Weather

In November, the average day-time highs are 60-80 degrees and the average evening temperatures range from as low as 50-60 degrees. Meeting rooms may be cool due to air conditioning. While weather is generally pleasant in November, we recommend you bring an umbrella, as showers can appear unexpectedly.

Airport

If it would take you more than eight hours to drive to this conference, ASGA recommends that you consider flying. If you choose to travel by air, we recommend that you fly into Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) or Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport (DFW).

Dallas Love Field Airport is 7 miles from the Crowne Plaza Dallas Downtown, while Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport is 18 miles away. Flights into Dallas/Ft. Worth usually are less expensive and there are more flight choices.

Taxi

ASGA recommends that you get a rental car if you are flying to this conference. It will be much easier for you to drive to and from the airport, the conference location, attractions, and restaurants.

At the Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport, taxi service is available on the upper level of Terminals A, B, C and E, and on the lower level of Terminal D. For taxi information, please call 972-574-5878. Please note that taxis are expensive and are not convenient.

There are numerous ground transportation options between DFW Airport and surrounding Metroplex-area destinations. You can choose from various companies under taxis, charter buses, courtesy cars, limousines, public transportation, rental cars and shared ride services.

The Crowne Plaza Dallas Downtown offers a free shuttle that will take you to restaurants within a three-mile radius.
