Wine charm at Off the Vine. Photo by Darragh Castillo
Cilla Hultin's card reads "Wine Lover!" She represents Off the Vine, one of the fun shopping stops in historic Grapevine. I picked up a blue glass and metal wine charm at there, a tourist-themed shopping bag at a co-op and visited Cowgirl Swag, where Ricky creates crochet embellishments and soda can pop-top collars on fancy T-shirts.
Walk around downtown Grapevine every day of your visit and you will notice something new among the shops, farmers market, museums and of course, wine shops.
Double entendre wine sayings are on towels, T-shirts, coasters, you name it.
The visitors building is in a beautiful building downtown, and representative will refer you to the Settlement to City Museums next door, and of course the glockenspiel that reenacts a would-be train robbery.
Walk around the Great Wolf Lodge and Gaylord Texan for fun off Main Street and make sure to get a view of the lake.
Don't worry, there's plenty of modern shopping, too. Their botanical gardens are about to pop into bloom.
