Grapevine, Texas

Grapevine, Texas is truly an amazing town located in the middle of Dallas/Ft. Worth. There are many fun things to do, especially on Main Street which has kept its style and old feel reminiscent of what the town was like 75 years ago. It is easy to find a parking spot and the get out on foot to see many of the small shops and restaurants located in the middle of town. Or you can catch the “Tarantula Train” for a great ride to the west towards Ft. Worth.

Most people don’t know that Texas is the 5th largest wine producing state in the U.S. and “GrapeFest”, held each September is the largest wine festival in the Southwest. Grapevine is the home to over a dozen wineries and tasting rooms, most located near the downtown area.

There has been a strict building code which has made even the new buildings (like the one above) seem old and not too out of place with the old grain elevator and train tracks located across the street. It’s truly a cool place and one you should explore.
