To celebrate two friends 40th birthdays, we (3 couples) are flying to Dallas on 9/29 and leaving 10/2. The main focus of the trip is the Cowboys/Bears game (each bday boy is a fan of one of those teams).
I've been reading the forums trying to decide where to stay, transportation, etc.
From what I gather (please help correct me if I'm wrong!) - it should either be in the Fort Worth area or Uptown Dallas. Other than the game, the only thing I know someone wants to do is The Texas Book Depository/Sixth Floor Museum. I would love some shopping.
Also, if I understand right, a car wouldn't be needed in Fort Worth and they have transportation to Irving for the games. In one of the articles on TA I read that a car is a must in Dallas but that navigating the city is hard because of the lack of directional/street signs. But I also read that DART is good. And that the Trinity Railway Express runs from Dallas to Fort Worth, except on Sundays.
So I'm a little confused! We are three couples in our early 40s. We love good food. Music and a fun non 'meat market' bar would be great. Shopping.
What do you suggest Dallas/Fort Worth experts?
