Fort Worth Travel & Transportation

It's easy to get here. For practically anyone, from nearly anywhere. You know what they say, "location, location, location." They're right, of course. But DFW International Airport, the world' second busiest, and four intersecting highways don't hurt either. DFW Airport's only 25 minutes from downtown Fort Worth. You can shuttle, bus or taxi right to your hotel. Folks around here would be hard pressed to remember the last road-closing blizzard or flood. Sure makes it tough to use the weather as a excuse for being late to work, but otherwise it's great. Once you're in Fort Worth, getting around is as easy as deciding where to go. Even a relaxed stroll downtown is a welcome option. And whoever decided years ago what goes where must have been a parent -- of an eager four-year-old. Everything's close enough to keep the "Are we there yets?" to a minimum. Because if getting there is half the fun, how fun can it be?

Downtown Fort Worth is just 17.5 miles and 25 minutes by ground transporation from DFW International Airport. It's the second busiest airport in the nation, with non-stop service to more than 200 cities worldwide and more than 2,000 flights daily. Thanks to its premium location in the center of the United States, getting to Fort Worth and back home is a breeze.
