Default Best Small town in Texas?----U.S.A.?

Thr town of Grapevine,Pop. >50,000, on the N.W. border of DFW Airport lays claim to the following:
A steam powered rail line that runs between it and the Fort Worth Sockyards.
The largest hotel/convention center in Texas.
Two excellent golf courses.
A Great Wolf Lodge.
A Bass Pro Shop.
A Main Street that retains the charm of the late 1800's and early 20th. century.
Several city owned parks with camping and R.V. facilities on Lake Grapevine along with several large marinas.
Several fine wineries.
Many fine restaurants.
A boulangerie/patisserie owned by genuine French folks.

The statue on the photo honors the Grapevine night watchman. It sits atop the city hall dome.

Default Have to disagree!

This is the best small town in America! Nice shots but I think Telluride, CO is perhaps the best little small town in America.

Telluride will most likely stay small because so few can afford to live there, and Grapevine is no longer a "small town" by any definition!

Grapevine is just over 50,000. That doesn't make it a big city.
