I have a stopover in Dallas tomorrow for 5 hours. Is there anything you can suggest doing whilst I am there.
Is it very far to take the Metro into the Downtown area? (if not, how long and what are the costs?)
Also, if I cannot get to the downtown area, are there any places to go to near the airport?
(Reason asking is that regardless of having Emerald (British Airways Gold) Status on one World, American Airlines lounges are utterly RUBBISH where you are handed 2 (if that) drinks vouchers!! NOT what we are accustomed to in Europe).
So don't want to kill time in a rubbish lounge with overpriced food (as food is not free either) and drinks that you need to pay for.
Thanks for any advice given its much appreciated.
Moved to the Dallas area a few months ago. Trying to decide where to take my mother and sister when they arrive, for dinner, sightseeing and fun. Any suggestions?
Hello, I am in need of some well thought out answers!
A little back story...
I am moving from Los Angeles to Dallas with my fiancé. We're aware that the upscale neighborhoods more central to Dallas are University Park and Highland Park, but unfortunately the homes there are out of our budget. We've explored surrounding suburbs, but we live in a very central location now so I'm used to city living. I also really loathe driving longer than 20 minutes :)
I need to know if it is TRULY the case that anything south of the city center is unsafe. I get the impression that some of these opinions have to do with race, and possibly the fact that some may have a different mentality of what makes them feel unsafe or uncomfortable. The way some speak about this place reminds me of how people here in LA talk about Compton, which really is known by ALL as a scary place that I would never under any circumstances visit. Is this area of Dallas really as bad as they make it sound?
I currently live in the Miracle Mile/Hancock Park area of LA. There's a combination of apartments, multi-million dollar homes, and shopping. Here, if you go a few blocks east or south and it can get less desirable. Even still, in this sought after neighborhood, I see just as many homeless people sleeping on bus stop benches or collecting recyclables in their carts. One of the residents in the apartment complex we currently live in is suspected of dealing drugs. Plenty of other undesirable things happen here that come with living in a central part of town. This doesn't make me feel unsafe...it is just a part of city life.
We have our eyes locked on a lovely historical house, in the South Blvd/Park Row neighborhood just East of the 45 and South of the 30 Freeway. I believe It's near the Forest Theater. Every home in this neighborhood looks well kept with nicely manicured lawns and landscaping. It shows the neighborhood crime rate as low on Trulia, but with a higher crime rate in the surrounding areas. Is it considered up and coming?
We will most likely be doing our shopping in Highland/University Park because that's where the Trader Joe's is and is of course, the nicer part of town. But I wouldn't mind living in a cheaper area that is up and coming, if that is the case. Also, does anyone know about the resale value of these homes?
Any and all information will help. Please give answers based on facts and not race please! I've read some unfriendly posts regarding race in certain areas and that's just not how I base my opinions of safe/unsafe neighborhoods.
Thanks, everyone! :)

I am heading to Dallas in April for a girls weekend. We will be attending the ACM's 50th Anniversary Show at the Cowboy's Stadium. We are wondering where the best place to stay is? We are all in our mid/late 20's. Looking for an area close to some good night life and safe enough to walk around. We have our own vehicle so transportation to and from the stadium is not an issue for us. Should we stay right in Arlington near the stadium or closer to downtown Dallas? Thanks for any help!!!
Hello there!we are going to Dallas this October for a couple of nights and it's our first time there so we were wondering if it's safe to stay in downtown? And what are the best places to visit? What would you recommend? thanks a lot in advance ;)
Is there a museum that showcases Tv's and radios? if not in Dallas, in the vicinity.
Hey Metroplex residents. Two years ago I relocated from Fort Worth to New Jersey. The last time I was in the Dallas area, I couldn't get anywhere without a car. And while living in Fort Worth, I never discovered the DART light rail.
This October I'm traveling back to Dallas for an event at the American Airlines Center. I know for a fact that the DART light rail can take you right to the arena. Also, I found out that the DART Orange Line will be extended all the way to DFW Airport come August.
Currently, I plan to fly into DFW Airport and stay at the Hyatt Regency on airport property. I could then ride the DART Orange Line from DFW Airport to the American Airlines Center, and from the arena back to the airport.
Since I do not wish to rent a car, I figure that taking advantage of the DART Orange Line would be my best option.
Could I rely on the DART Orange Line to get me from DFW Airport to the American Airlines Center, and vice versa?
Will I still need a rental car even with this upcoming extension of the DART Orange Line to DFW Airport?
Does anybody know of any tours going in the evening from Downtown Dallas to Billy Bob's Rodeo Plaza, Ft. Worth & returning at night ?
Alternatively, what would be the cab fare from Fairmont Dallas to Billy Bob's Rodeo Plaza in Ft. Worth ?
Thanks for any help offered.
My two brothers, my father and I will be visiting the Dallas area this coming June for a long weekend. We will be catching a few baseball games and are wondering what is the best location to stay for tourist attractions. We will have a car to get to the ballpark so we are more concerned with staying in a good location in terms of tourist attractions, good atmosphere, and getting the best overall feel for Texas. After doing some research I'm kind of confused if I should be looking just right in downtown Dallas, or if something like Market Place or West End is better? Thanks for the help!
What bus, train, etc. would I take to get from Sherman to Dallas? I will be teaching at Austin College (Sherman) this summer + would like to take advantage of some quick site seeing in Dallas on weekends. Thanks for your response(s).
I will be in Dallas the last week of April with my almost 2 year old daughter. She has her 1 year follow up with her surgeon from her cranial vault reconstruction. The appointment is on a Monday and we will fly in on Saturday morning. We are looking for something fun for a 2 year old to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? We live in a city that has one of the best zoo's in the country so maybe something besides a zoo. We stay in North Dallas near Medical City hospital. If that helps any.... Thanks,
I am traveling to Dallas, TX for a weekend should I rent a car?
I live east of dallas and fly out of DFW every week. I have a 126 mile drive from my driveway to express parking. I usually leave my house @ 5:00 am and have no problem catching a 10:00 flight. I am thinking about an 8:00 flight which would mean getting to the airport by 7:00 am. I drive thru Greenville down 121 thru mickinney on to the airport with only a little traffic. So NOW MY QUESTION... What time does the traffic usually begin to back up on 121 on monday morning?
A group of girlfriends (mature) are planning on a weekend to visit the Arboretum, we would like a nice hotel close by.
Any suggestions please ?
Can you recommend a good neighbourhood or area. Safe, good schools, not too much traffic. I do like water, so a lake would be nice.
You can tell me your favourite area, also the one where I should stay away.
Is Dallas a bike friendly city? If yes, where is a good (and cheap) place to rent bikes?

Hello. I am going to Dallas from Hungary and I don't know what is the weather during autumn and winter. Should I bring a lot of warm clothes and boots? Because in my country we have a really cold winter with minus temperature. And during autumn is the weather still hotter?
What did the Sterling Hotel used to be called?

I will be in Dallas soon for a convention, and then want to travel to Austin from Dallas.
I have been reading about both Megabus and Greyhound Express, but haven't found a comparison. I think I have to pay for another ticket if I travel on Megabus with two bags.
Any insights you can contribute would be most welcome.
This week we're going to book our flights for next year's visit in California and one connection looks very good. It's a British Airways/American Airlines flight with a change of planes in Dallas. But there are only 85 minutes to do this. The flights will be on one ticket, but with customs being done in the first port of entry in the USA, we'll have to go through passport control, get our luggage, go through customs and check in again for the connecting flight. Do you think this can be done in just 85 minutes if our incoming flight is on time?
It looks very tight to me.
We will be in Dallas/Fort Worth for a few days and were trying to find places we could park our hire car in the city centre so we could spend the day looking around, somewhere near the JFK memorial-pioneer plaza-reunion tower(if its open) etc seems like the area we would like to park. Would be on a weekend so what rates would we be looking at to park for a day?
