Traveling for the New Year is one of the best ways to ensure 2020 starts on a positive note! Out of loving concern for exciting new beginnings this December 31, here are nine destinations that will guarantee you ring in 2020 with a cheer!
1. New York
New York is kind of a given as all Americans tune in to watch the ball drop in Times Square, but some people enjoy standing in the midst of it all. Don’t want to watch the ball drop? Here are some alternatives for New Year’s Eve in New York City.
New Year’s Eve celebrations abound in London, many complete with live music, Champagne and dancing, or you reserve a spot on a dinner cruise to watch the midnight fireworks over the Thames River…you might even get to hear Big Ben chime in the New Year. In addition to must-see sites London Eye and the Tower of London, a plethora of seasonal activities will keep you busy during the day, such Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland.

Sin City meets all the requirements for an ultimate party night, and New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas is not any different. See the strip’s neon lights from the High Roller observation wheel, the Vegas Nightclub Pass grants access to VIP perks at Nightclubs like the front of the line and also saves you some money, and gastronomes might enjoy an afternoon culinary tour on the Las Vegas Strip – the perfect way to fill up before hitting the town. Also, don’t forget to buy your monorail tickets as it’s the only way to travel around the strip on New Year’s Eve.
The Italian metropolis and fashion capital will make your New Year’s Eve feel like you are living La Bella Vita.

A cultured and sultry city, Paris is singular and the Parisians know how to celebrate life–whether through food, entertainment or romance.
