Where is Ascend?

Giddy up, cowboys and cowgirls! We’re headed to Cowtown, USA, for a boot-scootin’ good time. Don’t let its rich Wild West history fool you. Fort Worth, Texas, is home to a vibrant culinary and arts scene, and recently named its lively downtown as the best in the nation. From incredible museums and lovely gardens to a rockin’ nightlife and gourmet restaurants, downtown Fort Worth has all the allure of a major metropolis without the city-slicker attitude. After you gain a wealth of skills and knowledge at Ascend, saddle up and trot into downtown Fort Worth, where you can mosey around Cowtown and enjoy a true southwestern gem.
