From April through October, the Farmers Market of Grapevine is a completely accessible outdoor farmers market. This local gem prides itself on offering organic foods brought to the public by local Texas farmers. Offering a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and vendors of all kinds, your diet will undoubtedly become a whole lot more colorful. We highly recommend the tamales, considering that they’re the best in the state.

You don’t need to convince us to spend the day under the sun at Murrell Park. Grab the family, and explore all the wonders that this lakeside park has to offer. The park is free to enter and filled with endless activities. Pack a picnic, and sit by the lakeside with your friends or put on your hiking shoes, and explore one of the waterside trails. If you really want to beat the heat, you can take a dip in one of the lake’s swimming areas after you’ve finished fishing. The options are yours.

We prefer to reserve this activity for those really hot Texas days. This new entertainment craze allows you to plop the family down in one of their ultra-plush recliners and have your meal brought straight to you. A full menu, complete with cocktails, is the only way to enhance this already ideal set-up. This unique option is is most definitely our preferred method for staying up to date with this summer’s box office hits.
