Other CITIES, Dallas: 20 reviews and 44 photos

Fort Worth is the twin city of Dallas. Fort Worth Stockyards are in the National Historical District and well worth a visit. The livestock industry began to develop here in the 1880s and there were sheep, cattle, hog pens and horse and mule barns. The original barns were burned in 1911 and were replaced with concrete and steel buildings.

You can really feel the old west recaptured all along Exchange Avenue. In 1976 the area was renovated with western-style stores and restaurants and is now one of the most famous and fun historical sites in Texas. There are many activities within this area of 'cowtown'. Fabulous bars/restaurants and great for Texan style souveniers.
