New Year’s Eve can be a source of stress for some people. It is the start of a new year and the end of the last one. People will want to end on a high note or start things off with a bang. There can be a lot of pressure on the night. So perhaps it is best to just take it slow and stay in this New Year’s Eve. Make things less complicated, but just as enjoyable as ever. Here are five ideas for low-key New Year’s Eve celebrations.


Have a Party

This might sound counterintuitive, but, if you have the party, you can control the vibe. Instead of heading out on the town, invite some good friends over. Cook some great food and stay in. You can still have a dance party if you want to.


Leave Before Midnight

There is no reason to not go out to the bars, or to someone else’s wild party, but you might want to give a quiet goodbye before midnight. Get home amidst the ruckus and let the New Year quietly dawn.


Fly Somewhere

This isn’t exactly low-key, but it is different. Flights are cheap on New Year’s Eve. You might have to stay a week to get back home just as cheaply, but why not book a flight across time zones and wake up somewhere new in 2019?


Game Night

Invite over your most competitive, fun-loving friends and have a game night. What could go wrong?


Spa Evening

With friends or alone, go to Sephora and purchase some choice facemasks, order in and open a bottle of Champagne. Relax and let the New Year begin.

Safari Safety Tips

A safari is one of the most incredible travel experiences on Earth. It’s also kind of dangerous. If you come prepared, however, you can minimize the risks and have a great story to bring back home.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Tao, Hollywood

Just a block from Hollywood Boulevard is Tao, a Pan-Asian restaurant and bar that lives up to the glitz and glam of the city. Unassuming from the outside, the interior awes each and every sense.

Hari Mari Beachside Flip Flops

No matter how well you care for your flip flops, every summer it seems like the pair from last year disappeared into the ether, leaving you flummoxed and searching for a new pair as you depart for the beach.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
