If yo’ve never heard of Fort Worth Stockyards then you can be forgiven since I hadn’t pre trip either! Around 45 minutes from downtown Dallas, it has been preserved relatively well (or at least ‘maintained’ for tourists sake) since the railroads arrival in 1876 when it was a hub for livestock, selling in excess of a million per year!
We went there because we wanted a real taste of the Wild West. Which when we arrived what felt like being on a set of Westworld. Everywhere we looked there were guys in full cowboy attire on horses, some great moustaches and even with lasso’s and then of course the famous Texan Longhorns.
