Cities of the West | Across History, Cultures and Architectures

Seven Directions Tours
The Past & Present in Los Angeles, CA

Explore the big Western states: Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California. The history of the western territory can be fully appreciated in each of these states. Each represents the center of contest and struggle, and eventually, peaceful settlement under the banner of "Manifest Destiny." Some cities were there before the Anglos arrived, some started as outposts and are now famous art centers, and others “came out of the blue”. It is an extraordinary and fascinating journey through time, history, people and art. This is not without forgetting the current culinary and shopping experiences! This 'Out West' tour promises a fascinating journey of the Old West lifestyle to the New West, with a focus on history and alliance of three very different cultures: Native Americans, Hispanic, and Anglo-Americans. Among the many sites and enjoyable things to see and do on this tour you will visit a 19th century military camp, the oldest State capitol in America, a modern city-oasis in the desert, the most famous gambling mecca on the planet.

Discover the Arts and Experience the True West

Seven Directions Tours
Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth

Howdy! and Bienvenidos! as folks say here in Texas and New Mexico. On this tour we will visit two of each State's most famous cities: Fort Worth and Santa Fe. Each locale shares an exclusive art scene and boasts a unique heritage. Both cities have also been selected as Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation (in 2009) based on the authentic experience each offers to visitors. Exploring these vibrant downtown urban settings, one sees firsthand the rewards of cultural diversity and landscapes, attractive architecture, and understands the firm commitment to each city's historic preservation.

Fort Worth, Texas, the “City of Cowboys and Culture”, was once a frontier town of ambitious cattle barons and European emigrants. In the present, the city features a world-renowned cultural arts district, which in part is an endowment made by oil magnates. Engaging museums exhibit contemporary architecture and collections. With its preserved and proud Western heritage Fort Worth offers a uniquely rich experience to visitors. The city is also home to the Fort Worth Herd, which denotes the world’s only Texas Longhorn cattle drive.

Skies of the Southwest| Amazing stars

Seven Directions Tours
A galaxy

Some places in Arizona and New Mexico are generally pollution-free, also free of interfering lights during the dark hours. For nighttime star-gazing there really is no place on earth to rival each state's night sky's view of the heavens. Hence, the reason why so many observatories in both territories. Whether you are an amateur or professional astronomer this tour is for you! At least five select observatories will be visited, where of course telescopes will be available. During the day you will visit terrestrial time machines, like the Grand Canyon whose origins date back some two billion years!
