Gaylord Texan - Grapevine

I see several posts on the Gaylord that are a few years old - has anyone been there in the last year and can provide an update.

I am planning a surprise 40th bday trip in Dec.for my boyfriend - we have tickets for Sunday's Cowboys vs Redskins game - and I thought it would be nice to see Grapevine this trip (we've been out before and stayed in Downtown Dallas & in Arlington) and the Gaylord appears to be the special touch for a celebration weekend - any thoughts or insites greatly appreciated!

Figure in having highway construction north of DFW Airport. Its not that bad just something to be aware of. Here's a link to the updated lane closures.

Thanks - i'm really unsure - I have the tickets for the Cowboys game on Sunday - just not sure where to stay and what to do if we fly in on Thursday.

PS - we are from Pennsylvania (Eagles country) - and it's such a thrill for us to be in Texas and close to Cowboys fans!! We'd like to experience more of the area - we hace toured the new, amazing stadium.

Thanks for your help

Maybe check out Fort Worth. The downtown , Sundance Square, has lots to offer as far as bars/restaurants/live music in a walkable area and the Stockyards is great for music and eating as well. There are a number of good hotel deals this weekend- take a look at Expedia for some ideas. You will definitely get a Texas experience!

I see the Cowboys game with the Redskins is Dec 19th. I know the Gaylord is spectacular during the Christmas season... You won't miss out there. Downtown Grapevine is cool with lots of shops and things going on, take the old train to the stockyards in Ft. Worth and lots of good restaurants in the area. I don't think you can go wrong staying in this area. Just a little road construction but if you use your GPS on your phone you'll miss it.

Here is the Grapevine Convention and Visitor website

Another cool place is the Southlake Town Center... Great shopping and Restaurants... http://southlaketownsquare.com/

Since you are big football fans. The Texas High School Championship games are being played at Cowboy Stadium on Dec 18. 4Pm and 8PM for the two 5A games which is the highest classification in Texas. One of the games last year went into overtime... Great football !! and great history of rivalries .
