I've been told that Keller is to Ft. Worth as Grapevine is to Dallas. Is this correct?

When I visited the area, I stayed in Grapevine; I didn't get an opportunity to see much of Keller, but I was told the town center was every bit as appealing as Grapevine's town center.

NO--the Keller town center is not as appealing as the Grapevine town center--it is not even complete--it would be new and the Grapevine town center is historic Grapevine main st--totally different situation altogether...

but there is something called the Grapevine Town Center which is just name for a strip mall off Hwy 114...

and I don't know what you mean by paralleling Keller/FTW and Grapevine/Dallas

do you just mean it is close to the downtown--since Grapevine is not as close to downtown Dallas as Keller probably is to FTW that is not a good analogy
That Grapevine is a satellite community to Dallas -- maybe--but there are people who live in Keller and work in Dallas...

I was under the impression that Keller had a historic area like Grapevine with the little shops, restaurants, etc. But from your post, I guess that is not the case. Thanks for the info.

yes, Keller does have a SMALL little historic area off of 377 and bearcreek. some shopes resturants and antique stores.
Grapevine has more of a "downtown" area it's larger (and nicer IMO thna Kellers) Main Street very quaint etc...

Keller has a town center with the Arts complex that is growing but nothing like South Lake Towncenter which is an outdooor mall type thing.

I live in Keller, I'll try to anwser any Keller questions you have... there is another poster who lives in Grapevine and I am sure they will be happy to anwser the Grapevine questions.

yes--you were not asking about Old Town Keller--I wondered if that was what you meant
Old Town Keller has a new spirit (http://www.kellercitizen.com/101/story/10143.html - broken link)

Old Town Keller is not that large and has a mix of modern storefronts as well as older ones...
Main St in Keller where the "old town" is located is also 377 and a main drag due for enlarging--but the Old Town part will escape that because the buildings are not set back that far...
