Coming off of that bluff.... where the courthouse sits (yesterday's blog), you seem to be galloping back in time. The stockyards is an area in north Ft. Worth where cattle drives ended, and livestock auctions began. Today the area consists mainly of venues that capitalize on that cowtown image.
You may feel it is a bit touristy....but hey you are in TEXAS and this area, with all of it's cowboy fun, exemplifies the Texas some folks have some to see.
Be sure and stop in the Stockyard Hotel.It has a lobby that is straight out of an earlier century, great western art and a fun bar (.See the hotel here )
Yep, that's a bar stool. In the Stockyard Hotel bar. You really can straddle a saddle, at the bar, and feel like a native.As we say in TEXAS "Y'all Come Back Now"......to be continued.
Oh! ..and Happy Halloween!
