If you've heard the saying that everything's bigger in Texas, just landing in Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) will fulfill that promise. As America's largest land-locked metropolitan area, Dallas-Fort Worth combines two major urban centers in the Texas blackland prairies.
Here, you can stroll through the Nasher Sculpture Center, bring out your inner-kid at the Dallas World Aquarium, or watch a Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium.
Navigating between Dallas and Fort Worth by car is rather easy, thanks to Highways 114 and 183 going east/west between the two. However, the distance and traffic between the cities means you'll need to be selective. If you're a history buff, tour the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas and the Fort Worth Stockyards. Art lovers should take time to visit the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Kimbell Art Museum. Then, stop at Del Frisco’s steakhouse, in Sundance Square, for an enormous Texan meal.
Hints and Tips
From Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), it'll take about three hours and 40 minutes to land in DFW. Since you'll be touching down in one of America's largest airports, sprawled across 17,207 acres, you'll need to hop on the Skylink, or grab a shuttle to the rental car center. Then, head down International Parkway and choose to go west towards Fort Worth, or east to Dallas.
