Average Ft Worth Weather
Summer is hot, as you can imagine. Usually, the summer brings with it severe thunderstorms and oftentimes tornadoes. It doesn't get extremely cold in the winters, although warm clothing is still suggested during this time of year. Spring and fall display moderate temperatures, although late spring, it starts heating up quite a bit.
Like most major cities, Dallas is connected by a dozen or so major highways, making it easy to get to various parts of the city. However, don't try maneuvering your way around during rush hour - a terrible time for driving. It's more convenient to have your own car in Dallas, whether your's or a rental car. As far as public transportation, this isn't the most efficient. Greyhound buses travel between Dallas and surrounding cities, including Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, San Antonion and El Paso.
DART is the local public transportation system. It's served by both buses and rail trains that hit downtown Dallas and some outlying areas. And, of course, there are always big yellow taxis.
Dallas is a reasonable place to visit, as far as costs. Of course there are some places that are more extravagant than others, but for the most part, it won't break the bank.
