    I'm going to be going to the cowboys broncos game and was wondering what the best plan of action would be as far as where to get a hotel....... Will be traveling with two other friends..... Are we better staying close to the airport or hotel?..... Not sure if we should rent a car or grab cabs either...... Any info is greatly appreciated

    How many days are you here for? I would for sure get a rental car and just pick a hotel close to the airport. It's only about 15 miles from the stadium.(If you are flying into DFW) or 23 miles from lovefield. I would advise flying into DFW if you can. Plus after the game you will be right by the airport.

    Get a hotel with a free shuttle to the game. You'll thank me later.

    Ive done without a rental and with a rental. Its cheaper to use a rental. Well at least it was for me because i like to see wverything Dallas has to offer. I dont know if people that live in texas know how good traffic is after a game but traffic isnt bad at all some people might think so but to me it doesnt seem bad. But id take the shuttle if your hotel provides a shuttle to the game. Id stay at a hotel closer to Dallas/ Airport. Seems to me that theres more going one in the area than there is in Arlington. If your there for only 1 day or something stay closer to the stadium. That way you can take in what your actually there for which is to see the stadium and the cowboys. Take a tour of the stadium. take advantage by shopping in stores in the area because they have a ton of Dallas Cowboys stuff. Its always soooo cool to walk into a walmart and just see a ton of dallas cowboys stuff for sale. Im used to seeing Packers stuff only!.

    Let me ask a question to you guys from texas. Im coming down for the packer vs cowboys game this year. Im looking for 1. A Honky Tonk to learn how to line dance. And 2 REAL texas BBQ. I know there are chain stores everywhere and Mexiacan food to die for. Ive had good steak in dallas but i feel like that isnt really a good representation for local BBQ places

    I know there is a big place in Fort Worth called the Stage Coach to dance.
    You would have to go to their site to find out about line dancing.

    I have been told, after I made the mistake of doing it, guys don't line dance.

    There was a thread a few months back about BBQ.
    Google it - best BBQ in Texas. There are a few places in the Metroplex that will qualify - and people here have inside knowledge.

    I have been to 2 games from New York. The first time i booked a room at "dfw hotel and conference center" mistake. The most AWFUL hotel ive ever been to. So i relocated to springhill suites in las colinas. Great spot. The 2nd time i booked at the omni park west. Amazing hotel. Was for the bears game. In fact i went down for breakfast one morning only to run into jerry jones at the hotel restaurant sitting right behind me. Omni park west was just incredible in every aspect. I did not rent a car the first tome. BIG mistake. Second time was golden.

    Thank you for this topic. I'll be going to this game as well and its my first time in Dallas and first game at a Cowboys stadium (have gone to games against Giants, and Philly).

    I may be traveling solo because friends cant come up with the money. If this is the case, I won't arrive until Friday night but was curious about the hotels and such as well.

    I definitely advise renting a car either way but still look for that hotel with a free shuttle. Since your flying you won't be tailgating unless you join someone's. Rent a car just to drive around Dallas and get the shuttle to and from the game because you don't want to be driving in it.

    I would advise using Star Sports Tours. That's the best way to go.

    Stay away from Maximum Sports.

    If he doesn't want to take a chance on being ripped off, then yes... this again.

    I spent $20 and parked at the baseball stadium. The walk was a breeze. It helps having thousands of people walking in at the same time.

    I'm busy with work until December, so the only game I can attend is against the Packers. How difficult do you think it will be to grab a pair on Ticketmaster this Friday?
