Vacations & Travel - - Tried & Tested -

When fly­ing into Dal­las Fort Worth In­ter­na­tional Air­port next time, fac­tor in a visit to Grapevine, just five min­utes from the air­port. If you need to spend four hours or even a day be­tween flights, there is more than enough to do in this colour­ful town to keep you busy. With daily shoot outs near the Glock­en­spiel Clock­tower, the vin­tage steam train rides, ex­cel­lent shop­ping and at­trac­tions such as Le­goland Dis­cov­ery Cen­ter and Sea Life Grapevine Aquar­ium, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one. Grapevine has two hugely pop­u­lar events, in­clud­ing GrapeFest, on in Septem­ber each year, and Christ­mas. Christ­mas is so big in Grapevine that the Texas Se­nate of­fi­cially de­clared Grapevine the ‘Christ­mas Cap­i­tal of Texas'. There are more than 1400 events in 40 days, with high­lights in­clud­ing rid­ing the North Pole Ex­press train, chill­ing out at the ICE event, or rais­ing a glass on the spe­cial Christ­mas wine trains. Grapevine is home to a vi­brant and grow­ing ur­ban wine trail, so add wine-tast­ing to the ever-grow­ing list. grapevine­tex­a­s­usa.com
