Base Tour: We're taking a trip inside the gates! Join the Sheppard Air Force Base Public Affairs Office for a tour of the most diverse Air Force Base in the country. Visit training facilities, and catch a glimpse of some of the spaces designed to provide services for the people who live and work on the installation.

Military Affiliated Small Business Tour: Downtown Wichita Falls has a number of businesses that are owned and operated by veterans, servicemembers, and military spouses. This walking tour will give guests the opportunity to visit some of them, hear from the owners about how they got their start, and do some shopping to support local military families. 

Midwestern State University Tour: in 2019, Midwestern State University opened an 87,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art science facility, built by Texas Lyceum Alum Dave Lilley and his team. Tour the Centennial Hall to learn about its construction, and its importance to the region, including a unique partnership with Sheppard Air Force Base to provide care for local servicemembers.
