Check out some of the best places around to celebrate NYE near Dallas, Texas. No matter what kind of evening you are seeking, the DFW metroplex has an event that is perfect for you, including indoor swimming, fireworks, and two-stepping.
Okay, so everyone starts talking about this big event when the first of the year starts rolling around, but it is worth it? The short answer, yes. The key is to plan accordingly. We have heard too many stories of people sitting in an Uber, stuck in traffic, when the clock strikes midnight, or not getting home until 3 am because they couldn’t get out of a parking lot, due to crazy amounts of traffic. If you live outside of Dallas proper, the trick is to take the train. Arrive early, there are so many things to do nearby. There will be several watch parties and happy hours within blocks of the beautiful fireworks show.
The good news is, if you don’t want to get out with the crowds, you don’t have to. Stay in your comfy clothes and pop some popcorn and watch the show from the comfort of your own home by tuning to KXAS-TV (nbc5) and watch the live stream.
This Arlington, Texas event is HUGE. It is a bit different from the Dallas events because here you will find two-stepping and a PBR Texas Cowboy bar. You can listen to live music and view some FREE midnight fireworks.
While the fireworks are free, tickets for everything else are available here. Use the code “autumn” to receive $20 off.
Are you looking for some plans that don’t include paying a babysitter? Bring the kids along to Epic Waters for an NYE Swim Party. This indoor water park in Grand Prairie, Texas hosts an all-day affair. There will be raffles, duck races, a DJ and the “ball drops” at various times throughout the night, so they don’t leave anyone out due to early bedtimes. If you are feeling fancy, you can grub down on a prime rib buffet for $30.
