“Groups really enjoy the authentic Texas experience and friendly nature of our city,” says Estela Martinez-Stuart, director of tourism at Visit Fort Worth. “Without fail, every time I reconnect with a tour operator who has visited, they say ‘I love Fort Worth.’”
Why do groups love Fort Worth? Martinez-Stuart says there are four main reasons.
- They can experience a cattle drive in the Stockyards National Historic District, followed by a meet-and-greet with the herd drovers who lead the drive.
- Groups can enjoy a free tour of the Money Factory, one of two U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing Facilities, and see how money is made. Afterward, they can visit Tanger Outlets or the Texas Motor Speedway.
- Visitors can tour the heart of Fort Worth’s downtown and Sundance Square on themed walking tours. Groups may take advantage of Fort Worth’s WorthSavings card, which offers discounts at various restaurants and shops.
- They can also arrange a tour and tasting at Fort Worth’s newest destination, Whiskey Ranch, the largest whiskey distillery west of the Mississippi River.
