Thanksgiving is the perfect time to disconnect from our hectic lives and reconnect with family and friends. And after the feast is over, it's good to get out and explore. One of the best ways to discover the region's best offerings is on DART.
Check out these fun adventures over Thanksgiving weekend.
A Downtown on the Move
Every DART Rail line and most bus routes converge on downtown Dallas, an exciting urban scene with high-caliber parks and the largest arts district in the country. The Nasher Sculpture Center is a world-class oasis of internationally known art, while the Crow Museum of Asian Art displays breathtaking, exotic pieces for free. The Dallas Museum of Art has a diverse permanent collection and some of the best touring exhibits in the country. And near the West End, the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum has a stunning new facility in which to display fascinating – if sobering – artifacts.
Suburbs with Character
Spend some time in the “town square” areas of some North Texas cities, and you’d hardly know you’re in a sprawling metropolis. There’s nothing generic about the downtowns of Plano, Garland, and Carrollton, or the Downtown/Heritage Crossing district of Irving. Whether it’s an old-fashioned gazebo, a sleek modern art center, or streets cobbled in red brick, each has its unique charm. And all have rail stations named after them. Now that’s DARTable!
The holidays are a time for family – but not all of us are staying home. For many, Thanksgiving means a time to travel to near and far. If you’re taking to the skies this season, DART’s got you covered! Nonstop flight to Beijing? DFW International Airport has it. Hourly departures to Austin or Houston? Dallas Love Field delivers. Hop onboard the Orange Line Service that serves DFW’s Terminal A, and the Love Link (Bus Route 534) whisks you from the Green Line’s Inwood/Love Field Station straight to the airport.
DART your way around town and to the airports for a Happy and Memorable Thanksgiving.
