Hi all, just wondering if people think this is a realistic achievable plan:
I arrive at DFW from Sydney at 1.45pm on a Monday in April, and fly out again to Chicago the next day at 5.25pm. If possible I'd like to see the 6th Floor JFK museum in Dallas, and also soak up the atmosphere of Fort Worth, during my short stay. I don't want to hire a car because I'll be tired and unfamiliar with the US road rules.
So I'm thinking of this plan:
After clearing immigration & customs, take shuttle bus from DFW to the hotel: Holiday Inn DFW Airport South.
After checking in & dropping bag at hotel, walk 15mins from hotel to Centreport TRE train station.
Catch TRE train to Union Station, Dallas.
Walk a couple of blocks to "6th Floor" JFK museum and see it until it closes at 6pm.
Have some dinner in Dallas then head back to the hotel via the TRE train, walking from Centreport station back to hotel.
The next morning, check out of the hotel but leave my luggage there.
Catch the TRE train from centreport into Fort Worth and spend the morning wandering around including seeing the cattle drive through the stockyards.
After lunch, catch a TRE train back to centreport, again walk to the hotel, pick up my luggage, then get the shuttle bus to DFW airport for my afternoon flight.
Is this a do-able plan? My main concern is whether I'll have time to get to the 6th floor JFK museum in time to spend some time inside before it closes. Anything else in my plan I should be worried about?
