    Hey peeps,

    Looking for some suggestions for my parents. They are looking for places to stay around Miami Beach and Dallas (or Fort Worth). Dad recons that there is more to do in Fort Worth than Dallas proper.

    Thanks!

    I've been to Dallas a few times for professional conferences for myself or my husband. Have found plenty to do for a few days. More than in Fort Worth. What type of activities or museums do your parents like? Gardens? Shopping?

    Dallas covers a huge area. Some of the places I enjoyed on the last trip (husband working, I was just being a tourist) were away from the city center so required a bit of driving. The light rail system seems pretty well developed. The Interurban Railway Museum in Plano was worth heading out to Plano. Quite a few good restaurants to choose from walking around the town center.

    I would be more interested in hearing about skiing hotels in Dallas and Fort Worth. Flat and warm are not ideal criteria.

    Yes and no . . . can be a lot of ski bags and their owners stuck at the Dallas or Miami airports when Denver International is shut down due to a major snowstorm. ;)
