Dallas, TX became my home just two short years ago when I signed on to work for the LUV airline. After two years, I have all the special spots to hit and where you can skip.
If you are like most weekend warriors, you have little time to explore a city. With such a small amount of time on the ground. It is important to have a game plan to see all the important spots. To help get the most out of your weekend, we bring you the 411 on multiple cities. Check back for updated cities and if you have any requested spots, please drop them in the comment section! In each post you will find the following:
- Flight/airport information
- Best places to stay
- Top Attractions
- Any other tips from the location
Dallas has a few different areas that I would recommend. First up is uptown, this is your upscale party area with lots of shops, restaurants, and activities. Hotels in this area range from boutique to chains such as Hotel ZaZa or Hotel Crescent Court and due to location are a little pricier. Deep Ellum is your hipster area with lots of great breweries and wall art. Recently revitalized, you will find many outside bars and restaurants with a certain feel. For places to stay, head over to Downtown Dallas to pick from your 2-5 star dreams.
Downtown Dallas has many high rise hotels if you want to stay in the heart of it all. Close to the American Airlines center which boasts sports teams such as the Mavericks or large concerts. Depending on what is going on that weekend, hotels can be expensive or under $100 for a nice 3-4 star hotel.
Probably your cheapest option are the airport hotels. DFW has many located around the airport and most have free airport shuttles. Please be advised of hotel shuttle hours as some are not 24 hours (We see you coming in at 1 am ☺ ). Dallas Love has fewer options, but the closest hotels are The Doubletree at the end of the runway, and a combined Aloft/Element by Westin located within 5 minutes from the airport. Both are safe and usually at a decent price.
