Dallas/Fort Worth Layover

Hi all, I'm in transit going through Dallas/Fort Worth international, with a layover of about 9-10 hours (might be a little less). I've never been through here before, and I think I'll have some time to kill, would you guys recommend going to either Dallas or Fort Worth and visiting a couple must sees? Or because the airport is pretty far away, just stick to waiting around in the terminal all day? Many thanks for your help.

    Dallas might be the most souless city in America. Up there with Phoenix

      Visit Klyde Warren Park with food trucks from 11-3ish and you can hop on a free M-Line Trolley to see Uptown and Downtown. If you've got more time to kill, you could visit the flagship Half Price Books on Northwest Highway (it's massive)

      As said, there's nothing really special about Dallas other than the POMO skyscrapers. People just come here because for jobs and it's a tax shelter, it's a sprawled city with nothing interesting geographically or culturally. I would leave in a heartbeat for the right job offer

        Thanks for the ideas, I already went through and ended up sleeping through my layover in D terminal... but I've got a longer layover on the way back, about 13-14 hours. I've been thinking about seeing Grapevine or some parts of Fort Worth after visiting some things here and there in Dallas. Should be enough time to go through at least two town centers you guys think? What's transport like? Taxis better than ubers etc? If I take buses will I need cash or is there some way I can pay with debit?

        I might as well make the most of it, heard there's some nice places hidden around grapevine especially.

      Truth. It's a great place to earn money, and consume food and products from around the world, but I would NEVER recommend anyone visit here for fun.

      Do not bother with Taxis. Uber only. Do not use the DART bus. This place is made for cars. The only people that don't have cars are criminals and very poor people. You NEED a car to live here. homeless black people just use the bus to transport themselves between various crackhouses.

      If you like walking around urban areas and going to bars and stuff, Fort Worth is an ok place do that and is pretty safe at night. However, since you're just here for a layover, here are my recommendations:

      1. Visit the sixth floor museum (killing JFK is the most interesting thing we have ever done)
      2. North Park Mall. You can tell who is from Dallas or "from Dallas" based on who has slid down the thing everyone wants to slide down.
      3. Nasher Sculpture Center (Our best outdoor museum. It's usually hot as shit, so enjoy the nice weather)

      You want authentic food? Eat at El Fenix. Note the low ratings on review sites and upset reddit-tier commentary. The mere existence of Tex-Mex upsets many people who sperg out about it not being "real Mexican food". Getting BBQ is a pain in the ass, will involve waiting in a line at 11:00AM if you want to do it right so don't half-ass it, Tex-Mex is better for a layover when you have time constraints. If you must have BBQ then the best balance between convenience, price, and availability is Sonny Bryan's.

        That'll keep me busy for sure. Keen on seeing the sculpture centre coincidentally. Thanks man. I'm no snob when it comes to food so Tex-Mex sounds up my alley. I had a similarly long layover in Miami overnight. Didn't have much trouble with their Miami Mover and Metrorail, I offered some newports to some future scientists and billionaires so that seemed to keep them happy. Just wondering if I really do have to take the DART bus (had some lousy ubers) it won't mean I get my laptop bag snatched at the first stop? I'll definitely stick to ubers though.
        How are the hotels and shopping centres? Could you waltz in and take their bathroom or are they picky about who gets to walk in?
