As one of Dallas' larger suburbs, Carrollton, Texas makes a great base when taking a vacation in the Metroplex area. The town began to develop in the 19th century and thrived due to the railroad. As Dallas grew to the north, Carrollton eventually became a suburb of the larger city. It retains its own identity however, and is a quieter alternative to the hustle and bustle of Dallas. Hotels in Carrollton TX are close to all the major places in the area, particularly the airport.
Carrollton is 16 miles northeast of Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, and the best way to get there is by taxi or rental car. You can also take the DART public transport system, but this requires changes in Dallas. After arriving in Carrollton, be sure to take a walk around the Historic Downtown Square, a lovely area with unique boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Sandy Lake Amusement Park has a retro feel, with classic rides such as bumper cars and a merry-go-round, as well as train, boat, and pony rides, making it a great day out for all the family. To explore the rest of the area, look into Carrollton rental cars and hit the road—the Metroplex area is vast and packed with things to see and do. Whatever you're into, you'll find it here, from the toe-tappin' cowboy vibe of Fort Worth to the city-slicking glitz of Dallas, and everything in between. If you stay in one of the motels in Carrollton TX, you'll have easy access to it all.
