What is a reliable website to download texture packs from? Also, how do you import the texture packs into an offline world in Minecraft?

The first part of your question is a bit off topic (in the realm of shopping recommendations), but one of the best places to start is probably the Minecraft forums. – MBraedley May 19 '13 at 0:49
The Texture Pack article at Minecraft Wiki answers both your questions. I'm obliged to downvote your question for lacking evidence of research. – SevenSidedDie May 19 '13 at 1:30

Texture packs go in your texture pack folder. There are two ways to get to this on a Windows machine:

Open up Minecraft and go to Options > Texture Packs > Open texture pack folder


Press Win+R, type in %appdata% and click OK, then open the .minecraft folder (this is usually, but not always, at the top of the list). Then open the texturepacks folder.

Simply put the file you downloaded in this folder and select it in-game from the Texture Packs menu.

As for where to download them, I'd suggest starting at the official forums texture packs section, or downloading the Curse client and getting them through that.
