The whole state of Texas is rich in history. Maybe no place more so than Grapevine, a suburb of Dallas just northeast of the metro area, with the bustling Dallas-Fort Worth Airport on the city’s southwest side. Settled in 1843, Grapevine was the site of a peace and friendship treaty between General Sam Houston and the Republic of Texas, and representatives of 10 American Indian nations. The treaty resulted in the first settlers to the area, and the rest, so to speak, is history.
The Grapevine of today is a thriving center of commerce and culture. Approximately 50,000 Texans call Grapevine home, while visitors pump dollars into the local economy year-round because of the area’s attractions and accommodations. At the heart of it all is the city’s historic downtown, and of course, Lake Grapevine.
Grapevine is also an area known for some highly-rated schools as a part of the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District. Some of the highlights include Heritage, Grapevine, and Dove Elementary, Cross Timbers Middle School and Grapevine High School.
One of the best things about Grapevine is your proximity to well, almost everything! Grapevine Mills Mall offers all the style you could want in 1.6 million sq. ft. of shopping space. While you’re shopping, the kids can visit Lego Land or the Sea Life Exhibit, and then everyone can settle in for a meal at one of Grapevine’s many dining spots.
And don’t forget Christmas. Grapevine calls itself The Christmas Capital of Texas. If you’ve never seen it before, you won’t be disappointed. The Gaylord Texas resort offers a yearly ice exhibit showcasing sculptors’ enormous displays – all made out of ice!
The Grapevine Vintage Railroad features The North Pole Express, where the kids can peek at Santa and his elves. Downtown Grapevine is filled with Christmas lights and carolers sure to fill your heart with Christmas joy.
