I'm setting aside WEDNESDAY (July 23rd) on the schedule as our official site-seeing day. Of course, I'm not going to tie you to a hitchin' post
if your family decides to go somewhere on another day, but Wednesday is a great day to see the sites of NW Texas.
While there are many places of interest with information in your welcome packet, I'm only going to do a signup for the Ft. Worth Stockyards.
Drivers Needed: if you have a vehicle and can take a few passengers with you - please sign up as I did below.
Passengers: due to fuel costs these days, it would be appropriate to pool together and give the driver a hand with fuel.
<span class="ev_code_RED">FT WORTH STOCKYARDS</span> 49 miles
The Stockyards Station exemplifies Texas by providing an exciting blend of old and new with Historic Walking Tours that visit the Texas Trail of Fame, The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and more, over 25 unique shops including a winery, art gallery and great restaurants. The Stockyards is also the home of Billy Bob's..the largest dancehall (and other venues) under one gi-normous roof!
