Rent a car, buy a freeway map and get familiar with it. The road system is a numerical soup of 35E, 35W, 20, 30, 45 (a little of it), 360, 820, 121, 114, 183, 635, the Tollway, the Turnpike and more! If you don't have the general idea of what you need, it's really easy to end up halfway across three cities.

Major tourist attractions:
Dealy Plaza/6th Floor Museum: http://www.jfk.org
Dallas Museum of Art: http://www.dallasmuseumofart.org
Fort Worth Zoo: http://www.fortworthzoo.org
Dallas World Aquarium: http://www.dwazoo.com/d
Six Flags over Texas: http://www.sixflags.com/parks/overtexas/index.asp
Fort Worth Stockyards: http://www.fortworthstockyards.org

Seasonal attractions include the State Fair of Texas (late Sept. - early Oct.).

Hockey-related things include:
Dallas Stars (NHL): http://www.dallasstars.com
They play at the American Airlines Center: http://www.americanairlinescenter.com
They practice (usually open practice with autographs available afterwards) in Frisco at: http://www.drpepperstarcenter.com
Texas Tornado (NAHL): http://texastornado.pointstreaksites.com
Allen Americans (CHL): http://www.allenamericans.com
Texas Brahmas (CHL): http://www.brahmas.com

Major airports include:
DFW International: http://www.dfwairport.com
DFW is located about 25 minutes away from downtown Dallas and Forth Worth (each a different direction). Has most of the major carriers and big international flights. Big American Airlines hub. Tends to be more expensive to fly into.
Dallas Love Field: http://www.dallas-lovefield.com
Smaller regional airport about 10 minutes away from downtown Dallas, much further away from Fort Worth. Has United and Southwest. Southwest flights can be very cheap depending on where you fly from. Older than DFW, less airport-type amenities in the direct vicinity.
