Not everyone is up for celebrating the New Year’s Eve with the crowd that counts millions of people from all over the world, it can be exhausting. However, if you are not one of those, and you love big crowds, then NYC will be your perfect New Year’s Eve destination, because not many cities in the world offer the atmosphere like New York does. Even if you have been living on the moon since your birth, you must have heard about the famous annual New Year’s Eve gathering in Times Square. That night, you will be able to see famous musicians and the even more famous “ball drop”, in which a 12,000 pounds, 12-foot-wide, crystal ball descends atop One Times Square. For those who want a less crowded atmosphere, there are plenty of restaurants and bars overlooking Times Square. On the other hand, if you are looking for something totally different, New York also offers nighttime boat rides on New York Harbor, which is actually the best way to enjoy in the midnight fireworks display on Liberty Island.
