Infrastructure & Accessibility
Grapevine, Texas boasts of a robust infrastructure that has benefited from seismic growth within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the state of Texas as a whole. New projects like the TEXRail commuter rail line have made it easier for Grapevine businesses to attract workers living within the greater region, and for people to access the DFW International Airport. In addition, Grapevine is strategically connected to the rest of Texas and the country through a large highway system and one of the busiest airports in the country.
Grapevine provides direct access to two major airports. Dallas Love Field International Airport is a quick 20-minute drive from the city center, while DFW International Airport sits partially within city limits. That puts the region’s top airport just ten minutes away from most residents and employers, especially now that the TEXRail commuter train runs directly from Main Street to Terminal B inside the DFW International Airport.
Located in North Texas, Grapevine has access to all the major highways that lead to Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Dallas and Fort Worth are a short 25-minute drive away, and cities like Oklahoma City, Austin, and Shreveport can be reached in 3 hours. Houston, San Antonio, and Little Rock are all within a 5-hour drive, as well.
