Your charter bus is ready to take your group to Fort Worth, Texas. Fort Worth is part of the Texas Chisholm Trail and played a big part in one of the most colorful chapters of the American West. The rich Texas heritage and cowboy lifestyle can still be experienced along this historic Trail's Texas segment.
Known as the city "Where the West Begins", Fort Worth embraces its cowboy heritage while moving forward with a revitalized downtown and major cultural attractions. Today, Fort Worth offers so many things to see and do, you and your charter bus group could plan an entire vacation around them. Including special events all year long.
With a friendly population of half a million people, Fort Worth is consistently ranked among the top places in the nation to work, live, and do business by national magazines like Money, Fortune, and Newsweek. The city is home to major corporations like Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, Bell Helicopter Textron, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, Pier 1 Imports, and RadioShack.
A great first destination on your charter bus excursion is a tour of Fort Worth's three distinct entertainment districts. Start you and your charter bus group at the Stockyards National Historic District where you will experience daily longhorn cattle drives, an authentic cattle auction, a live rodeo, or watch a leather craftsman tool a handmade saddle or pair of boots. Drop by the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and see the Sterquell Wagon Collection.
Just a few miles from the Stockyards, discover the Fort Worth Cultural District where you and the folks on your charter bus, will visit five of the most acclaimed museums in the Southwest: Kimbell Art Museum, Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. As you head from the Cultural District to Sundance Square in historic Downtown Fort Worth, you will make a stop at the Cattle Raisers Museum before taking in the great cafés, restaurants, theaters and shopping in this beautiful revitalized area.
This area, called "Hell's Half Acre" in the days of the great cattle drives, is now a place where your charter bus group can polish their best boots and head to the opera, a Broadway musical or a Willie Nelson concert.
For a real trip back in time, take your charter bus group to Log Cabin Village. Located in a heavily wooded section of Trinity Park, this 19th-century grouping of log cabins is a real treat.
The seven fully restored cabins originated in the 1850s. Volunteers who run the operation will give your charter bus gang demonstrations of everyday activities from those days gone by including corn grinding, candle dipping, spinning and weaving.
If your charter bus group is hungry, take a stop by the 8.0 Restaurant for some great American fare. Since you're in cattle country, steak may be on your charter bus group's mind, you can't go wrong with an excursion to Angelo's Steak House where the best steaks in Fort Worth reside. There is also a good selection of ethnic fare and all of it reasonably priced and quite good.
