Student Travel

The City of Cowboys and Culture combines history, education and excitement for student and youth groups of all ages. Fort Worth once was a rough-and-tumble frontier town, is now the 15th-largest city in the United States. Today, the image of the cowboy is still alive and well in Fort Worth. Stroll through any of Fort Worth’s entertainment districts on any given day and you’re bound to see locals and visitors alike adorned in cowboy hats and boots.

Plan for your group to spend a few days in Fort Worth and explore all that Fort Worth has to offer. Experience Fort Worth’s Western heritage in the historic Stockyards. Visit world-renowned museums in the Cultural District. Perform in the Plaza or attend a performance at Bass Performance Hall in Sundance Square. Discover over 7,000 animals at a Top 5 Zoo in the nation.

Student groups in Fort Worth can play cowboy for a day; admire great works of art; indulge in Tex-Mex and Texas BBQ; learn to line dance at a real honky-tonk; cheer on their favorite sports team or visit the new rides at nearby Six Flags over Texas.
