Texas – from Mary Kay to LBJ to JR Ewing

This Texas vacation has something for everyone!  History buffs will love touring the Presidential Libraries of LBJ, GHW and GW Bush, visiting the site of JFK’s assassination and learning about Teddy Roosevelt and the Menger Hotel. Tour the Alamo and enjoy several city tours and learn about Texans like Mary Kay and Neiman Marcus.

From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, you get to explore the Stockyards retelling the true history of Texas’ famous livestock industry. And for sports fans, a visit to the audacious and totally Texas Cowboy Stadium.

Included in this bigger than life “Texas style” Interlude is a visit to Southfork Ranch. JR and Sue Ellen et al provided soapy, backstabbing TV drama from 1978 to 1991 and you get to visit where it all took place.

With many meals included, this first class escorted vacation is as diverse as Texas itself. You will amazed at all it has to offer.
