Top 6 New Year's Eve Celebrations – Minus NYCDecember 28th, 2010 by The JetSetter Team | Comments Off on Top 6 New Year's Eve Celebrations – Minus NYC
Eve celebrations, and you would be right. But that doesn’t mean the rest of the world is eating chopped liver in a Buddhist monastery, because we can predict with one hundred percent accuracy that epic end of the year parties will be raging in the following six cities as well. Take your pick but don’t forget to take your favorite person as well.
If your intent is to party as long as humanly possible, check out Tokyo, Japan, which begins the festivities on December 29th and doesn’t stop until January 4th. Can you handle that much partying? Though most tourist locations are closed down, restaurants and bars are going full tilt.
The Aussies are no shirkers when it comes to marking New Year’s Eve and the new year. Added bonuses include a stunning fireworks and music display over Sydney Harbour Bridge and a geographical location that makes it one of the first population centers to reach midnight.
The weather might be drab now and then and Londoners occasionally reserved but they haven’t forgotten how to let loose a rebel yell at the stroke of midnight on December 31st. Fireworks abound in jolly old England, with the middle of it all being the 135 foot London Eye. Doesn’t matter where in the city you are – you won’t miss it.
They like to dance in Barcelona and New Year’s Eve is simply another excuse to shake hips through the expression of ballroom, salsa, flamenco and good, old rock and roll. Even as the Spanish economy appears on the verge of sputtering to a complete halt in the near future, these lusty people will be partying like it was…err…2010.
New Year’s Eve in Paris is sure to be unforgettable. Raise a glass of champagne at your favorite fine dining or club hotspot. Are there going to be fireworks too? Of course but expect much, much more. After all, this is Paris.
Want to spend your year end party in Paris, New York and Venice? The solution is head for Las Vegas. By the time you read this, there’s a good chance the closest available hotel will be in Denver but don’t let that slow you down. No town on earth parties like Vegas – world class clubs, performers and buffets only begin to tell the story.
But, of course, you could also throw an epic party in your own living room and have a heck of a good time. Go ahead. We won’t tell. What happens in Wichita Falls stays in Wichita Falls.
