When I visit the Stockyards, I always park here. It is easy to find, park, and easy to exit. It is based on the honor system, but I suspect the do check to see if you've paid. $2 an hour or $5 all day. It is a good price. Plus, the spots a wide too.
Located off of East Exchange drive across from the Fort Worth Live Stock Exhange Building

Been passing through this airport for years. It's a hub of all international travel. One thing to be aware of it is HUGE! So, if you gotten creative in scheduling your own connecting flights, make sure you link them to terminals that are close together or your going to be running! Running fast..lol! So just keep that in mind. What is nice about this airport is there are lots of wonderful places to eat and shop. Lots of good internet connections and has areas that are total separate from the hallways to help with noise if you happen to be conducting business over the phone.

I flew into Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport with KLM as they seemed to fit with the short time frame of a weekend only. Generally I yet prefer American airlines over European airlines as I personally consider American airlines the most customer friendly, the most flexible, the most helpful, and the most competent in security measures. When I made it back from Texas to Germany earlier than planned, I was lucky to get some easy, quick, and kind help for switching my flight by the American airline. Again, great American customer service also on the ground. Pls take a look at American airlines' web page.

For a slightly off-beat way to get to Ft. Worth, you might take the train from Grapevine. Unfortunately, the steam engine was broken when we were there, so they were using diesel and the ambience isn't quite the same.
We didn't take the train because it would have gotten back too late for my daughter to pick up her son at school. Plus he really loves trains, so it wouldn't have been fair. We did see the train come into the station. The coaches are open-sided. They have other routes too including one to Trinity River.
The "Cotton Belt Route" is approximately 21 miles, linking the historic communities of Grapevine, Colleyville, Smithfield and Fort Worth's historic Stockyards. The Cotton Belt Route arrived in Grapevine in 1888. Grapevine's depot served the community until 1972 when it was officially closed by the company. Passenger service along this route was discontinued about 1930.

These lots require you to put money into the appropriate slot in the automatic attendant.
The website on the stockyards says:
" There are numerous options for parking in the Stockyards National Historic District and most are at Stockyards Station. There is a $3.00 parking fee in lots around the Station with one "Free" lot on the Northeast end of the property [which is where we parked]. Lunch crowds also enjoy "Free" parking from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Monday - Friday. Street parking along East Exchange Avenue is always "Free". Special Event parking throughout the Historic District is $5.00 with the parking closest to the Event being at Stockyards Station."

This station services all types of transportation is available here. Everything is available except for a airplane. This is a lovely addition to the downtown area. The ITC offers access to commuter rail service on the Trinity Railway Express, regional and national Amtrak train service, taxi and bus & trolley service provided by the T. I wondered in here to check it out. Lots of wonderful travel information and there is a customer service desk in the center with people waiting to help you with your needs. Also along one of the walls in display cases is some of the local transportation history.
Located at the corner of 9th and Jones Streets. Address is 1001 Jones Street, Fort Worth, 76102

This is a neat addition that Fort Worth has brought to the historical downtown area. It's a new and "Free" way to get around the downtown area! It services the downtown area weekly and the Stockyards on weekends. The drivers were friendly and tried to share whatever knowledge they had on the area. Their stops at placed near or in front of the major hotels with the downtown area. Check with your hotels or go online and check it out.
Hours are Monday - Sunday 10AM - 10PM, every 15 Minutes.
Stops: Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel & Spa, Commerce Street, Hilton Fort Worth, Blackstone Courtyard/Embassy Suites, Sundance Square (Main & 3rd), Renaissance Worthington, Sunday Square (Houston & 5th), Park Central Hotel, and Omni Fort Worth.

DFW is larger than the island of Manhattan! This huge airport sits between and to the north of the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.
One of its unique features is the Rental Car Center... good because it is new and modern and entirely located on airport grounds. Bad because it is 3 to 5 miles from the airport terminal (though at least it is closer to the big cities).

I flew in from Chicago on Southwest Airlines which uses Dallas Love Field instead of the larger DFW International airport. Mark was kind enough to pick me up at the airport but if he had not been available there are a few shuttles, Super Shuttle which would have been about $50 for the 1st person, $10 more for additional people up to 7 from Dallas Love Field. Yellow Checker Shuttle was $45, didn't see any discount for multiple people.
If you fly into DFW International Airport, it's closer to Ft. Worth and cheaper for shuttle transport, $31 on Super Shuttle and $19 for Yellow Checker.

Our hotel was not well located for seeing the sights, most of what we did was in the Stockyards area and the Cultural district several miles away. Our hotel did have a free shuttle that we could have used on the weekends had Mark and Sarah not picked us up for dinner on Friday and VeronicaG and her husband not been kind enough to pick us up for sightseeing on Saturday. If you don't have a car, you will need to pick a more central hotel that has access to the T, Ft. Worth's bus system. The more central hotels I looked at all seemed a bit more expensive but perhaps that was because I was looking for a room for three.
