Whatever it is you desire, here are seven places you should consider ringing in the new year in America.

7. New York City, New York

The city of New York is one of the most popular New Years Eve destinations and the city’s iconic public square- Times Square, is where most head to watch the ball drop. New York City boasts over 100,000 places to have a drink and ring in the new year. Many choose to bundle up and brave the elements in Times Square where you can purchase an official party pass and glide right past the velvet ropes and onto premium open bars. Other popular places in the city to party include STK Rooftop where a live DJ spins the hottest tracks and the bar overlooks the Hudson River, or the Monarch Rooftop Lounge which boasts awesome views of the Empire State Building. Wherever you choose to ring in the new year here, we promise its going to be epic.

6. Honolulu, Hawaii

Ring in the new year wearing summer clothing when you head to Honolulu where fireworks burst over both Waikiki Beach and the Aloha Tower Marketplace. This is one of the best family friendly New Year’s Eve celebrations in America and we suggest toting the kids along for an unforgettable vacation. The Kaka’ako Waterfront Park boasts something for everyone including carnival rides, a beer garden, food trucks and multiple stages of entertainment. If you have no kids in tow, make sure to hit up one of the hot bashes which feature themes, dress up parties and the hottest DJ’s in town. Ringing in the new year Hawaiian style is also a blast and count on hitting the beach in the morning to cure that hangover.
