Dallas Ranked Among Best Places To Celebrate New Year’s Eve

DALLAS, TX — Dallas is one of the best places to celebrate New Year’s Eve in America according to a new ranking from the personal-finance website WalletHub. The website compared the 100 biggest cities across 28 key metrics, including the legality of fireworks to the average price of a New Year’s Eve party ticket. Some of the other metrics included New Year’s Eve events per capita, duration of fireworks shows, and availability of luxury dining.

This information was gathered from the U.S. Census Bureau, Yelp, and local tourism offices, among many other sources.

Dallas was ranked number 17, right below San Antonio. It is no surprise that New York City was ranked number 1 considering more than 1 million people are expected to pack the streets of Times Square this year while 100 million more will watch the festivities on TV, according to 6sqft.com.
