Making your way to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field
The enormous metro area of Dallas is served by two main airports. Dallas/Ft. Worth is one of the largest and busiest airports in America. It’s located exactly between the cities of Fort Worth and Dallas. DFW is served by the DART Light Rail and buses as well as by Trinity Railway Express commuter rail line. The airport is made up of five large terminals. Within security, all the terminals are connected by the SkyLink train, running every two minutes. Outside of security, the free Terminal Link vans run approx. every ten minutes. WiFi is available throughout the airport for a fee.
The much smaller single-terminal Dallas Love Field is just six miles away from downtown, within the city limits. DART's Love Link 524 bus operates between Inwood/Love Field Station and the airport, connection from the DART Rail Green Line and Orange Line. WiFi in DAL is free for the first 30 minutes of use. No matter which airport you are flying from, remember that Dallas traffic is legendary, and while you could theoretically get there in an hour, you’d be better off giving yourself at least two hours to make the drive.
Arriving in San Antonio
San Antonio’s pride and joy is its gorgeous River Walk, which has been wonderfully restored in recent years and now serves as a major destination for locals and tourists alike. Largely shaded and located a story beneath street level, it’s a great place to enjoy a long lunch by the waterside. Eclectic stores and tempting boutiques are scattered along its length, so intersperse your strolling with shopping.
Of course, San Antonio’s most famous place is the site of The Alamo, where Davy Crockett and other brave men made a stand for freedom. It has been wonderfully preserved and now offers moving exhibits about the historical significance of the old mission. If your visit whets your historical appetite, keep the theme going with a visit to the Witte Museum. For a slightly less serious take, the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum offers exhibits on Texas Rangers and wildlife, along with tasty steaks and hamburgers.
