U.S. News 

Air travelers in Denver are treated to a solar-powered, covered parking lot, mini-golf, a nearby wildlife refuge and two on-campus commuter rail lines. In Dallas-Fort Worth, local authorities recently approved plans for a six-story, extended-stay hotel on an existing 32-acre, mixed-use commercial space that already has offices, restaurants and retail shops. In Pittsburgh, private businesses have invested several hundred million dollars for manufacturing, industrial, office and warehouse space on airport property – and aggressive efforts to bring more direct flights to Pittsburgh International Airport are attracting new types of business to this former steel town.
