Top Texas Towns To Spend New Year's


Everyone has a different idea concerning the perfect way to spend New Year's Eve. Many like to party, while others prefer to be secluded. Regardless of your personal preference, Texas has a town that is just right for ringing in the New Year.

The Alamo City has long been a favorite New Year's Eve destination. From fireworks to parties on the Riverwalk to historic landmarks to quiet bed and breakfasts, San Antonio has something for everyone.

2. Houston

Houston is the nation’s fourth-largest city and the largest in the Lone Star State. As one might expect, a city that size has plenty to offer over New Year’s weekend. From college football to exlusive midnight balls, the Bayou City is chocked full of excitement over New Year's weekend.

3. Austin

Few places in the country party like Austin does on New Year's Eve. Sixth Street, in particular, is second to none when it comes to finding a New Year's bash.

4. South Padre Island

Tiny South Padre puts on a huge fireworks display over the Laguna Madre Bay every New Year's Eve. Besides an awe-inspiring fireworks exhibition, South Padre offers visitors miles of pristine, secluded beach during December and January.

5. Dallas

There is always plenty to do in the Big D, and New Year's is no exception. The "Holiday in the Park" event will still be ongoing at Six Flags Over Texas, parties will be happening across Dallas.
