Inside the Gaylord Texan

This week I am catching up on my painting and sewing so I wanted to share a post that was not seen by many. One of my first blog post, hope you don't mind my resharing to those that were not following at the time.  Thanks  sherry

The Gaylord Texan -Alamo Wing

This last March marked the the 15th wedding  anniversary for My baby (Melvin) and I, we so desparately wanted to go to New York, back to Cozumel or even a little drive down to San Antoinio and stay on the riverwalk. However, work and childcare situations prevented that so we went to.............................

The Gaylord Texan---------the next best thing to getting away.  The Gaylord Texas is situated on  Grapevine Lake (15 minute Drive), there are 3  Restaraunts, many boutiques and two gourment coffee shops.....and free entrance into the nightclub The Glass Cactus that overlooks the lake and is very romantic to have a cocktail under the stars and if you love to dance as we do,  well, this is a beautiful place to go dancing. Also they have a special, if you are on your anniversary bring your marriage certificate and you stay the whole weekend for the price of one second day parking and resort fee. Okay we had to go!

The Glass Cactus Club overlooks lake, Very Romantic spot to dance and have a cocktail

But is it the same as getting away, we only drove 15 minutes???  Upon arrival we had valet parking and we never left the resort.

Here are some pictures of the inside of the Gaylord, this hotel is on the Lake, Grapevine is a wonderful Old Town with alot of boutiques and restaurants and even has a train that goes daily from Grapevine to the old Stockyards, it is close to Dallas, Arlington, the Ballpark and Six Flags, the Gaylor is minutes away from Grapevine Mills an awesome outlet mall!  So if YA'll ever come down this way the Gaylord Texan is a must see!!!

A train runs through a make believe Texas Village, this is in the atrium

Gaylord Texan  has an indoor and an outdoor pool. Outdoor pool has bar and dining.

River Walk Cafe

River Walk Cafe (Wonderful all you can eat Breakfast buffet, absolutely the best buffet I have seen)

Stop and smell the roses!
Dark Chocolate, drizzled in white chocolate covered strawberries, little gourmet jelly beans and grapes with wine perfect after dancing snack!

And If the Steakhouse, Swimming, Boutiques, Dancing, Cocktails, and Gourmet coffee shops, Rose Petals, Wine, and Chocolate dipped Strawberries don't relax you and put  spark and sizzle to that romance, then book a couples massage at "Relache Spa" They are a beautiful full service dayspa! I got a manicure here and the polish was called "Shoot out at the OK Corral"  I Loved it!
