Flights to Dallas

Grab these cheap student flights to Dallas

We’ve got cheap flights to Dallas, and you know you want to go visit the Lone Star State. The stars at night are big and bright there, we hear. Dallas is the third biggest city in Texas, after Houston and San Antonio, so you know there’s got to be a lot going on in this city. Dallas is technically part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, a combination of these two economic powerhouses in northern Texas due to how close the two cities are.

Dallas is broken up into three main areas; Central, South and East Dallas. Central Dallas is mainly known for the Downtown area, and it’s shopping, restaurants and nightlife. South Dallas is home to the Cedars neighborhood, the artistic district that is growing fast, along with a booming bar scene. East Dallas is home to Deep Ellum, a trendy district, along with numerous residential neighborhoods.

Tips on flying to Dallas

After booking your cheap flight to Dallas, you’ll have to figure out exactly what you’re doing there and how you’re going to get around. If this is your first time in the USA, check out our USA Travel Guide.

Dallas Airports: There are quite a few options for airports when booking your Dallas flights, but there are really two main choices. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is the catch-all airport for the area, and most travelers fly into there. It’s the second largest airport in the USA, and the third biggest airport in the world. The other, Dallas Love Field, only has flights that go to the American south, states like Missouri and New Mexico.

Dallas Transportation: When you travel to Dallas, you’ll probably be using the Dallas Area Rapid Transit, or DART. These trains can get you around via four different lines, the Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line, and Orange Line. Dallas is a decent walking city, though, so try to explore on foot as often as possible. Otherwise, you’ll be using a car service most of the time.

Things to do in Dallas: If you time it right, you can visit Dallas at the same time the State Fair of Texas is happening. Like everything in Texas, this state fair is a behemoth, and has been happening every year since 1886. It’s regarded across the USA as the biggest and best State Fair of them all. College football, carnival rides and games, auto shows, and gut-busting fare foods are all part of the experience.

Food in Dallas: The food in Dallas, Texas is legendary at its best. They treat barbeque like it’s not just a craft, but an art, and you can taste the difference in every bite. Nowhere in the USA cook's barbeque like Texas, and nowhere in Texas cook's barbeque quite like Dallas. Besides that, they have incredible and authentic Mexican food, and that classic combination of cuisine cultures, Tex-Mex.
