By a show of hands: Who can find Grapevine, Texas, on a map?
This city —population 50,000 — is the site of The SMART Show Dallas. (It's also in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, so we can get away with not calling our event The SMART Show Grapvine.) And I'll admit, I had no idea where it was.
So I called on my trusty friend who's great with geography. Her name is Google Maps.
And look at what I learned. Parks, shopping, golf and a nice big lake are all near our venue, the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.
Even better, the venue itself is no slouch for things to do and see. So everything else is icing on the cake. Sweet, rich, thick, amazing icing.
You know, I'm suddenly looking forward to that flight to Dallas. How about you?
