12 hour layover in DFW

September 24, 2007

I may have to spend a grueling 12 hour layover in Dallas Forth Worth Texas airport after the holidays. What can I do in Dallas in 12 hours?

Last year I had a 4 hour long layover in Hong Kong, and my boyfriend and I managed to sneak in a ferry/boat trip and a nice and tasty and cheap noodle soup meal before continuing on to our trip back home. What is there to do in Dallas??

Update 2/13/2008:

Well, I do know now. There are wineries in Grapevine, near Dallas Fort Worth airport, that are worth your while, if you happen to have a loong layover in Dallas. We started our wine tasting at Homestead and met a very charming host (bad teeth but utterly charming hehe). Then we had lunch at the outdoor patio of La Buena Vida, where we listened to some very talented guitar players while we nibbled on cheese, crackers, and salami, and most of all, enjoyed two great bottles of wine (an awesome malbec and a malbec blend) that we brought home from Buenos Aires. Now who says long layovers are no fun and there is nothing to do in Dallas? : -)
