It’s no secret that we grew up with an overprotective mother. Fourth of July at our house consisted of those little black snakes that look like slow-growing turds and, if we were lucky, a box of sparklers.
So as adults, we always seek out the biggest and best fireworks displays we can find to make up for a fizzled-out childhood of patriotic disappointment.
In the Dallas area, our go-to party is Addison Kaboom Town!, consistently ranked nationally as a top spot in the nation to view colorful explosions in the night sky.
New regulations this year, however, have made tickets hard to come by for the event. But we’ve found the perfect loophole.
Book a Kaboom Town! hotel room package and get a pair of tickets to the watching party with your overnight stay.
There are several properties offering up room-and-ticket packages, but our recommendation would be InterContinental Dallas. They’ve got beautiful rooms and you can even request rooms with views of the fireworks.
That means you don’t have to fight the crowds to see the show. You’ll have air conditioning, access to your personal stash of adult beverages and the unique ability to celebrate naked.
Talk about freedom.
Addison Kaboom Town!
Thursday, July 3, 5 p.m.-midnight
