Right after Christmas, New Year’s Eve is the last day of the year to celebrate with late-night parties, family gatherings, a countdown, firework displays, and somehow a great excuse to get drunk. So before heading back to your 9-5 hour jobs in a couple of days, maximize your New Year celebration by spending the evening in one of these cities.
1. New Orleans, Louisiana
Jackson Square hosts live music performances and partying all day before the countdown at Crescent City. In the evening, cruises on the Mississippi River will give you great views of the skyline and the city while enjoying music, beverages, and a scrumptious buffet. Bourbon Street will continue to be the center of the main party hosted by a vast array of clubs and bars. As the clock strikes midnight, a breathtaking fireworks display will also be shown over the Mississippi River.
2. Las Vegas, Nevada
With crowds growing over the years, Las Vegas is sure to become another party block this New Year’s Eve. The famous strip, stretching from Stratosphere to Mandalay Bay, will be closed to traffic encouraging street partying. Choreographed fireworks display from rooftops of establishments and with everyone dressed to impress will be most entertaining for partygoers. Casinos and nightclubs will be packed with band performances and filled with celebrities.
3. Chicago, Illinois
Enjoy amusement rides at Navy Pier and watch fireworks display synced to music at Lake Michigan on New Year’s Eve. Bars, Buffet, Grand Ballroom access, and Lakeview Terrace, are available to the crowd via the annual Resolution Gala. Top Luxury hotels bring the party with DJs, premium liquor, and live bands.
An itinerary or a list of places to go to when in your selected city makes the trip more fun and productive. Always keep in mind that planning ahead, perhaps with research, reservation, or booking, will make the best out of these festivities.
