Find the most exciting places to celebrate the new year
Counting down to midnight on the eve of December 31 has become a worldwide tradition unlike any other. It is one of the only events that ties people all across the globe together, so it is only right that the night is celebrated with parties, spectacular light shows and plenty of revelry.
There's always something going on in Las Vegas, and that is never more true than on New Year's Eve. Resorts and casinos organize massive bashes for guests to partake in, with over-the-top entertainment and decorations taking center stage. Even in the middle of the desert, you'll feel as if you've stepped into the middle of a winter wonderland with all of the activities and attractions set up around the city.
Visitors have plenty of opportunities to customize their stays in Las Vegas, as countless spas, gaming facilities and theaters offer their services every day. You'll have the chance to indulge yourself before dressing to the nines for a raucous party that will likely go into the early hours of January 1.
New Year's Eve may occur in the middle of winter, but travelers can warm up their night with a stay in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Spend your days on the warm beaches, soaking up the sun and improving your tan before heading to one of the city's many top festivities. No matter where you go, however, be sure to take part in a Puerto Rican tradition and eat 12 grapes in the 12 seconds leading up to midnight, as it is rumored to guarantee a year of good luck.
For the most stylish celebrations, check out hotels like Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza or La Concha, which provide amazing musical entertainment to go along with the most exclusive parties. You may even get a chance to pick up some salsa or merengue steps as you dance the night away.
Australia is the first country to greet the new year, and no place does it bigger in the Land Down Under than Sydney. Its fireworks display boasts more than 100,000 pyrotechnic effects and 25,000 shooting comets – all bursting in the skies above the city's iconic opera house and Harbor Bridge and complemented by the Harbor of Light Parade, which features more than 50 glowing boats making their way through the water.
The city has even created an app to help travelers find the best spots to view the light show, and keep up to date on the news and happenings around Sydney.
