Day 2 – Historic Downtown Grapevine Tour – Plus Free Time in Downtown Grapevine – Grapevine Wine Trail – Texas Star Dinner Theater
After breakfast, meet your local guide for a tour of Historic Downtown Grapevine. See over 50 buildings and their architectural descriptions as well as stories, events and people who contributed to the development of Grapevine.

Then at the stroke of Noon, gather on Main Street at the Grapevine Glockenspiel Clock Tower and see the two larger-than-life, 9-foot tall Glockenspiel characters, known as the Would-Be Train Robbers. Approximately 75 feet above ground, these figures emerge from the Tower each day to commence what each believes to be the perfect heist. Just as glockenspiels in Europe are rooted in history, Grapevine’s Clock Tower figures reflect the Western lore that many visitors from outside Texas find interesting and entertaining.
The afternoon features Grapevine’s Urban Wine Trail with stops at least two wineries. Grapevine is home to a vibrant and growing urban wine trail which features daily wine tastings and special events throughout the year. From strong and bold Texas red wines to crisp and clean Texas white wines, you’ll find a variety of favorite taste sensations.
Texas is the fifth largest wine-producing state in the U.S., and Grapevine has served as a trendsetter in wine culture and a leader in the Texas wine industry with award-winning festivals celebrating the fruit of the vine as well as wineries and winemakers for more than 25 years.
This evening, enjoy a Murder Mystery at the Texas Star Dinner Theater. A night you won’t forget complete with a delicious dinner and dessert, a well-stocked cash bar, and a side-splitting show. Immerse yourself in an award-winning 90-minute murder mystery dinner theater performance set in the 1880s of the wild west of Texas. Test your investigation skills and solve the murder mystery. Take photos with the cast after the show to round out a great night of fun! (B,D)
