Tucked along the shores of Grapevine Lake, the Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel offers sparkling service and Texas hospitality. Blooming beneath a stunning, sprawling glass atrium, acres of indoor gardens fill the space with color amid winding waterways, restaurants, and designs inspired by famous Texas landmarks. As a Lone Star beams down from the modern glass overhead, Spanish colonial architecture transports you further south amid palatial views, meandering rivers, and picturesque bridges.
For those craving the same luxurious, relaxing scenes of iconic Texas locales with family-friendly amenities, Grapevine’s Gaylord Texan Resort is a choice destination.
The Gaylord Texan Resort enchants the summer season with lots of surprising resort extras including the kinds of pools, water parks, fun activities, culinary experiences, and world-class entertainment that make a staycation feel like a destination worth returning to.
At the Gaylord Texan’s 10-acre Paradise Springs Water Park, you get the sun-drenched cool waters of a beach without any sand in your swimsuit. Four waterslides, a 600-foot-long lazy river, zipline, and giant water playhouse are perfect for kids and the young at heart, but the cabanas and lounge chairs are peaceful enough for any summertime reading binge or outdoor meditation.
Create lifetime family memories with new kids’ adventures this year. At the new Adventure Kids’ Clubhouse, little ones express their artistic creativity over crafts to take home.

For animal-loving kiddos, up-close interactions with incredible creatures happen through the Ahoy, Matey! Animal Encounters. The interactive live show, Join the Club leads kids through the exploration and wonder of the summer.
Teens hooked on culinary shows and other aspiring young chefs can join in on Junior Chefs Camp to get cooking on delicious treats and more to eat and share with two family members, but all kitchen mad scientists are welcome.
For all ages, the returning Summer Cirque unfurls and delights with spectacular acrobatic and aerial artists. These performers twist into show-stopping balance acts and manage breathtaking feats in a story of a lone soul who dreams of pirate adventures this summer.
To get moving with family, friends, or colleagues, visit Three Escape Rooms for the chance to race against the clock and solve puzzles as a team.
