Description

You can easily take advantage of learning Fort Worth's history, its depth of character and its uniqueness during this 4-hour guided, small-group tour. After its birth in the 1840s, and especially between 1866 and 1890, drovers ran millions of cattle through Fort Worth on to the Red River, winding their way north to the rail heads in Abilene, Kansas via the Chisholm Trail. Please contact local supplier to confirm.  Lunch is not included in this tour.

You and your small group will depart from Platinum Park to begin your 4-hour tour with a historian as your guide. 

Reaching back into the past, when cowboys would stop at Fort Worth’s “Hell’s Half Acre” to rest and relax, glimpse this experience when you visit the Cattle Drive Visitor’s Center, which will lead to:

  • The Stockyard Station with many shops, restaurants, horseback riding, a vintage steam engine and much more
  • The Horse and Mule Barn/Livery turned into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame
  • The Cowtown Coliseum – built in 1908 and housing the first indoor rodeo 10 years later
  • The Live Stock Exchange, the heart of the old livestock business

This 125-acre venue is one of the most popular stops in Fort Worth and is home to the world’s only cattle drive. You may not drive cattle, but you can still have a great time during this historic walking experience.

At the end of the tour, your driver will drop you off at the original meeting point
