76106's insider take:

It began as a stop on the Chisholm Trail and boomed as a raucous meatpacking district at the turn of the 19th century. Now filled with Western-wear shops, Western-style saloons, and barbecue joints and steak houses, it's the reason they still call Fort Worth "Cowtown." Visit the Cowtown Coliseum, where they've been holding rodeos since 1918, and the legendary White Elephant Saloon, with its cowboy-hat-festooned ceiling and Gunsmoke-style stand-up bar. Family-friendly attractions include a twice-daily mini-trail drive, complete with authentically cantankerous longhorns, and the Tarantula Train, an 1896 steam engine that takes visitors on sightseeing junkets along the route of the old Chisholm Trail.
