WHEN TO VISIT
Best time to visit Dallas – Fort Worth is between Sept-Nov when the temperatures aren’t too hot.
Dallas is in Central Standard Time (GMT-6) or one hour behind New York City.
Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Dallas Love Field (DAL) are the two large airports in Dallas, TX. Both are great options, but DAL is more centrally located, which is often times more convenient. Another consideration is that DAL is the headquarters of Southwest, and DFW is the headquarters of American Airlines. Often times you will be able to find fairly cheap, direct flights to these airports as a result. Once in Dallas, the next question is how should I get around? Overall, Dallas is fairly spread out and generally has accessible parking, so renting a car is a great idea. If you decide not to rent a car, Uber and Lyft are very accessible and affordable.
