Grapevine is located minutes from DFW Airport, and only 30-45 minutes from Dallas and Fort Worth. In 2018 Grapevine will become a stop on the commuter rail, allowing for even easier travel to Fort Worth. If you enjoy spending time outdoors, then you will find lots to do in Grap ...Read
evine. There are lots of well maintained trails, parks, and of course there is the Grapevine lake that allows for kayaking and water skiing. There is also a great community center that offers lots of classes and activities. The Grapevine police department does a great job keeping the area, especially downtown, safe. The downtown has plenty of little restaurants and wine bars and you can listen to live music every night. A couple things to be aware of: The cost of living (rent and home prices!) is rising very quickly. Depending where you live you may be in the DFW flight path and this can result in disruptive aircraft noise that takes some getting used to. Not enough bike lanes.

I have lived in Grapevine for the past ten years. The median price for a home is in the $260's and to rent at $1,200. The Grapevine community offers something for everyone, and when one wishes to get away, the Dallas Fort Worth airport is five minutes away. Some of my favorite at ...Read
tractions include the Great Wolf Lodge which is an indoor water park which comes in handing when the Texas summer becomes too bearable. Second, the Sea Life Grapevine Aquarium offers the patron a look at over 5,000 sea creatures. Lastly, when one wants to simply get away from it all, the Elements Spa provides a relaxing atmosphere to rid of your daily stress.
The Grapevine nightlife has a variety of options including the Glass Cactus, Love and War in Texas, and the Palace Arts Center. The Glass Cactus sits at the Gaylord Resort and features country and western acts with dancing including a lakeside view. At Love and War in Texas, one can enjoy the local music and if hungry, enjoy the multiple offerings of wild game. The Palace Arts Center built in the 1930s offers live entertainment and classic movies throughout the week.
Finding a variety of food is no issue in Grapevine. Personal favorites of mine are the Café Italia, Old Hickory, and Weinberger's Delicatessen. Yet Grapevine is well known for its wine, so one should make a point to set aside time to visit the multitude of wineries in the area. I recommend taking the time to tour the Delaney Vineyards and Homestead Winery. If the outdoors is your thing, Lake Grapevine has everything one would need if interested in sailing, water skiing, fishing, and camping. Finally, most enjoy shopping periodically, and the Grapevine Mills Mall has over 1,600 square foot of stores which includes the Bass Pro Shop.
