Boredom had officially set in this past Sunday and I needed to get out of the apartment-FAST. It was rainy and I wanted to be out celebrating that my face was no longer going to be melting when I stepped outside. So we went to explore Historic Downtown Grapevine and it didn’t disappoint. It just feels like you are taking a step back in time and it’s so…slow, but in the best way. Grapevine is just overflowing with history and culture. We loved it! There are some shops and things that we missed since it was a Sunday so we will definitely be going back just to see the glassblowing at Vetro Glassblowing.

Main Street Bistro & Bakery

We walked and stopped in a few more shops, even bought some homemade soap at A Hole In The Wall, which smells amazing and is made with all natural ingredients. Then, you guessed it-It started raining again. And what does rain call for? Hot tea! Their pastries & quiches looked divine but I was a good girl and only had tea. We sat in the bakery but they have a bistro next door that looks like something you would find in New York. Lunch there is on my list for next time.

Grapevine Vintage Railroad & The Cotton Belt Route

One of the biggest attractions that pulls tourists to Grapevine is the railroad that has been preserved so well. The train is still in operation and you can ride it either to the Fort Worth Stockyards or depart from the Stockyards and travel along the Trinity River. They also offer many special events like the North Pole Express around Christmas time and Christmas Wine Trains for adults that feature a different local winery every ride. I always have a countdown to Christmas going on but even more so now-I can’t wait to come visit and see all the lights. Be sure to check the train schedule, purchase tickets  and read more about the railroad’s history here.

Mi Dia-From Scratch

Literally the ONLY pic I got of our awesome meal because I was SO HUNGRY!!! And I had to be reminded to take this one…but just in case you were wondering, this is table side guacamole. AKA Heaven in a bowl.

To wrap up our awesome day we stopped to have dinner at Mi Dia. I was craving chips & salsa and this place was highly recommended on Zomato. (You can click on the above box to see reviews and other information.) In case you’re not from Texas you should know that we judge the whole restaurant based on its chips & salsa. This salsa was served in a yin-yang style of red & green versions-it passed with flying colors. The guacamole was also a must-order once we walked in and saw how many tables were ordering it. It was so fresh and definitely hit the spot. Our server was also great and very attentive. Overall-it was an amazing experience and you should go eat some guac, bottom line.

We will most definitely be back to Grapevine, probably a lot more times. Go and see and taste and explore this awesome historic city!
