Everything you associate with Texas can be found in Dallas — Fort Worth. This is where you come to see the Dallas Cowboys play and the Fort Worth cowboys rope — where big hats, big hair and big horns are the norm. But stereotypes are just the tip of the DFW iceberg: The Metroplex is a hotbed of history, art, sports and family-centric exploits. The problem is that all of these enticements can be found in both cities, so determining where to allocate your time can get tricky.

So plan an even 50–50 split: Though the 32-mile trek may seem like too much of a stretch, you would be remiss to confine yourself to only half of Dallas — Fort Worth. If you’re interested in history, you can start your visit off at the Fort Worth Stockyards before touring Dealey Plaza and the Sixth Floor Museum in downtown Dallas.

Meanwhile, art buffs can divvy up their time between Fort Worth’s Kimbell Art Museum and the Dallas Museum of Art. And if you’ve brought the kids along, devote some time to both the Fort Worth Zoo and the Dallas World Aquarium. (While you’re at it, stop in at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.)

There’s no shortage of hotels here — Dallas alone contains more than 77,000 hotel rooms. However, we would like to share with you two hotels that will be perfect during your stay.

Westin Dallas Downtown

The Westin Dallas Downtown places you in the heart of Dallas’ central business district. Enjoy easy access to major corporate headquarters and attractions. Guests can sleep well in one of their 326 guestrooms and suites feature views of downtown Dallas, Westin’s signature Heavenly® Bed and Heavenly® Bath, high-speed Internet access and a coffee maker with complimentary gourmet coffee and tea.

With more than 31,000 square feet of flexible Dallas meeting and event space, our hotel is an ideal setting for events of any size. Within a mile of the hotel are hundreds of corporate offices, the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, and the American Airlines Center. The nearby Akard Station is linked to a host of major destinations via all four DART rail lines, including Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

The Renaissance Worthington Fort Worth Downtown

Deemed “The Star of Texas”, the Worthington is Fort Worth’s original AAA Four-Diamond luxury hotel.
