Getting to these Dallas festivals is a breeze

If you live in Dallas, it’s great for “staycations,” and if you’re visiting, you can get around to all the major sites. This fall, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has stops at some of the best fall festivals in the area. You won’t have to worry about paying for parking or fighting traffic.
