Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is one of the world's largest airports, handling tens of millions of passengers each year – and it is so vast that it is almost like a city in itself. The airport is situated to the northwest of central Dallas, and close by you can find a broad selection of accommodation, from comfortable and convenient airport hotels to affordable motels on nearby highways.
Most hotels in the Dallas-Fort Worth International area have good road or public transport links to the airport itself and to the attractions of central Dallas. There are several accommodation options on Highway 114, which runs from the airport towards the city. You can even find accommodation right on International Parkway, the highway that runs through the centre of the airport complex.
After you check in at your hotel near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, head to the C. R. Smith Museum, where you can learn about the history of American Airlines.

Alternatively, discover more about the history of the area at the ‘Settlement to City Museums’, situated just a few minutes’ drive north of the airport complex. Housed in period buildings, these small local museums show you what life would have been like for the 19th century settlers who began to develop the land around Dallas-Fort Worth International, and how the area grew from a prairie to a thriving metropolis.
