Itinerary

We board our motorcoach this morning and head south with stops for comfort and lunch on our own along the way. Today’s journey comes to an end in Wichita, KS, where we will check into our overnight accommodations and enjoy a welcome dinner together.

(Dinner included)

After breakfast at the hotel, we will head to Pawhuska, OK, to visit The Mercantile. Owned by Ree Drummond, known across the country as the Pioneer Woman, The Mercantile is a general store, deli, and bakery all wrapped into one! After lunch and time to explore this homage to small-town America, we will depart for Oklahoma City, OK. Upon arrival at our hotel in the Bricktown area, the remainder of the evening is at your leisure. This former warehouse district is rich with history, full of beauty, and alive with constant activity. Dine at one of the area’s many restaurants, enjoy a nightcap, and browse the unique selection of shops.

(Breakfast and lunch included)

Following breakfast, we will continue our drive south to Dallas, TX, to have lunch on our own and visit the George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum. The library examines the life and career of our nation’s forty-third president and the principles he followed when making critical decisions. The fascinating exhibits include a full-size replica of the Oval Office and the original White House Situation Room, plus the poignant “Nation Under Attack” exhibit that displays the letters President Bush received in the days after the September 11th attacks, the bullhorn he used to address the crowd at Ground Zero, and steel from the World Trade Center. We will then continue on to Southfork Ranch, the place the Ewings called home for thirteen years on the TV series Dallas. Our group will learn about the history of the ranch, explore the Ewing Mansion and show memorabilia, and hear interesting stories from the set. After a delicious Southfork dinner on the ranch, we’ll head back into the city to check into our hotel.

(Breakfast and dinner included)

We will depart after breakfast for the remainder of our journey to Waco, TX. Upon arrival in Waco, we will meet our step-on guide and begin a driving tour of some homes and landmarks from the Fixer Upper world, including the suspension bridge and the ALICO building in downtown Waco, various shops, and new projects the Gaineses are working on. Along the way, stops will be made at the JDH Iron Designs retail trailer and Harp Design Co. to do some shopping. The afternoon is yours to explore Waco your way! A free trolley will be available for those looking to explore downtown Waco. It’s a unique cultural district brimming with fun finds, from antiques and home decor to artisanal crafts and high-end boutiques. Plus, it is the perfect place to enjoy lunch on your own with its wide array of delicious dining options from around the globe. Consider making the short walk to the famous Magnolia Market, the home goods shop owned by Chip and Joanna Gaines. One can find a wide range of decor pieces in Joanna’s signature style, including baskets, signage, knick knacks, and furniture. Other unique places include The Findery, Common Grounds, Heritage Creamery, Laverty’s Antiques and Furnishings, and Spice Village. Our day will come to an end with dinner together at one of Waco’s many fun restaurants.

(Breakfast and dinner included)

Still need time to explore? Use the morning on your own to visit new shops or make a return visit to some of your favorites! We’ll then say goodbye to Waco as we depart for our hotel in Fort Worth. The evening is yours to have dinner and explore the Stockyards National Historic District.

(Breakfast included)

Today will be an opportunity to relax and enjoy the scenery on our travels north. We’ll drive as far as Topeka, KS, making stops for comfort and lunch on our own along the way. After checking into our hotel, time will be available to freshen up before we gather for dinner as a group.

(Breakfast and dinner included)

After breakfast at the hotel, we will depart on the rest of our journey home with periodic stops along the way.
