As Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz: "There's no place like home." That's why people looking for new homes in North Dallas say one of the strong appeals of Craig Ranch is the community's easy accessibility to the Collin County Regional Airport and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The new The Sam Rayburn Tollway, formerly known as State Highway (SH) 121 makes it easy to get to either airport from Craig Ranch-and easy to get home when you're returning from your trip.
A few things to remember before you head to the airport:
• For domestic air travel, all adult passengers must present some form of government-issued photo identification. A valid driver's license or passport will be sufficient. For international air travel, all passengers including children must have a valid passport.
• Check with your airline in advance to find out what you can pack in your carry-on bags, what must go in your checked luggage, and what is not allowed on the plane at all. Ask how many items you can carry on and what constitutes an "item" (purse, computer bag, backpack, tote bag, small suitcase, etc.).
• Carry enough on board with you to survive for a day or two at your destination just in case your luggage is delayed or lost. Include tickets, important documents, a change of clothes (or at least undergarments), medication, basic toiletries, etc.
• Ask the airline how many bags you can check and how much each one can weigh. Remember that checked bags may be opened for inspection, so either don't lock your bags or use a TSA recognized baggage lock that can be opened by a TSA agent. Other locks may be cut open.
• Wear comfortable clothing, avoid wearing a lot of heavy jewelry or metal items, and be prepared to slip off your shoes when going through security.
