Vegas throws the ultimate party on New Year’s Eve with an endless number of concerts, shows, club parties, casinos and hotel bashes to attend. When the countdown hits midnight, watch the show from a rooftop bar like the Rio’s VooDoo Lounge, Ghostbar on the 55th floor of The Palms, or AirBar at the Stratosphere. Fireworks go off from seven different rooftops along the Strip, so you’re guaranteed a view from nearly any angle.
The biggest New Year’s Eve party in Canada takes place over the most powerful waterfall in North America, Niagara Falls. More than 2,000 pounds of fireworks are set off in two shows at Victoria Park overlooking the falls. Before and between the explosions, international musical acts keep an all-ages crowd warm as they count down to midnight.
Maui offers a tropical twist on the traditional idea of New Years Eve. Imagine a romantic dinner for two on the beach, fireworks seen from a catamaran cruise, or attend a traditional Hawaiian luau with the kiddos. One experience not to miss... rising early on New Year's Day to head to the summit of Haleakala for one of the most spectacular sunrises in the world.
