New Year's Eve Travel Destinations

There are many exciting places to go on the most exciting night of the year. Share your New Year's countdown with the world by traveling to one of these hotspots:

  • New York City – You've seen the ball drop every year on TV. This year watch it live in Times Square with hundreds of thousands of other partiers.
  • Niagara Falls, Canada – Ring in the New Year beside one of the wonders of the world. The spectacular fireworks over the falls are free.
  • Paris – what better way could there be to start the year than by toasting your loved one in the City of Light?
  • Rio de Janeiro – count down to midnight on a Brazilian beach in one of the best party cities in the world. Here's a tip – it's tradition to wear all white for New Year's Eve in Rio.

New Year's Eve Cruise

For a truly non-stop, all-inclusive New Year's celebration, book a New Year's Eve Cruise. Board the boat a few days before the end of the year, and let the party begin. Cruise packages at this time of year range from a few days in length to a couple of weeks, and may include Christmas as well.

If you like the idea of celebrating at sea, but you can't get away for a true vacation, look into a harbor or river cruise. Many harbor cities offer evening dinner and dancing cruises that will bring you back to port after midnight. These cruises feature the best possible views of New Year's Eve fireworks displays over the water.

Whether you travel to a nearby city, an all-inclusive resort or an exotic local, traveling on New Year's Eve will set the tone for an eventful year to come.
