Dallas Ramps Up Summer Travel Options
DALLAS – There are more reasons than ever to stay close to Dallas to enjoy world-class attractions and new additions to the city’s entertainment mix downtown and beyond. Vacationers choosing to leave the city will notice significant changes at the two major airports, DFW International and Love Field. Each has undergone significant renovations, particularly Love Field, which recently unveiled a $519 million makeover that has been drawing rave reviews.
The KRLD 1080 AM “Pulse of the City” radio show, sponsored by the Dallas law firm Munck Wilson Mandala, devoted its most recent broadcast to summer travel season in Dallas.
The Love Field improvements coincide with Dallas-based Southwest Airlines’ expanded services, the phasing out of Wright Amendment flight restrictions, and the airline’s high-profile acquisition of AirTran.
“Pulse of the City” guests also noted that bus travel has made a surprising comeback as companies such as Dallas-based Greyhound Lines Inc. and upstart MegaBus offer modern and spacious vehicles, convenient service and attractive prices. Greyhound Marketing Director Kim Plaskett said the industry is experiencing significant interest from travelers, particularly those traveling 450 miles or less.
Thanks to dozens of new attractions and the expansion of the city’s DART light rail system, Dallas has one of the strongest offerings ever for those staying close to home. Downtown Dallas is set with a full calendar of summer events, including the popular Moonlight Movie Series at the Main Street Garden, as well as the Party in the Park and Third Thursdays Music Night at Klyde Warren Park.
“Pulse of the City” is a weekly roundtable radio program devoted to current events with a special focus on issues and opportunities associated with North Texas and Downtown Dallas. Moderated by CBS/KRLD assistant news director Matt Thomas joined by John Crawford, President and CEO of Downtown Dallas Inc., the weekly KRLD 1080 AM program is broadcast Sundays at 9 a.m. and can be heard on demand at http://www.munckwilson.com/media-center/pulse-of-the-city or http://dfw.cbslocal.com/category/watch-listen/pulse-of-the-city/.
