Every scavenger hunt we build comes with a theme, from a wild art heist in the big city to an adventure in a mysterious forbidden land. But for whatever reason, our Texas business had never done a western-themed hunt. Until now. We're excited to announce The West of the Story in Grapevine, a thrilling chase through this historic town. With opportunities to peer inside a genuine frontier cabin, monuments to the pioneers who built the town, and even a run-in with a couple of bandits, it's an only in Texas experience that will get your brain galloping!
Why We Created a Scavenger Hunt in Grapevine
Back in the 1840s when Sam Houston set up camp in the area that would become known as Grapevine, it's not likely he imagined what the city would come to be. But we love exploring the streets of downtown, and our hunt is built on celebrating the rich history of the city, from the trains to the cowboys, from the art to the architecture.
A town like Grapevine is the perfect spot for a scavenger hunt. There's so much history to explore, so much art to discover, and so many places to track down clues. From museums to sculpture to murals, Grapevine provides plenty of opportunities to create our diverse puzzles that give everyone a chance to shine. Plus, between the wineries, museums, and shops, there's so much to do even when you're done, and we love bringing people outside to new neighborhoods.
Why a Scavenger Hunt in Grapevine is Right For Your Group
When you try our Grapevine scavenger hunt, you'll solve puzzles by exploring the city, getting an up close look at the many historic sites that have been preserved in Downtown. Marvel at the trains of the Grapevine Vintage Railroad, get up close and personal with a few honored citizens, and peer inside a genuine frontier cabin. Just watch out for the Would-Be Train Robbers who appear atop the Cotton Belt Hotel every couple of hours.

One of our favorite things about hosting a scavenger hunt in Downtown Plano is getting to spend time in such a cool neighborhood. Full of locally owned shops and restaurants, the neighborhood offers a small-town vibe and presents plenty of opportunities to support small, local businesses. In particular, that comes into play when people get hungry. We've put together a list of restaurants in the neighborhood so that if you're planning a scavenger hunt in Plano, you'll have some ideas of where to stop when -- or even before -- you're done!
Urban Crust is a tasty spot offering delicious pizzas and Italian food. The restaurant has a sizable private room that you can book for parties, and we've even hosted an episode of our game show Buzzered from this spot. Don't miss 32 Degrees bar upstairs on the patio, offering cocktails and a great view of the street below.
Jörg's Cafe Vienna is a piece of history in the center of Downtown. Offering authentic Austrian cuisine like schnitzel, bratwurst, and plenty of beers, it's a Plano institution that just feels like a party. But like a lot of parties, there's not a lot of space for bigger groups. Prepare to get cozy. And just make sure you're going at the right time, as their hours are a little tricky.
Lockhart Smokehouse offers some of the best BBQ in Texas, and it's been a fixture on Texas Monthly's occasional Top 50 BBQ joints list. There's a big space upstairs with room for groups. The line is rarely too long and the brisket is top notch. It's a great place to eat in Downtown Plano, or anywhere, really.
Urban Rio is known for its great happy hour, tasty Mexican food, and great views of the city from its cool patio. With a private tequila room that you can book for groups of 30, it's a fantastic option for relaxing after time exploring the town. Or head upstairs to visit the rooftop bar, with even better views of the city!
Fillmore Pub sits right on 15th street and can provide a welcome spot to sit, nurse a drink, and finish your puzzles. Friendly service and good prices mean you can focus on figuring out answers instead of how to split the check.
Around the corner from Downtown is Hub Streat, a welcoming spot with a huge patio and lots of tables. Don't underestimate the joy of spending an afternoon outdoors eating yummy apps and drinking a cocktail or two.
Zalat is dedicated to pizza, and we mean dedicated. You can head here for a slice or a whole pie, and reminisce about the many times you passed it while you were scrambling through the town searching for clues.
If you need a coffee break during your hunt, don't miss XO Coffee Company, a charming spot with plenty of warm drinks. It's great for finishing off a puzzle during the cooler months... trust us!
Downtown Plano is a hidden gem, a quiet spot with so much to discover. That's what makes it perfect for a scavenger hunt, and perfect for a meal too! Book a Plano scavenger hunt with us and treat your mind and your belly!
