The West End Historic District: Go Big & Get Home Safely

 |  Posted: by

The West End District in Downtown Dallas is known for far more than the rich cultural thread that, through both triumph and tragedy, it has woven into the fabric of American history. It is a destination spot. It is a business hub. It is the pulse of Big D. And tonight, wherever you go in our tiny town of just over a million, you’re sure to find movers, shakers, revelers and merrymakers ringing in the New Year with that same confidence and good-natured bravado that has come to to define all things Dallas—go big or go home.

Get Home Safely This New Year’s Eve

DART Train to Downtown Dallas TXAnd this year, the West End Historic Association wants to remind all Dallasites just how important both going big and getting home safely truly are. We might be a city of suit-wearing, sport-loving cowboys, but we’re not stupid, and we certainly don’t make bets that we know we can’t win.

The WEHA made it our mission in 2015 (and it will certainly carry over into the wee hours of 2016) to inform those of you who want to enjoy the bright lights and big city this New Year’s Eve that there are more ways than ever for all residents of downtown, uptown, midtown and everything in between to have an amazing and responsible time when the clock strikes midnight.

Meet & Greet in The Dallas West End as You Ring in the New Year

The West End is filled with ample street, covered, metered, and lot parking along with Dart Stations to transport you in and out of various neighborhoods and suburbs with safety and ease. With our prime location between The House of Blues, American Airlines Center, The Arts District, Klyde Warren, Fair Park and Deep Ellum, we are literally smack dab in the middle of downtown Dallas and all of its New Year’s festivities.

The main difference in the West End Dallas is that you can park almost anywhere you want, eat at a four star restaurant and then kiss and ride your way to the biggest and best parties in downtown Dallas. It is the perfect place to start your evening and, by far, the smartest and safest way to end it.

Wherever you go and whatever you do, the WEHA implores Dallasites to park and ride into downtown, take advantage of the countless sober transportation methods available to you, and in true Dallas style GO BIG… but much more importantly, please get home safely.

Happy New Years, ya’ll, and cheers to 2016!
