Gaylord Texan

A few weeks ago, Mr. Higgins and I went to explore the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. If you've ever flown into DFW Airport, you've probably seen - or flown over - this massive hotel. It's like a mini (Texas) version of the Opryland in Nashville. Inside the complex, there are lush gardens....and a replica of the Alamo!

Also inside is a mock Riverwalk. Much cooler and less crowded than the real one in San Antonio!

It was just so beautiful inside! I'd forgotten what the Opryland was like but this reminded me! The main thing I remember about Opryland is how small - but expensive - the rooms were. I wonder if the Gaylord is the same way? Hm.....

After a nice dinner here, Mr. Higgins and I returned to reality, i.e. the Texas heat!
