    • Where to stay?

      by bost0067 Online Now Mar 26, 2014 at 1:01 PM

      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!

      Things to do with an almost 2 year old late April

      by jennwerner Online Now Mar 4, 2014 at 6:05 AM

      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,
      Jenn

      Traffic on 121 into DFW

      by mason49 Online Now Feb 11, 2014 at 9:41 PM

      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?

      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.

      Thanks!

      Greyhound Express vs Megabus

      by ptrim Online Now Mar 3, 2013 at 2:20 PM

      Hello,
      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.

      Thanks,

      Less than one and a half hour between flights, is that enough?

      by christine.j Online Now Oct 21, 2012 at 3:07 AM

      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?

      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!!

      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

      North Central Expressway Safety

      by loreece Online Now Jul 23, 2011 at 6:34 PM

      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... :-)

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.
