Option 1: All-Day Visit to Fort Worth Stockyards & Sundance Square
Duration: 8 Hours
Includes: Historic Stockyards & Museum walking tour, Meet & Greet with Herd Drovers, Admission to Billy Bob’s Honky Tonk, Admission to the Rodeo, and transportation. (Meals not included.)
Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. Step aside for the longhorn cattle drive down Exchange Avenue and avoid the crossfire in the gun fight re-enactments. Then, step inside Cowtown Coliseum for competition rodeo action.
Option 2: Half-Day Visit to the Sixth Floor Museum & Dealey Plaza
Duration: 4 Hours
Includes: Admission to the Museum, Dealey Plaza walking tour, lunch, and transportation
On November 22, 1963, in a space of 11 seconds, the world changed. Shots fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository took the life of President John F. Kennedy. The Museum, located within the former Depository building, chronicles the assassination and legacy of the fallen President.
After touring the museum, visit the site of the presidential motorcade in Dealey Plaza. This historic area has been an important gathering space for Dallas residents since the 1840s. With the museum’s Dealey Plaza Interactive Guide on your phone, navigate the site of the Kennedy assassination and explore the rich history of the area. The guide includes an interactive map and narrated walking tour.
Afterward, enjoy lunch featuring classic Southern comfort food or Texas barbecue in Dallas’ famed West End.
