There really are 1400 reasons to visit Grapevine, TX this holiday season. This Christmas capital of Texas has 1400 holiday events in a 40 day period. That comes out to 35 events every. single. day. This is something that I really want to experience and I hope that I’m able to attend for a few days this holiday season.
Grapevine, Texas is a historic town strategically located between Dallas and Fort Worth. It is full of charming shops, delectable restaurants, vibrant wineries, and attractions galore. Grapevine is also home to two of my favorite resorts Gaylord and Great Wolf Lodge. In addition, there are many other accommodations available to fit every budget.
Since everything is bigger in Texas you know that a town designated as the Christmas capital of the state is going to go big. Starting November 25 millions of lights transform historic Grapevine into a holiday mecca filled wonder and awe. There are too many holiday events to list here, but I’m going to share my absolute favorite and let you decide if you think Grapevine is the perfect place to spend the holidays.
