Top 5 / North America


New Year’s Eve celebrations happen worldwide and now is the time to plan where you will spend your evening as the clock strikes midnight. Here are the top places in the United States in which you should consider counting down the clock.


New York City

The famed Big Apple is viewed on televisions around the world. Why not try to get in on the action this year? Be prepared though — once you get into Times Square you cannot get out until the end of the night unless you want to lose your spot.


New Orleans

As one of the biggest party destinations all year-round, New Orleans will not disappoint for New Year’s. The warmer climates make celebrating more enjoyable with a drink in hand and fireworks over the Mississippi River.


Las Vegas

More than 300,000 people travel to Las Vegas for a huge party in the streets. The Las Vegas Strip is shut down to allow pedestrians to enjoy the choreographed firework display by all of the casinos.



Disney is a great spot to welcome in the New Year. Eat and drink from around the world in Epcot and then end the night with a spectacular fireworks display in Magic Kingdom.


Los Angeles

Have a glamorous evening in Los Angeles. With so many clubs, restaurants and lounges to choose from, your night will be anything but boring.
