Day One, Monday, Dallas, Hyatt Place Dallas/Grapevine

No visit to Dallas is complete without visiting legendary Southfork Ranch. As the set for the famous TV show Dallas for thirteen years and 356 episodes, Southfork Ranch pays tribute to the show with a variety of sights to see within and outside of the mansion. Tour the Ewing Mansion and re-live exciting moments from the series in the “Dallas Legends” exhibit, featuring an exciting array of memorabilia from the series. See the gun that shot J.R., Lucy’s Wedding Dress, the “Dallas” Family Tree, and Jock’s Lincoln Continental. Tonight we will enjoy our welcome dinner reception with a tour of Southfork Ranch and dine as the Ewing’s did with a Texas style BBQ. (Welcome Dinner)

Day Two, Tuesday, Dallas, Hyatt Place Dallas/Grapevine

We start our day with a visit to the “George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum.” This is the 13th Presidential Library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. Museum exhibits include A Nation Under Attack, Life in the White House, the interactive Decision Points Theater, a full-size replica of the White House oval Office, and a massive 20 foot-tall, 360 degree LED screen showing highdefinition multimedia clips blending art, history and entertainment. After lunch on your own, we will relive history at “The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.” One of Texas’ most visited historic sites, this museum chronicles the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is located in the former Texas School Book Depository where significant evidence of a sniper was found following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Museum presents the social and political landscape of the early 1960s, chronicles President Kennedy’s assassination and its aftermath, and reflects upon his lasting impact on our country and world. Next, it’s off to an old fashion cattle drive in Fort Worth, where the Old West will come to life before your eyes. The Fort Worth Herd is the world’s only twice daily cattle drive. Real Texas cowhands drive a herd of Texas longhorns through the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards on East Exchange Avenue in front of the Livestock Exchange Building and then back to the holding pens behind the Livestock Exchange Building for viewing. (Breakfast)

Day Three, Wednesday, Waco, Hilton Waco

Whether you’re a diehard Chip and Joanna Gaines fan or a first-time Fixer Upper watcher, a trip to Magnolia Market at the Silos in Waco, Texas is a must! There’s a little something for everyone at Magnolia Market at the Silos. Shopping, games, the garden and even a bite to eat. The market itself is staged and set up with one goal in mind: to inspire you to own the space you’re in! If you want to see something more, a block away is the Dr. Pepper Museum which details the history of the soft drink industry, with rare memorabilia, amazing demos, a soda shop, gift shop, and more. Still looking for more, then a visit to The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is a must. Located on the banks of the Brazos River, this museum is proudly sponsored by the City of Waco and Sanctioned by the State of Texas. The museum preserves the history and inspires appreciation of the Texas Rangers, a legendary symbol of Texas and the American West. Meet the active-duty and retired members of our nation’s best. In the afternoon, we will take a historical Waco City tour. We will have a chance to see many of the homes, shops (like woodworker Clint Harp of Clint Harp Designs and metal craftsman Jimmy Don Holmes of JDH Iron Designs), and historical landmarks featured on Fixer Upper. Sometimes you even get to go inside one of the homes. You never know what will happen on a Brazos Tour or where they might stop! Dinner tonight will be at the famed Texas “Ninfa’s Mexican Restaurant”. (Breakfast & Dinner)

Day Four, Thursday, San Antonio, Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk

Upon arriving to San Antonio we will visit “Historic Market Square” where we will enjoy the sights and flavors of old Mexico. Market Square is a three-block outdoor plaza lined with shops, and restaurants. Next it’s world famous “SAS” factory shoe outlet where we might be able to watch shoes being made! Terry Armstrong and Lew Hayden met in Pittsfield, Maine, but their passion for making quality footwear led them to San Antonio. They started their first factory in 1976, starting small and built one shoe at a time with the highest attention to detail. Today, SAS’s line features everything from walking and athletic shoes to pumps, flats, sandals and boots. The men’s line has expanded to include walking, and athletic wear to dress shoes. Dinner tonight will be at Liberty Tavern, “a former convent”, located in the King William Historic District. (Breakfast & Dinner)

Day Five, Friday, San Antonio, Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk

Today’s highlights includes tours of local Missions, the Alamo and the Riverwalk on our own River boat. San Antonio is a city with a rich colonial heritage. San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is a part of the UNESCO World heritage Site preserving four of the five Spanish frontier missions in San Antonio, Texas, USA. These outposts were established by Catholic religious orders to spread Christianity among the local natives. The Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum, marks an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. Following the San Antonio River, the miles-long River Walk is a landmark pedestrian promenade lined with cares and shops. (Breakfast)

Day Six, Saturday, San Antonio, Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk

This morning we head out to Fredericksburg, known as the “Jewell of the Texas Hill Country” and learn why Southern Living Magazine named it “The Best Small Town in Texas”. This small city has a unique German flavor with its quaint bakeries, Main Street boutiques and generations-old orchards. The surrounding Texas Hill Country is home to lush vineyards, making up one of the country’s largest vinicultural areas. Here we will tour the National Museum of the Pacific War. Dedicated to all those who served in the Pacific War. See displays of some of the most notable aspects and events of WWII in the Pacific. After lunch on your own, we will visit the Wild Seed Farm & Winery. This is the nation’s largest working wildflower farm. It has more than 1,000 cultivated acres in Texas and over 200 acres of wildflower fields at its Texas Hill country headquarters. Here, we will also have a chance to enjoy some wine tasting! A short distance from downtown San Antonio, is one of the first commercial olive orchards in Texas, Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard. When Sandy bought the property in 1998, it was unimproved pasture land graced by ancient oaks. She fell in love with the huge oak trees and felt that because they thrive in the sandy soil of the farm, this would be a perfect place to start an orchard. Just as the oaks do, the olive trees she planted flourish. As a steward of the land, she grows the olive trees and other crops, sustainably, using only organic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Revered throughout history by many cultures for its bounty, the olive tree bears olives to eat, from which a juice called olive oil is extracted. The leaves are brewed into a beneficial tea. The wood is used to make beautiful objects or as a source of clean fuel for cooking. Her Initial goal was to produce quality extra virgin olive oil, but over time another goal arose to show the range of value-added culinary and skin-care products that can be made from the oil and the leaves. (Breakfast, Farewell Dinner)
