Thinking about taking an adventure to celebrate the New Year? With help from fodors.com, we have a list of places that you should run to and welcome 2015. If it is cutting it too close to book a flight, consider trying these places out for future New Year’s Eves to come.
Leave the cold winter nights for some fun in the sun and visit this major city. According to fodors.com, “the city offers celebrations both free and VIP, and everything in between.” Hot spots to check out include Bayfront Park and Lummus Park. But if you are into the party scene, plan to stay in Miami’s “glitzy hotels” which holds events with performers we know and displays fireworks at midnight.
Who would not like to party with our favorite Disney Characters on New Year’s Eve? This is a wonderful trip for families because the “theme park stays open until 1 am, but it’s packed with fun activities all day long,” fodors.com states. There are fireworks to help welcome the New Year, and you will not have to deal with a crowd of people like you would see during the spring and summer.
Go down to New Orleans for a New Year’s Eve celebration that you will never forget. Fodors.com believes “the main event is a thrilling 15-minute fireworks show on the Mississippi River, along with the Fleur de Lis drop, where “Baby New Year” is dropped from the roof of the Jax Brewery in Jackson Square.” Afterwards stroll through Bourbon Street and the Latin Quarter for authentic music and parties that practically go on all night long.
Casinos, clubs, and the hottest hotels, make Las Vegas the perfect party spot for New Year’s Eve. The Las Vegas Strip is transformed “into a giant street party with live bands, pyrotechnic displays, and laser shows,” as stated by fodors.com. Because “fireworks are launched from seven rooftops along the Strip,” you will see them from your room or in the streets.
New York City
Of course one should go to New York City for New Year’s Eve. Although it is freezing, watching the “12-foot-wide crystal ball weighing nearly 12,000 pounds” drop down Times Square is nostalgic and classic. Brave the cold or watch the ball drop from a hotel near the chaotic scene, fodors.com also suggests that you take a boat ride along Liberty Island to see some fireworks. The point is nothing says New Year’s Eve than chilly and vibrant New York City.
