For those looking to get out and enjoy an evening of fun and fireworks, and perhaps a side of airshow and a bit of live music thrown in for good measure, look no further than Kaboom Town in Addison for all your Independence Day needs. The beauty about the Addison party is that you can celebrate and still have the fourth for other excursions, such as sailing, body painting, and competitive dining.
We have a good list of restaurants and bars along Belt Line that are offering a place to avoid traffic and other distractions. It is always suggested that you grab one of the few remaining hotel rooms so that your holiday is the very safest.
