THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE IT IN THE SPRING OF 2020.
Join FROG where “the stars at night are big and bright,” and where the wild west and space exploration exist side by side. They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and the fun and adventure of our FROG Texas Two-Step will be no exception.
We’ll start in the picturesque and historic town of Grapevine, between Dallas and Fort Worth, where The Vineyards RV Park will be our home for four nights. Activities will kick off with a welcome and orientation dinner.
The next day we'll enjoy a bus tour of Dallas, where we’ll explore Dealey Plaza, site of the JFK assassination, and the Texas School Book Depository. We'll visit some of the public art of the city, including fountains, wild horses, and a massive life-size sculpture of a cattle drive, and enjoy some of the public and private architecture of the city. Following lunch, we'll stop by AT&T Stadium for a tour before returning to the campground.
On Friday we'll step back in time with a tour of Fort Worth We'll visit the historic Fort Worth Stockyards to witness an authentic cattle drive in the streets. Visit world-famous Billy Bob's of Texas, the world's largest honky-tonk, for some line dancing or bull riding. We'll also visit modern Fort Worth, and see the Kennedy Memorial and the hotel where he spent the last night of his life.
We'll kick off Saturday with a light continental breakfast and enjoy some unscheduled time. That evening we'll gather at the Texas Star Dinner Theater in Grapevine. Between courses of a delicious dinner, we'll be regaled by the kooky troupe of performers as we're "Bushwhacked at Bronco Bob's" and try to solve the "whodunnit" murder mystery.
Next, we’ll take a step over to Houston. Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo XI moon landing, we’ll visit the Johnson Space Center. We’ll also get an overview of downtown Houston and its eclectic culture and architecture.
On a separate tour we'll visit historic Galveston Island, site of the most devastating storm in American history. We'll visit the historic Strand District and the Railroad Museum, and tour The Bishop's Palace, also known as Gresham's Castle, a massive Victorian home and one of the few buildings to survive the 1900 hurricane.
Finally, our second step will be over to San Antonio, where we’ll “Remember the Alamo." Our guided tour will include the Alamo, River Walk, Spanish missions, the Spanish Governor's Palace, and Japanese Botanical Gardens. We'll finish with a cruise on the San Antonio River.
Along the way we'll enjoy several Continental breakfasts, box lunches on some of the tours, and a lot more.
