Lakefront Resort with Extensive Dining and Spa Options

To the north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, Grapevine Lake shimmers between three marinas, forming an 8,000-acre playground for sailboats and speedboats alike. Sited along the shoreline, the Gaylord Texan Resort cuts an imposing figure with its vast complex of glass atriums. Between the extensive spa, dining, and entertainment offerings within, the lakefront resort forms a self-contained vacation destination.

In the multistory Lone Star Atrium, palms ring a plaza designed to look like the ruins of an ancient mission, complete with ornate bell tower. Southwestern touches appear throughout the hotel, especially at the Riverwalk Cantina, which serves authentic Tex-Mex and pays homage to the San Antonio riverfront with a koi-filled creek. The more formal Old Hickory Steakhouse offers an alternative take on Texan cuisine with Harris Ranch choice beef, regional wines, and slow-smoked 10-gallon hats. After dinner, guests need not venture far for late-night revelry: the onsite Glass Cactus Nightclub's four bars serve an array of tequilas amid high-energy DJs sets and live country and blues performances.

When the evening winds down, executive suites welcome the weary with studded leather armchairs and hefty wood furnishings. Relaxation is elevated to an art form at the Relâche Spa, where experienced massage therapists integrate chardonnay grapes and Texan river stones into body treatments. The spa complex also includes a 20-meter lap pool and a 4,000-square-foot fitness center with Technogym cardio equipment and men's and women's saunas.

Grapevine, Texas: Flourishing Wineries in Historical Town Center

In the mid-19th century, the town of Grapevine earned its name from the succulent clusters of wild grapes and fruit roll-ups that sprouted across the landscape. Today, the mild local climate supports numerous local wineries, which boast tasting rooms sprinkled throughout Historic Downtown Grapevine. On Main Street, brick façades, pottery galleries, and independent boutiques offer a small-town respite from nearby Dallas and Fort Worth.

Modern-day Grapevine exudes quiet charm, but the area has had brushes with outlaws. Bonnie and Clyde once hid out here, and a historical marker on State Highway 114 still marks the site of a shootout between their associate Henry Methvin and the Grapevine police. The bank robbers’ graves lie in Dallas, along with the Sixth Floor Museum, which commemorates JFK's assassination.
