3 Best New Years Destinations
New Years is coming up and many people are asking, where are the best parties at?
Well, it goes without saying that the number one hot spot is New York City. You ain’t seen a New Years Eve celebration until you have seen the one that goes on in Times Square. Seeing the ball drop there, whether in person or on TV, is like a tradition and people from all over the globe clamor for a chance to see it happen live and in color.
For over one hundred years, Times Square has been the place to ring in the New Year — and the party does not stop when the ball drops, people.
To really ring in the New Year, this is where you want to be — though good luck getting near the Square. You have to start early!
Now, it might surprise you to know that watching the ball drop down under is a big deal, but it is indeed. Sydney, Australia is actually a very exciting place to spend New Years Eve.
In fact, it is considered the very first city in the entire world to ring in the New Year. It is thus no wonder that they do it in such a big way. Their dazzling display of fireworks is thought to be the biggest one in the whole world and it does not end until a quarter after midnight.
The party does not stop there, though. You can find various big time celebrations rocking out until dawn, at least.
And the best vantage point for those fireworks? Well, anywhere on the Sydney Harbour Bridge will do, but your best bet is to be in a boat right in the harbor.
Are you ready to take a hop across the pond? I know that you are! It will be a worthwhile trip as well, because London ranks number three in the top New Years destinations for this year.
Right from the London Eye, there will be a spectacular display of fireworks. You will be able to see them from balconies and rooftops all over the city — but if you want the very best vantage point, you need to get a spot on the Westminster Bridge, or else get a seat on the north bank of the famed River Thames.
Just after Big Ben rings in the midnight hour, the fireworks start and last until a quarter after.
Do not worry, though; the pubs, the clubs, and the fabulous restaurants stay open long, long after that
