Historic Downtown Grapevine

Downtown Grapevine is a walkable preserved historic area home to winery tasting rooms, the Grapevine Vintage Railroad, the Palace Arts Center, the Grapevine Glockenspiel Clock Tower, one-of-a-kind shops, live entertainment venues, restaurants, and art galleries.

What is the best spot for walking with your dog in your destination?

Lake Grapevine

Lake Grapevine, home to over 8,000 acres of outdoor recreation, is the perfect place for pet lovers and pets to explore the great outdoors.

With dog-friendly accommodations and restaurants, canine-welcoming cafes, dog parks and even pet-friendly events and festivals, Grapevine is the perfect destination for pet owners.
