During your Fort Worth bus tour you will see some of Texas’ most renowned landmarks with a knowledgeable and friendly step-on-guide. Also included in your trip to Fort Worth is a cattle drive in the Fort Worth Stockyards.
Fort Worth Stockyards
Start your guided tour in Fort Worth Stockyards. Listed on the National Register as a historical district since 1976, the Fort Worth Stockyards are the history book of the livestock industry in Texas represented by each original brick and mortar, the wooden corrals, the men and the music of the Stockyards. Here you will meet your tour guide who will take you on a city tour of Fort Worth.
Fort Worth Water Gardens
Situated in Downtown Fort Worth, adjacent to the Fort Worth Convention Center is the Fort Worth Water Gardens. A beautiful and refreshing oasis amid the busy city, passersby can delight in three pools featured throughout the park: the aerating, the quiet pool and the active pool.
In the heart of Downtown Fort Worth is Sundance Square, a 35-block, privately owned, commercial residential, entertainment and retail district. Both locals and tourists are attracted to the mixture of shops, restaurants, art galleries and performing arts venues that keep the streets alive day and night.
The Cultural District
Minutes from Downtown Fort Worth is the city’s Cultural District. Bordered by a tree lined boulevard paved with bricks and surrounded by manicured grounds, the Cultural District is home to charming shops and restaurants, Old World and New World art masterpieces, science and cultural exhibits, performing arts theaters and the Will Rogers Memorial Center.
Billy Bob’s of Texas
Your time in Fort Worth would not be complete without a visit to Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky-tonk. Boasting three acres of fun, Billy Bob’s is home to an indoor rodeo arena, a Texas-size dance floor, dozens of bar stations, arcade games, a Wall of Fame with celebrity hand prints and even has a general store within.
Back at Fort Worth Stockyards; delight in the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling and the rhythm of hoof beats during a cattle drive. The romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives return to Fort Worth with the Herd-Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands who offer an unforgettable glimpse into the past.
The Fort Worth Herd of 15 Texas Longhorns was acquired by the city in honor of Fort Worth’s sesquicentennial celebration, each steer representing one decade from Fort Worth’s colorful past. On June 12, 1999, 15,000 spectators gathered to see the first cattle drive in Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District, and it has been a prominent part of the Stockyards ever since. Watch in awe as drovers drive their longhorns along East Exchange Avenue, harking back to a time when the great herds rumbled through the dusty streets of Fort Worth on their way to market.
