What I love about Grapevine is that everything is very close and convenient. There are so many available stores, activities, restaurants, etc. The people are also very kind. It is a pretty safe city! The schools are very good and there are many ways to get connected with them such as through football games and festivals.

Grapevine has been my home ever since I was a little boy; and every year since then, it has managed to constantly remind me that it is the best city in Texas. I have spent extensive amounts of time between both Ft. Worth and Dallas, yet none has the quality of "home" that Grapevine has. From the moment you step in historic downtown, you know there is something, different, about this quaint little city. There is never a shortlist of things to do, be it have a healthy afternoon at the Rec, visit the historic City Hall, and of course, deep-dive into the Holiday Capitol of Texas when wintertime rolls around. Grapevine encourages you to take life a bit slower, and, to find your home. I think I've found my home with Grapevine.
I love Grapevine's community. Coming from Central Houston, I fell in love with the town's traditions, small-town vibe, lake, and all the people in it who love their town enough to make you love it too. This suburb has great schools, with sports and STEM taking a higher place than other subjects, but great teachers and welcoming families. There are plenty of parks and trails throughout, and the lake is a popular hang-out and work out spot, although the water isn't the cleanest. However, it is very difficult to bike or run beyond the parks, and driving is needed. The food is basic, with some outstanding places, and there is little to do at night unless you go into Dallas or Fort Worth or there is a tourist attraction event occurring.
