New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting times of the year. The holiday marks a new start to a year full of new goals, hopes, and resolutions marked by individuals. It’s also a time to party and celebrate the past year. If you didn’t enjoy the location where you marked the new year, check out the below list. Next year you can consider traveling to ring in the new year.
New York City, NY
One of the most famous cities in the world is also one of the most popular places to celebrate the New Year. Be sure to bundle up during the chilly night, and be prepared for crowds. It’s estimated that over a million people come together in Times Square to be a part of the New Year’s celebration during one night. Over a billion people typically watch the ball drop from the comfort of their homes. When you visit you can expect to enjoy live music from world-famous stars, along with food and drinks amongst swarming crowds of people from all over the world. Experiencing the hustle and bustle of New York City is one thing, but being a part of a world-famous, annual celebration is a once in a lifetime experience.
London is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and Londoners know how to party. Bring in the New Year at the London Eye and enjoy food, drinks, dancing, and amazing views of the fireworks atop Big Ben. Follow the afterparty to local clubs, restaurants, and venues to experience the English festivities. The celebration doesn’t stop at night. Festivities continue throughout New Year’s day, including a parade throughout the city.
Las Vegas, NV
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas—except the memories. As Vegas is the celebration capital of the world during any time of the year, New Year’s Eve brings in double the festivities. The whole Vegas strip turns into a four-mile long celebration of the upcoming year. Make sure you have a plan for when the clock strikes 12. The hotels and venues stop letting people in at 11:00 pm and don’t open again until 12:30 am. If your New Year’s resolution is to not spend money on celebrations, then you should avoid Vegas. A Vegas New Year is about going all out on outfits, food, drinks, parties, and casinos. This is the party experience of a lifetime.
Sydney is one of the greatest places to visit during New Year’s Eve. There’s nothing better than welcoming the new year from a sailing boat. With dozens of places on the water set to experience the fascinating 12-minute firework show (including the world famous Sydney Opera House and Harbour Islands), the city is a must-visit during New Year’s Eve. Over a million people are expected to attend the festivities in Aussie’s capital.
New Orleans, LA
There’s no better way to bring in the New Year than in the Big Easy. With dozens of things to do from Mississippi River cruises, multiple live jazz bands, and watching the traditional New Orleans fleur-de-lis drop, it’s a trip you’ll remember for a lifetime.
