And the city has done its part to foster that impression, by encouraging a unique wine trail, and sponsoring a vintage intown railroad tour.

Top Neighborhoods in Grapevine, TX
Grapevine is small, and fairly new. The city's neighborhoods do have some distinctive differences, but you will find a mix of housing in almost all areas, and where you choose to live may have more to do with the appeal of a specific complex than the overall neighborhood "feel."
City Center is popular because of its access to all the fun and activity in the downtown area, and because it offers easy access to the freeways. The tradeoff is that there is always something happening, and if you like quiet or a more peaceful and scenic atmosphere, you might want to look for an apartment near Lake Grapevine, or in one of the newer gated communities off Fairway Dr. or Park Rd. Dove Road in some areas feels like a winding country lane as well.
