Gaylord Texas style

Summer Adventures at Gaylord Texan are full of Texas pride.  The Lone Star is shining bright with Texas-sized cowboy boots, Adirondack chair, checkers game and cowboys. Just make sure you are on the lookout for the “golden cowboy”. He might just surprise you. Saturday night includes a Glow Party followed by a live comedy show in the atrium complete with gunfighters and salon girls.

This year you can also “rent” bike to ride around Lake Grapevine, Historic Downtown Grapevine or around the property. Make sure you visit the concierge to “check-out” board games for some memorable family fun. There is a great selection of games to choose from.  While you are at the concierge desk grab a map of the property to look for the Deep in the HeART of Texas art. Take a tour around the atrium to look for the wonderful art by local arts. You will find sculptures, glass art, paintings and more. Along with the art you will find plaques with information regarding the artist. Check it out!

Grab a drink and relax a the Silver Bar while listening to soothing sounds of live piano music daily. They also offer Happy Hours specials of Texas whiskeys. If you enjoy cocktails more, then the Texas Station Patio is your evening destination with Texas themed entertainment. These are not your only live music options. Take the shuttle to the Glass Cactus to dance the night away or enjoy some drinks on the patio overlooking Lake Grapevine.

These are just a few of the fun adventures awaiting you at the Gaylord Texan this summer. Come back soon, there is plenty more to discover.


Combining my love of writing and live theater I began publishing with in 2009. Since that time I have expanded my contributions to numerous forms of live entertainment, film and much more. In July of 2016 shut down their website. I decided to continue exploring and sharing my adventures through my own blogging site. Becoming a resource for my audience seeking entertainment options in the DFW area is a top priority.
