A very informative and really interesting tour about money, money-printing and currency in the US. The Bureau of Engraving has another location (the main on) in Washington, DC and this is the place where all the money for the States is printed. Awesome!

You have to know, though that there is a very high security check before you get inside, so be sure to leave your cameras, tech-tools and anything that could be seen as a weapon. The tour lasts around 50/60 minutes, so its not so long, but is better to go on the early one, because here aren't so many people and you can catch more of what the guide says.

Don't miss it! See it!

Fort Worth Travel guide

Dallas might be more sophisticated and cosmopolitan than its neighbor, but the locals prefer their town’s gentler pace and sense of comfort and visitors might agree. Fort Worth has always been a gateway to the West. It had many roles beginning as a frontier army town [...]
