Grapevine (Texas)Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in the state of Texas. It is known as the Christmas Capital of Texas.
Just north of Dallas/Fort Worth 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").
There are frequent TEXRail trains between Fort Worth and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, operated by Trinity Metro. For a more touristic experience, the Grapevine Vintage Railroad runs historic trains between Grapevine and nearby destinations.
