How close do you want to be to where they launch from?

Plano's at the fields east of Alma, south of Legacy are pretty good.

Addison puts on a good show. Roanoke display last year was very nice.

Fort Worth Botanic Gardens with the Fort Worth Symphony, nice place for a picnic + good music + great fireworks.

Oh and the fireworks are launched FROM the garden grounds, you'll be sitting/lying on a blanket right under them.  What's a little falling cinder

Coppell did a great show last year. Right at 121 and 35.

We ninja'd our way to the top of a closed parking garage there, was excellent.

I think it was better than Kaboomtown in Addison.

Honestly just park outside on the other side of the trinity in fort worth and enjoy the show.  Its great I have stayed away from it for years as we take the boat to Eagle Mountain and watch the Azle show from the water.  Nothing like watching fireworks explode and sparkle over water.

don't necessarily need to be close at all, unless they have good musical accompaniment to make it worthwhile fighting crowds and parking...

I grew up going to Kaboom Town Addison. These days I like the fireworks at the Allen USA celebration better.

Any night the cats have fireworks after the game( like on the 4th), take a blanket and walk down the opposite bank of the trinity and stake out a claim on the side of the riverbank. The fireworks will be right over your head

As far as big, 4th shows, Kaboomtown would get my vote but it has gotten so big and crowded, its hard to find a good spot.

Right at the corner of Lake Vista Dr and the East bound 121 service road. Across from Costco.

It will be blocked off to cars, but your feet should take you where you need to go.

There is going to be a good one on a ranch I know of in San Saba.

Yes but you will be so close you won't notice the tracer.
