Texas embraces its status as the largest continental state in many ways, and the open road is certainly among its grandest landmarks. Some of the world’s most iconic cities are circled in coastline and others are hemmed in with rivers and canyons. But not Dallas. The Big D is bold and beautiful with a glittering skyline, a thriving cultural hub, and an endless horizon. When you rent a car in Dallas, that horizon is yours for the chasing, from crosstown sightseeing to scenic day trips. Browse our Dallas rental car deals and plan your Lone Star-sized getaway.
Where to Hang Your Hat in Dallas
When you aren’t cruising around Central Texas in a convenient Dallas rental car, you’ll need somewhere to hang your hat and relax. Consider these guest-loved hotels as you book your vacation:
Omni Dallas Hotel: Located right in the heart of downtown Dallas, this Omni is close to Pioneer Plaza and Dallas Convention Center. If you’re planning your trip around a business conference, carve out some quiet time and pamper yourself at the full-service spa or wander through nearby art galleries. Self-parking and valets are available for your car while you relax.
Hyatt Regency Dallas: On the west side of downtown, within earshot of Trinity River, the Hyatt Regency is within walking distance to Reunion Tower and a short drive to the Dallas Holocaust Museum. Let the history surround you and return to the comfort of a pillowtop bed and Texan cuisine at the three hotel restaurants.
Hyatt Regency DFW: If a convenient commute is your top priority, you won’t have to trade the proximity you need for the comfort you want. This Hyatt Regency is located adjacent to the airport and amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a sauna, and two restaurants. Long-term and valet parking are available.
Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine: When only rustic luxury will do for your trip to Texas, stay at the Great Wolf Lodge in nearby Grapevine, just 22 miles northwest of Dallas. You’ll be a short drive from Grapevine Lake and Cowboys Golf Course, but you may never want to leave your whimsical cabin-inspired accommodation or the lodge’s full-service spa.
From Big City to the Open Road
Located about 23 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, the DFW International Airport is a major hub for Southwestern travel. Public transit is limited beyond the city center, making Dallas a great place to explore with four wheels. Once you arrive, gather your belongings for the trip of a lifetime and catch the shuttle to pick up your rental car in Dallas. Whether you’re looking for a classic car to carry you to the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center or a road trip-ready SUV, book beautiful, safe, and state-of-the-art vehicles for any itinerary right here.
If we had you at “endless horizon,” then grab your GPS and pack a picnic of the city’s signature smoky and saucy barbecue brisket and a helping of potato salad. You’ll want sustenance for the 218-mile drive to Hamilton Pool, a natural formation south of Dallas. During the warmer months, this nature preserve is open for swimming and in the cooler months, the area is a starkly stunning setting for hiking.
