Top Travel Destinations from DFW Airport to Jefferson Texas

Are you planning a road trip from the Dallas Fort Worth Int. Airport to behold historical monuments, state attractions, and other travel-worthy destinations? Pick up your Avis DFW rental car, grab some snacks, and follow this list of places to visit from Dallas to Jefferson Texas.

Terrell

The historic railroad town of Terrell is a fascinating stop on the way to Jefferson City. Begin your journey on the state highway, move onto I-30 East to US-80 E in Kaufman County to check out some beautifully immaculate Victorian architecture and homes built in the Revival era. Wander through the town’s former Carnegie Library, now known as the Terrell Heritage Museum, for exhibits dedicated to the area’s history. Visit the museum within the Flying School, take a guided tour of the town, stroll through the downtown shopping district for a souvenir, and more. Terrell is less than 60 miles from the DFW airport and is a truly beautiful Texas find.

Longview

Longview is a fantastic road trip stop overflowing with places to visit and things to do. Stop in at the city’s many cultural attractions, from the Longview Museum of Fine Arts to the Longview World of Wonders children’s museum. Pick up your lunch from Jucy's Hamburgers—a local favorite—and have a picnic at one of the city’s many green parks. Attend a festival, go laser tagging at Top Fun, check out the Old Fire Station 3 built in 1936, and the list goes on and on.

Longview is only 151 miles (roughly two and a half hours) away from the Dallas Fort Worth Int. Airport. Take I-20 East for a day of family fun.

Jefferson

Jefferson is only about three hours from Dallas and is worth every minute of the drive. Come to this enchanting city for an abundance of Texan history in the Piney Woods region—you’ll truly feel as if you’re in a different time.

The first step to a successful road trip to Jefferson is to reserve a room at one of the town’s many historic bed and breakfast inns. If you thought you’d stay at a typical hotel during your time here, you may want to reconsider. Jefferson is known as the bed and breakfast capital of the U.S., and for good reason. Find a local B&B that suits your fancy for an unforgettable experience.

Dine at Riverport Barbeque on 201 N Polk St or the Austin Street Bistro, and take a stroll through this intriguing town. Tour some of the oldest and most beautifully preserved homes in the state, browse several different antique shops full of treasures and relics, visit the Gone With the Wind Museum, and take a boat tour of the Big Cypress Bayou.
