24 Hours in Dallas and Fort Worth
Written by Leah Walker
One of the best times to visit Dallas-Fort Worth is September. The scorching summer heat is slowly subsiding and the legendary State Fair of Texas begins. Autumn means football in the Lone Star state, and the beloved Dallas Cowboys are back on the gridiron. Known jointly as the Metroplex, Dallas and Fort Worth have their own identities. The Big D has a diverse, international, and cosmopolitan vibe, while Cowtown offers a traditional Texas feel, mixed with a world-class cultural scene. By exploring both Dallas and Fort Worth, visitors experience the best of both worlds.
The Metroplex is sprawling, thus a car is a practical option. Plus, finding a parking spot is rarely an issue.
DART has 64 stations and four different lines, making it simple to get around downtown Dallas and its suburbs. The Trinity Railroad Express joins the downtowns of Dallas and Fort Worth.
The M-Line streetcar connects the Dallas Arts District with the popular Uptown and West Village areas. Molly the Trolley travels throughout downtown Fort Worth and is free.
