Marilyn JonesGrapevine, Texas, is just north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport; a gem in an otherwise rush-rush world. Along Main Street, charming shops and family-owned restaurants welcome visitors like family. Christmas carols are dancing on a winter breeze and old-fashioned decorations are stretched over the street.

At one end of the street is Grapevine Vintage Railroad that is transformed during the holidays into the North Pole Express. On the journey Mrs. Claus talks to each child and presents them with a silver bell to ring for Santa Claus just before arriving at the North Pole where it’s snowing!

Near the train depot is Vetro Glassblowing Studio & Gallery where visitors can create their very own ornament with the help of glass artisans.
