Best Places to Travel For An Unforgettable New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is perhaps the only night a year in which it’s acceptable to party hard all night long. For such an occasion, it can be a good idea to travel out of town and make the most of it, especially if you stayed at home for Christmas. If you’re someone who likes to make New Year’s Eve a truly special night, here are a few places where you can travel to make sure you ring in the new year in unforgettable fashion.


If you’re going to travel somewhere for New Year’s Eve, you’ll want to go someplace warm, and obviously, Miami checks that box. South Beach will be one of the warmest places you can be at the end of December, and the fact that there’s a beach to enjoy doesn’t hurt either. On top of that, there is no shortage of amazing New Year’s Eve parties in Miami, including one hosted by Pitbull. Not all Miami’s New Year’s Eve parties take place on the beach, but that’s definitely an option if that’s how you’ll want to ring in the new year.

San Antonio

This is another warm place where you can celebrate the New Year. The draw of San Antonio is that it has the largest free New Year’s Eve celebration in the state of Texas. The city’s Riverwalk is a picturesque place to spend an evening, even if it’s not a holiday. At the Riverwalk on New Year’s Eve, you can enjoy free music and midnight fireworks. Since the party is free, you can spend all of your money on travel, hotel, and food costs, which will further enhance your New Year’s trip.

New York City

It goes without saying that Times Square and New York City is the Mecca of New Year’s Eve celebrations. Obviously, it’ll be cold and quite expensive to ring in the New Year in Manhattan. But it’s something everyone should experience at least once in their life. Plus, traveling to New York is rarely a bad idea, so you’ll have plenty of places to go and sites to see throughout your trip even beyond watching the ball drop in Times Square.
