Dallas airport declared one of America's best by smart travelers

Dallas Love Field has earned a top honor as one of the best airports in the country. The travel hub ranks No. 4 on Travel + Leisure's list of best domestic airports.

T+L's savvy readers determined the winners as part of the magazine's World's Best Awards. Readers rated airports based on criteria such as location/access, check-in/security, restaurants/bars, shopping and design.

It's no surprise that the newly revamped Love Field has charmed travelers: It's brimming with local flavor, including many of Dallas' iconic restaurants, such as Stephan Pyles' Sky Canyon, Cru Wine Bar, Cool River Cafe, Campisi's and Paciugo Gelato. Plus it has a pretty nice selection of public art.

Another Texas airport, Austin-Bergstrom International, claims the No. 5 spot.

Portland International Airport ranks No. 1, followed by Tampa International Airport at No. 2 and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at No. 3.
