New Year’s Eve seems to be one of those holidays we know is coming — it’s literally the same time every year — but tend to ignore until it’s right around the corner. Blame the all-encompassing Christmas holiday and the busyness of the season, but regardless, New Year’s Eve plans can sometimes fall by the wayside.
Get a jump on this year, even if it’s only a couple weeks in advance, and plan a celebratory vacation. Whether you love the holiday or it’s just another day, it’s a great time to take advantage of the low-traffic airports and less-traveled destinations.
Plan to be Flexible
The more flexible you can be about your trip, including the destination and accommodations, the better. Cities will be pretty packed with tourists and parties in hotels and bars, so unless you enjoy the crowds and last-minute hiked rates, steer clear. Consider some rural options ,like a scenic location with mild temperatures for nature-filled hikes and peace and quiet or some off-beat destinations you’ve been meaning to visit, but haven’t had the chance.
Plan for Weather
While narrowing down your destination options, consider the weather. While it’s merely a suggestion and not a guarantee, it will be helpful to know what you’re in for in a new destination this time of year. If you plan to drive, camp or spend time outside, make sure you’re prepared for the chance of snow.
Plan for a Quick Trip
New Year’s Eve and Day is all of a few hours long so don’t go crazy packing and cramming in activities. If you do want to make a trip out of it, consider the possibility that tours and activities may be closed for the holiday, so plan accordingly.
Consider the Perks
Scout deals online for homeshares like Airbnb, VRBO and Flipkey, or check out available hotels and bundles with Hotels.com, Priceline, Expedia, Kayak and a slew of others. There may be new promotions and rates for those traveling over the holiday.
Kick off the New Year in a new way, with a trip under your belt and new experiences and memories.
