How do I get from Arlington, Texas to American Airlines Center
Hi there..I'm arriving in Dallas on the 16th from New Zealand staying in Addison and was wondering where I should go and what I should do for 3-4 days so I can leave with a real appreciation for the city! Are there any special events on or must do's for a 30 something guy..Thanks
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.
Hi 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? Thanks Dean
Hi we have one full day and overnight in Dallas in early March 2013 before flying to Nashville, would love some tips on where to stay and what to see. We won't have a car so will need to use a taxi or public transport to get around, not sure yet whether to stay out close to the airport or come into the city. We would have to take in the JFK site and Book Depository but there must be more - also don't mind a bit of shopping!! Any advice on where to stay would be great too - Thx
Hi, I have decided to relocate to Dallas from Atlanta GA. Unfortunately, the job market in Atlanta has been very slow and I have been only able to find work through temp agencies. I have saved some money and have decided to move to dallas to look for work. I have 15 years of customer service experience in banking and insurance. Do you have any suggestions on the first steps I should take in my job search in Dallas and do you know of any extended stay hotels on DART in which I can check into until I find an apartment? I would appreciate any suggestions or help in my new beginning..Thank you

We'll be driving from Dallas to New Orleans in early November. I am not familiar with the area and we're in no rush. It can be done in a day with no stopovers but since we have a lot of time on our hands I figured we could plan a stop somewhere. Any tips or ideas? We love the country side and beautiful nature.
I will be going to the cowboys game early december and would like to know about bus service from dallas ft worth to cowboys stadium in arlington
We are travelling from Australia and staying in Dallas for three nights with our 11 month old baby. We want to see the sights and stay in a safe place. Not sure if we should get car hire or use public transport. Can anyone recommend an area to stay that is safe and is it ok to drive around?
We have a six hour layover in Dallas which might give us time to rent a car and check out Dallas for a couple hours. Any ideas?
Hello, my husband, 10 year old grandson and I will be staying at the Best Western City Place Inn at 4150 North Central Expressway for three nights in August 2011. A friend of mine from Houston suggested I write and find out if this location is in a safe area of Dallas and find out what local Dallasites think about the area. We are from Midland and normally go to Ft. Worth, so we know very little about Dallas. Appreciate any input y'all might have about the area we will be staying in. Thanks and looking forward to our visit to Dallas! PS Umm...is Dallas as humid as I remember from a visit there about 5 years ago? Being from west Texas, the only time we have any humidity at all is when it rains. I don't think my hairspray I use in Midland is going to hold up in Dallas... :-)
Hi, I have read all the comments good and bad, safe and dangerous on here about Dallas, fantastic information, Thank you! I am going to live in Dallas for a year, I have not even visited there yet, but I need to figure out where I should be looking to live. I am from London UK, used to being surrounded by bars, restaurants able to walk or use public transport just about anywhere in the city... I know I am not going to get that in Dallas, but is there an area, that would cover some of that, restaurants and bars (not chain ones)a cool/hip place to be. No children so no need for schools, would like to feel safe walking around even just a small area. Any sugestions very much appriciated.
Hi travelling to Texas in November and would like to do a couple of nights at a range, Have seen Wildcatter near Dallas are there any as good around San Antonio and Corpus Christi Many thanks
Australian airline QANTAS!!! is coming direct to dallas from next week!!!! We are just wanting to know if there is any other aussies out there that love state of origin, or who know how to see or listen to it!!!!
Where's the best area to stay to enjoy the full Dallas experience? Thanks in advance! :)
I will be in Dallas for work and will have a free day (a Friday) in early May. Most of the posts I have read are not all that complimentary about tourism in Dallas - can any of you suggest some interesting things to do that don't involve hiring a car for my free day???
Hello, Does anyone know if there is a form of public trans from Dallas to the stadium? We are considering relocating and I'm just curious :) Thx!
How costly would it be if I stay the summer up in Dallas, Texas?
After I graduate from High School (Which is in 3 more months!) I plan on staying in Dallas, Texas for maybe a month to settle down and relax from High School until September for when I ship out to boot camp in San Diego for the Marines. I plan on training in this one MMA Gym in Dallas and right now I'm saving up some money from my tips as a waiter and want to know if I could get a room in Dallas and how much that would cost me. Thanks. P.S. I live 5 hours from Dallas.
I m going for a conference in Dallas for 3 days...kindly mention worth seeing places and cheap shopping areas.... secondly, some cheap hotels upto70.
Hi! We need to spend one night in Texas between two flights and for convenience sake we picked a hotel located near DFW airport. We'll have a bit of time to kill in the morning before we need to get to the airport (our flight doesn't leave until 3:00 pm), is there anything to see or do in that area? Not sure I'd want to make it all the way to Dallas or Fort Worth and back... Thanks in advance!
Hi VT'ers! I've been checking out the Dallas, Texas forums, because good old Qantas airlines (AUS) have just announced direct flights and they are going cheap, so I thought, why not?!! I love coming over to the US and finding new places to explore. Now, I don't know whether to stay in Dallas, or just fly in and stay somewhere else, like Austin or Fort Worth! Oh, decisions, decisions! :) I'm thinking of coming over in Sept/Oct, 2011 (just read about the State Fair) so, where would be the better place to stay, for a one week visit on a whim, just because the airfares are cheap..haha! Thanks in advance!
I was wondering how much it costs for the west end carriage ride.
So, I arrive at the DFW International Airport and need to get to Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion. What is the best way. I have read about the airport shuttle vans,taxi... Which company is best, most affordable, reliable, EASIEST, etc.
I need a recommendation for a restaurant near the Hilton Anatole. No fast foods. A nice wine list.
Okay so its really getting close to travel time, and I am not sure really what the weather in Dallas is like. I hear hot and humid. Truly I will be in the hotel most of the time, at Convention and all but.. I may wonder outside once or twice..haha... so what is appropriate attire for late October, when walking the streets of Dallas?
I know this is a tourist oriented website, but I thought I could still get some helpful advice. I have just moved to Dallas by myself and am in the midst of apartment searching. I was hoping someone who knows the area could help me with some helpful advice of where to look (and likewise, not to). I am set up to view some apartments in north Dallas right now (The Dunes - Audelia Road, Park on Preston - Preston Road, Montfort Crossing - Harvest Hill, and Sage Creek Ranch - Rosemeade Parkway). I'm a 27 year old girl who'll be living alone so safety is definitely one of my concerns right now. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
How much are the carriage rides?
