atmosphere for dancing and live entertainment and was used often for the filming of Walker, Texas Ranger TV series.
On the ceiling and walls there are Western hats from many celebrities such as Chuck Norris, George Strait and Willie Nelson. According to the bartender, anyone can have their hat placed there also.
There is train station just a short walk east with more restaurants and shops.
All this is located just a short drive from the downtown courthouse.
