Experience a ‘Summer of More’ at Gaylord Texan Resort!
Summer is in full swing, offering families time to relax and play! Standing on the shores of the majestic Lake Grapevine, Gaylord Texan Resort offers vacationers a summer playground featuring multiple resort pools, delicious dining, soothing spa treatments, live entertainment and an itinerary full of friendly-family events and activities.
A summertime must, Gaylord Texan’s 10-acre outdoor water park, Paradise Springs, offers overnight resort guests a place to splash and play while soaking up the sun. The water park features a relaxing 600-foot-long lazy river, 25-foot-long zip-line, 6,000-square-foot lagoon, four winding waterslides, and a giant water treehouse featuring a Texas-sized water bucket dumping 1,500 gallons of water every two minutes. In addition to the water park, the resort also features a recently renovated outdoor pool with a hot tub as well as an indoor lap pool.
Keeping the kids entertained, this year’s itinerary of activities and events feature a brand-new Pirates & Princesses theme. Kids can step into a world of fantasy and adventure at the Pirate and Princess Academy, search for “hidden treasure” throughout the resort with the Princess Scavenger Hunt, let their inner artist come alive at the Art Studio, meet a real parrot in the “Ahoy, Matey! Animal Encounters”, or race against the clock to solve puzzles in two exciting Escape Rooms. The whole family will enjoy the “Summer of Cirque: Pirates and Princesses” show, featuring daring aerial acrobatics, stunning contortion, juggling, and more! Plus, there are plenty of photo ops with creative décor displayed throughout the property’s spacious indoor gardens including a Princess treehouse and a massive 25-foot tall pirate ship.
Visitors enjoy dining at the resort’s multiple award-winning restaurants, offering spectacular service and refined cuisine. There is something to satisfy every palate, whether you are in the mood for a savory burger, delicious steak and seafood, or uniquely curated Italian dishes. Several food and beverage specials are offered throughout the summer including tequila tastings, margarita and mimosa flights, and upscale brunches. Unique culinary programs include a Junior Chef’s Camp, allowing kids to take over the kitchen and create delicious meals for themselves and two family members, while adults can partake in delightful oyster and wine pairings.
