Difference between revisions of "Grapevine"
Revision as of 23:18, 7 August 2008
Grapevine is in Texas.
Just north of DFW airport - therefore easy access by air. Most larger hotels have their own shuttles to/from the airport.
Grapevine is more or less equidistant from both downtown Dallas and Fort Worth. SH 121, 114, 360 and IH 635 all converge in Grapevine (the "funnel").
Right now, the only rail to Grapevine is the "Grapevine Vintage Railroad" that runs between Grapevine and the Fort Worth Stockyards. More of a tourist attraction than anything else, too slow to use as transit.
There are future plans to have commuter rail from DFW airport (through Grapevine) through downtown Fort Worth then ending in SW Fort Worth (Hulen mall area) http://www.sw2nerail.com/
Also, DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) has plans for a new light rail line (orange) through Irving and ending at DFW airport... although it won't travel into Grapevine, it will probably have a park and ride just outside the city limits on the north side of the airport. http://www.dart.org/about/expansion/orangeline.asp
The Gaylord Texan has two nifty shuttles. One loop runs from Gaylord to the Grapevine Mills shopping areas, the other loop runs from Gaylord to the historic part of Main St.
See the entry for wineries above.
Either Dallas or Fort Worth. Camping in a number of State Parks within a two hour drive.
