- Life on Land – The Work, History and Tradition of the Texas Cattle Business
Visit The King Ranch, the biggest and most historic of them all – includes lunch at one of the cowboy camphouses. Learn the history of the ranch and the cattle business and its importance to Texas.
- Life at Sea – Seafaring over 450 Years
Experience seafaring on genuine oceangoing vessels spanning four-and-a-half centuries: the exact replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships the Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta, and on the U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier Lexington.
