By  | 

In no particular order, the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine is part of our five-part series on splurge-worthy Texas vacation stays. But in short order, you’ll see why. Proving that everything truly is bigger in Texas, this resort’s nine-story atrium is temperature-controlled and filled with more than four acres of restaurants and shops, indoor gardens, and even its own river!

Eat at your choice of dining selections, enjoy a stroll along the river or listen to a Mariachi band that’s doing the very same. Look out over lush indoor landscaping and waterfalls, similar to the San Antonio River Walk, only with the added bonus of air conditioning! The resort also features a 10-acre outdoor lazy river and pool complex called Paradise Springs where your children can try their hand at a 25-foot-long zip line, a 27-foot-tall waterslide, and a 600-foot-long lazy river. There’s also an outdoor game pavilion housing bocce ball, shuffleboard, croquet, and a campfire pit.

In the summer months, Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center hosts SummerFest, where families can partake in a number of fun-filled events which are scheduled through Labor Day. Their free activities include fireworks on Friday nights, fireside ghost stories, and poolside movie nights. There are also other activities on-site which are available for a fee. Moms and Dads might enjoy the Relâche Spa & Salon will full services that are so relaxing you just might book an appointment per day, and a full-service fitness facility to help you maintain your physique. There’s also an on-site night club where parents can dance the night away (provided the little ones have appropriate care.) The Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine is a wonderful place to get away, enjoy a summer vacation together, and do so as a family in the great state of Texas!
