  • Go Golfing - Grapevine has two fantastic golf courses - Grapevine Municipal is a city owned course that has 27 holes that are a lot of fun, somewhat challenging, in very good condition, and a real bargain.

  • Hit The Trails - the North Shore Trail is fantastic as it follows the lake shoreline, goes up and down the hills, in and out of the trees, and even has the perfect place to stop for a cold drink, lunch on the lake, and good music - . North Shore Trail is a popular hiking and challenging mountain biking trail.

  • Enjoy The Lake - Lake Grapevine is perfect for boating, cruising, fishing, boarding, or just enjoying a day on the water.
  • Go Camping -  on Lake Grapevine is one of the best RV parks in Texas - clean, friendly service, sites on the water, and more. They also have cabins that sleep 2 to 6 people if you want to be on the water and don't have an RV - an excellent alternative to a boring hotel room!

We love the Chicken Fried Chicken, frozen margaritas, and live country music at Love & War in Texas; Big Fish for seafood; and the Back Porch for live music. For the younger hip crowd, the Glass Cactus at the Gaylord Hotel is the place to drink, dance, and socialize.
