Best Places Around DFW to Ring in 2020!

And just like that Christmas is over and it’s time to celebrate the end of 2019. Crazy, we know! If you are staying in town, but haven’t nailed down plans yet, there are some fun happenings around town you may be interested in. 

Fun for the Whole Family 


Swim into the new year at the largest indoor waterpark in the nation! There will be a DJ, raffles, duck races, ball drop, and so much more! Tickets for the fun in Grand Prairie can be purchased here.


No need to stay awake until midnight, Sci-Tech Discovery Center is giving you the chance to see the ball (balloons) drop at noon! Stop by this Frisco favorite for face painting, hands-on science experiments, balloon twisters, spring-free trampolines, explosive stage shows, and more.


Head to Arlington for new traditions and thrills this New Year’s Eve! Ride roller coasters by day, enjoy the twinkling holiday lights by night, and enjoy delicious funnel cakes in between. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind way to spend your last day of 2019!

Something for the Grown-Ups 


Last year, Funky Town’s very own Leon Bridges performed at New Year’s In The Funk, a soulful party held at a super-secret warehouse on the South Side (say that 5 times fast). Although the music lineup for 2019 hasn’t been announced yet, I’m sure that they’ll bring in another renowned artist for the party-goers to enjoy.


This bash in Arlington is one of DFW’s biggest (and newest) New Year’s Eve celebrations! Head to Texas Live for an unforgettable NYE packed with live music, multiple DJs, a champagne toast, confetti cannons, party favors, a ball drop…and even a special appearance from Elvis!

This year, you can head to Bourbon Street without leaving the DFW metroplex! The Gaylord Texan will have a New Orleans cocktail bar and live entertainment from Le Freak. Tickets range from $35-$3,500, so you can go all out, or dip your toes in. The choice is yours!

Low Key Fun 


Keep it casual with bowling, video games, appetizers, and a champagne toast. It may be more relaxed, but this is sure to be a fun way to ring in the new year! Snag a ticket package and celebrate in Plano or Irving.


For a hole-in-one (get it?), reserve a bay for up to 6 guests for unlimited game play from 9 PM to 1 AM! If you want to kick it up a notch, upgrade to a VIP Bay, and enjoy a delicious buffet and a bottle of wine for your group. Never been to Top Golf? See what it’s all about here.
