Fort Worth and Austin

Texas is cowboy country and what better way to saddle up and experience this than with a Fort Worth and Dallas twin centre holiday. Enjoy the first four nights in Fort Worth, with a rich history it became an important trading post for cowboys. Today it is a modern metropolis, with gleaming skyscrapers and modern technologies yet it still promotes its history well. Take a visit to the Fort Worth Stockyards home to famous rodeos, the National Cowgirl Museum and see the Fort Worth Herd - the world's only cattle drive that goes twice a day. Families can enjoy a host of activities including the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze, the Stockyards Petting Zoo or younger explorers will love taking a ride on the Grapevine Heritage Railroad. Compliment your stay in Fort Worth by visiting the city of Austin for a further four nights. Packed with things to do you may want to extend your stay further.
