Grapevine is a community of old town flavor with a variety of new developments just completed or just about to begin. The Historical Main Street in downtown Grapevine dates to the turn of the century. The Grapevine Mills Mall, the second largest outlet shopping mall in the country, is celebrating its second year. Grapevine is also the home to many popular retail stores and restaurants. Grapevine is part of the award winning Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District, recognized for its high SAT scores, new facilities and high percentage of students who go on to colleges and universities.
Grapevine is strategically located between Dallas and Fort Worth and just north of DFW International Airport and south of Grapevine Lake. Major hotels, including the Marriott Conference Center, surround the area. Grapevine offers a variety of housing options, with older homes near the historic district to modern suburban communities, including some properties with lake views. Everyone needs to take a ride on the restored Tarantula Steam Train, as it runs daily between Grapevines Historic District and the Stockyards area in Fort Worth.
