When you hear someone say that everything is bigger in Texas, they're not kidding, and when you travel to Dallas-Fort Worth from Phoenix, you will be right in the middle of the all the bigness. Dallas is home to the Cowboys and Dealey Plaza, and is a city that attracts both vacationers and those who are on business.
To this day, many visit the Plaza to pay their respects to JFK and tour the Sixth Floor Museum. The George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum offers an insight into the 43rd President's presidency, and the Stockyards, located in Ft. Worth, pay tribute to the city's Wild West days with a living museum.
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), sits right in between Dallas and Ft. Worth. An important travel hub for Texas and the southwest, the airport is so large, it was given its own zip code. Getting around Dallas-Ft Worth is best by car. Major highways that cross each city intersect DFW, and since downtown streets are laid out in a grid pattern, you're not likely to get lost.
Hints and Tips
DFW is a two-hour nonstop flight away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). Flights with transfers average four hours. BBQ is a Texan food staple, so while you're in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, enjoy a serving at Snow’s BBQ.
