Before settlement in 1850, this location on the Blackland Prairie was the site of important negotiations between Native Americans and Gen. Sam Houston, which led to the signing of the Treaty of Birds Fort and the opening of this North Texas settlement. The community was named for the wild mustang grapes that grew throughout the area.
This city is situated between Dallas and Fort Worth. In Historic Downtown Grapevine, many of the buildings date back to the early 1900s and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors enjoy shopping, winery tasting rooms, galleries, more than 200 restaurants and several luxury hotels. Several golf courses and beautiful Lake Grapevine offer many outdoor recreation options.
Grapevine offers many award-winning festivals and events. The Grape Fest celebration is held the second weekend in September.
