Day 1   

When my brothers and I were growing up in Fort Worth, our parents took us to the city’s world-renowned museums and beloved annual stock show but somehow never to the district that put the “cow” in Cowtown: the legendary Stockyards. The touristy, 98-acre hub of historic landmarks and cattle pens is roughly bookended by Billy Bob’s Texas, (2520 Rodeo Plaza, 817-624-7117)
