Grapevine, Texas, Where Old is New

Grapevine is the product of a thriving airport and an Aussie traveler, both of whom dreamed the small Dallas suburb could become bigger and better… and it has.

The airport is Dallas/Fort Worth International, which opened in 1974. It now welcomes 64 million passengers per year and pours millions into local tax coffers.

The Aussie is Paul W. (P.W.) McCallum, who settled here decades ago and, as executive director of the city's Convention and Visitors Bureau, has transformed Grapevine into a tourist attraction and marketing hub for the Texas wine industry.
