Cheap Flights to Dallas
The fourth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S., there's much
more to Dallas than big hair and J.R. Ewing-styled oil barons. Visitors
to the Big D are often surprised to learn that it is home to more
restaurants per capita than New York City, including a battalion of
celebrity-chef establishments. It is also a magnet for international
arts connoisseurs, with the largest urban Arts District in the U.S. And
this is the city that has elevated shopping to an art, where
shopaholics get dressed up to go to its plethora of boutiques and
high-end stores like Barney's and Neiman-Marcus.
But in Dallas, the passion for sports also runs deep. The city
hosts teams from five major professional sports leagues - including the
Cowboys, one of the most recognizable and successful franchises in the
world, playing at the new Cowboys Stadium - along with the NBA's
Mavericks, the MLB's Rangers, the NHL's Stars and Major League Soccer's
FC Dallas. Fans extend the love to Dallas' plethora of amateur and
Tourists will find that the city is home to a surprising array of
eclectic and luxury hotels. To make the most of your visit, check the
online Dallas Observer, a handy source of information on music, bars,
nightlife and events in Dallas. Another good source is the Sunday
entertainment section in the city's daily newspaper, The Dallas Morning
In Dallas, visitors can live large and
think big, like the city itself. It offers a thriving culinary scene, a
top-notch Arts District, multiple luxury hotels, pro sports, trendy
entertainment districts and shopping venues that rival New York - but
at more wallet-friendly prices.
When to Go

sporting events and outdoor activities peak. The lowest prices are

although the weather can be hot.

Love Field Airport is conveniently located 10 minutes from downtown.
Cheap flights can often be found from as close as Houston
