Downtown Walking Tour/Big D NYE Party at Victory Park

Downtown Walking Tour followed by The Big D NYE Party at Victory Park

This will be a great opportunity to see Dallas at it's finest and
attend the biggest party in Texas to bring in the New Year.

http://bigdnye.com/

We will meet at the Kennedy memorial behind Old Red at 8:45. We start walking
at 9 sharp.

We will walk and do some site seeing for about 2-2 1/2 hours ending up at
Victory Park around 11:15.

This is a relatively long walk and the party afterward will require a lot of
standing so make sure you are up to it.

Please note that this walk does include numerous stops so you can sit and rest
during these stops. If you want to just blast through the walk then this may
not be for you. Stopping to take in the sites and history of Dallas is the best part of
this event. Here are a few photos from a previous event: http://www.meetup.com/dallas-wildlife-hiking-singles-couples/photos/12293472/#[masked]


Some points of Interest along the way will be:


Dealey Plaza

Union Station

Ferris Plaza Park

Lubben Plaza Park

Omni Dallas

Pioneer Plaza

Founders Cemetery

City Hall Plaza

Neiman Marcus Christmas Windows

Main Street Garden Park

Clyde Warren Park


If you do not want to walk or walk too far you can make arrangements to
rendezvous with the group at some point along the way or at the party.

-Parking is easy and free. Just park near the Kennedy Memorial.

After the party it is a short walk back to your car.

    Are pets / dogs invited ?

      Dogs are more than welcomed on the walk. The party afterwards does not allow it. You can come just for the first part if you want.

    I'm taking the train from/back to Garland

    Trains are running extra hours from Midnight to 2AM on half hour intervals if anyone wants to take DART rail into town for it.

    Sounds like a fun evening... are you planning on walking back to where we started - where we parked our cars? Or will we be stranded once we get to the party...

    • Rex B.

      You can walk back with me after the party or you can leave any time you want. It's not too far. You just go back down Houston St. through Dallas Alley.

    Curious question, I know we can bring a collapsible chair. I'm planning to take the train in for the walk, and back after the NYE party. Do you know of one that might be ultra-light to carry on the walk?

    Roughly, how many miles is the walk?

    December 26, 2013

    • Rex B.

      Amy, it is about 2 1/2 miles. The stops along the way make it pretty easy. We may end up deferring Clyde Warren Park and cut straight back towards where the party is. Depending how the timing comes out. I want to get a good spot for the fireworks.
