Most of us have dreamed, at some point in our lives, of being a cowboy or cowgirl (even if it was when we were six). But if you’ve never fulfilled the fantasy of rounding up a herd, roping a wayward calf, or riding a bucking stallion, the Fort Worth Stockyards offer redemption of sorts. Here, you can get front-row seats to rodeo competitions every Friday and Saturday night and watch champion barrel-racers, bull-riders, and team ropers show off their skills in the 3,418-seat Cowtown Coliseum. You can also check out a twice-daily Longhorn cattle drive, visit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, and join a guided horseback trail ride along the banks of the Trinity River.
