      So many cattle made their way through Fort Worth on the Chisholm Trail in the late 19th century that the place became known as Cowtown. The stockyards that were built to house these huge numbers are now a historic attraction offering everything from museums and walking tours to a wide range of shops and restaurants. Fridays and Saturdays are Stockyards Championship Rodeo nights at the Cowtown Coliseum.

      If you go:
      Make sure you're there for the twice daily cattle drives: 11.30 am and 4.00 pm.
