March 14, 2019 in Luxury Travel
Some of the details may change, but year in and year out, these destinations around the world have a well-deserved reputation for traditionally throwing a great New Year's Eve shindig. Be sure to plan early for prime parties and the best viewing areas for fireworks. Some venues charge admission, and tickets sometimes sell out months ahead. So let the countdown begin. Here are 4 great places where you can travel for a New Year's Eve you'll never forget:
Stately London along the Thames always provides a remarkable backdrop for New Year's Eve fireworks. Tickets sell out fast for the official staging area, but you may be able to see the fireworks for free from hilltops such as Primrose Hill, Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath, Greenwich Park and Alexandra Palace.
One great vantage point is a river cruise on the Monsoon Clipper or other boats. A perfect way to greet the prospect of a new year is to settle down in one of London's oldest pubs, such as the Old Bell Tavern, serving up adult beverages since 1670. While there, fans of British royalty may want to visit sites such as Kensington Palace, where Queen Victoria was born.
2. New York
Times Square in Manhattan. It's synonymous with New Year's Eve across the United States. Even if you aren't there in person, there's a good chance you've watched the famous ball drop on television. (The ball made its debut in 1907 and has been dropped each year since then, except for two years during World War II).
If you don't feel like jamming into Times Square with around 1 million other folks, here are some other options: Head to Grand Army Plaza, which is just off Prospect Park in Brooklyn, for fireworks and fun. You need to arrive early for the best views. Or, If you're 21 or older, try your luck at Resorts World Casino, the only casino in the city. Near JFK Airport, it traditionally throws a blow-out NYE party.
If you are lucky enough to be spending New Year’s Eve in Paris, you really are spoiled for choice in terms of the number of ways to celebrate and the local traditions to try out. To help you make the most of your night, we’ve put together a list of the ten best restaurants, shows, street parties, and club nights in the French capital in which to bring in 2017.
Unsurprisingly, given that the Eiffel Tower is the focal point in Paris for most visitors, there won’t just be people celebrating at its first floor restaurant. The tallest structure in the city and the Champs de Mars, which leads up to it from the École Militaire, act as a gathering point for people who want to spend the evening outside, making new friends, and waiting to shout bonne année to the world.
The Burj Khalifa in Dubai is one of the most attention-grabbing skyscrapers in the world, and it's only more so at New Year's Eve. As it brings in 2019, the Burj Khalifa holds the record for world's tallest building (2,716.5 feet), and throngs gather at the footsteps to welcome a new year with an amazing fireworks show. Not too far away, Burj Plaza is a little quieter and popular with families.
Dubai is building a reputation as a major food destination, so you may wish to indulge in top-tier restaurants such as Cavalli Club Dubai while you're there. And if you have shopping in mind, check out Dubai Mall, one of the world's largest.
