Travel

Below are some tips for those of you joining us from out of town. We’ll continue to add more to this page, but here’s some starter info:

Quick Dictionary

  • DFW = Dallas/Fort Worth
  • The Metroplex = DFW

Venue

Tarrant Community College – South Campus (Rotunda Building)
5301 Campus Drive
Fort Worth, TX 76119



* Note for out-of-towners: There are several Tarrant County College locations around the metroplex – we’re meeting at the South Campus.

Airports

There are two main airports in the DFW area:

  • Dallas/Fort Worth airport (DFW) – this airport is huge and likely to have the best flight options. It’s also a hub for American Airlines.
  • Dallas Love Field (DAL) – this is a hub for Southwest Airlines, so if you can fly Southwest, you might get a better price flying in here. Slightly less convenient location, but the metroplex is huge, so what’s 10 more miles? 🙂

You can rent a car easily enough from either airport. Due to the size of area and lack of great public transit options, renting a car (or riding with a friend) is the best way to go.

Hotels

The WordCamp venue is located in Fort Worth, about 30 minutes from the airport. We recommend staying near downtown Fort Worth or the University area. Note: This weekend is a home game for TCU/OU so book your accommodations sooner rather than later.
