Things To Do On New Year's Eve In Las Vegas

Say Hello To The New Year On The Las Vegas Strip

You'll find yourself on the Las Vegas strip waiting for the clock to strike 12 and wonder just what is going on inside the crowded casinos. Well, proper planning and you can be dancing the night away at a club, lounge or restaurants for New year's Eve in Las Vegas.

Welcome the New Year with a huge party with ideas such as these:

  • You can go with the strip side New Year's Eve party such as the event at Cabo Wabo Cantina at Planet Hollywood. $200 gets you entrance to the patio that affords you a view of the fireworks and an all you can drink ticket.
  • You could try an all night party at Crazy Horse III where dancing girls and an open bar welcome you in to celebrate the new year.

    All the info you need to find the best place to be on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas. Get out your good clothes and take a nap before the big night. A few tips, if you are outside, dress warm, pace yourself and know exactly where the restrooms are before the evening gets out of hand. If you are in a club, make sure a responsible person keeps a close eye on whoever is ordering the drinks. There really is no need to order five bottles if its only a few of you, that credit card might crumble when they run it.

    Plan the entire party before you venture into the unknown of a Las Vegas New Year's Eve Party. Find a place to sleep, drink, dance and possibly fall in love. That's right, I met the love of my life on the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd. one incredible New Year's Eve. We talked all night next to a giant Christmas tree. I just forgot to get her name and could not find her the next day. But I met her in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve and so can you!

    The clubs in Las Vegas can be a lot of fun, however they do get expensive. Consider if you want to spend the last night of the year with someone like Kim Kardashian or with a new found friend on the strip. Find a free party or pay through the nose to crowd into a club..

    If your plan is to sleep in the car in the parking lot at Caesars, let me be the first to tell you that it not only gets cold but someone who drank too much will eventually make it very uncomfortable. Believe me, I have a lot of experience in sleeping in cars in Las Vegas parking structures and they never have happy endings. Grab a few friends and split the cost of a room in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve. Thank me in the morning.

    Sure it gets nuts, but you go around once so might as well add Las Vegas to the list of things you have done to welcome in the New Year. Do you want to doze off in front of the television as Ryan Seacrest smiles into the camera and wishes you the best for the coming year? Or, do you want to hug and kiss a total stranger and share a magical 30 seconds wondering how much better the coming year can be? Make a choice, but if you decide to stay home it is very possible your elderly grandmother might be on the lounge chair asking you to refill her egg nog when the clock strikes twelve.
