If your goal is to see as many Dallas sights as you can, this hotel may not be for you. But if you’re looking for a fun family getaway, the Gaylord Texan is the perfect spot. A sprawling property on Lake Grapevine, the Gaylord has just about every activity you could imagine on offer. There’s horseback riding, sailing, boating, bowling, and so much more, plus a giant pool that’s complete with a lazy river and nine-metre slide.
After a day soaking up the sun, tuck in at one of the tasty on-site restaurants, then put the kids to bed and head to the Glass Cactus nightclub, a rowdy and popular spot for the 40-something set. The Gaylord is also a premier location for business meetings and conventions. You may feel a little like you’ve landed in a luxe, Texas-themed Las Vegas resort, but what’s so bad about that?
Grapevine is approximately 30 minutes from Downtown Dallas and a very convenient 6 minutes from the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. The area is more rural than the city of Dallas, offering lots of parks and outdoor activities, not to mention beautiful views of Lake Grapevine
