Without a doubt New York City is the best place in America to ring in the New Year if you’re looking for a large public gathering. With that being said, Las Vegas has recently launched itself into the second best to celebrate New Years Eve. Las Vegas is definitely the #1 place to celebrate New Years Eve in the Pacific time zone.
Whether you’re looking to party in a club with some of the best DJ’s or gather outside and watch fireworks or live music there’s definitely something for you. Along with the awesome party come some things to know about.
7 Las Vegas strip casinos will shoot off fireworks for New Years Eve. Gathering is not confined to one area as fireworks will be shot off from MGM Grand on the south end of the strip all the way to the Stratosphere on the north end of the strip.
The chaos of 300,000+ people on the Las Vegas strip for fireworks means that the Las Vegas strip will be closed much of the night on New Years Eve. If you have plans elsewhere get back to your hotel early. Better yet, don’t leave the strip.
If confined spaces and live music are more to your liking then you may want to head to downtown Las Vegas. This year’s Downtown Countdown will cost anywhere from $30 to $40 but you get concerts and “fireworks” show on the awesome Fremont Street Experience canopy. This is 21+ only…NO KIDS! (YAY)
