New Year’s Eve is a day of celebration, for partiers and non-partiers alike. All across the globe, people flock to their favorite restaurants, nightclubs, and lookout spots to reflect on the current year and ring in the next with friends and family. Just because the nightlife capital of the world has a chance of snowfall this New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean the activities are on hold. The city will be roaring with excitement, as always. If you’re still on the lookout for plans, we’ve got a few ideas:
Fremont Street for TributePalooza

If you’ve ever been down to Fremont Street or the downtown area, you know it’s a totally different animal than the Strip. A staple of Fremont Street “culture” is the rotation of great cover bands that serenade tourists in the evenings. At 4 p.m., Fremont Street will be closed off to the general public, and at 6 p.m., ticketed individuals will be allowed in the event area. Prepare yourself for a night of lights, music, and great memories. Head’s up: You must be at least 21 to attend.
Spend it on the Strip
There’s one word for New Year’s Eve on the Las Vegas Strip: eventful. Aside from the obvious top-notch headliners at every nightclub in a three-mile radius, you can enjoy a famous firework display from some of the largest hotels on the strip. Participants include the MGM Grand, Aria, Caesars Palace, Stratosphere Tower, and Treasure Island. The display is set to consist of upwards of 80,000 firework explosions. The top floor of parking garages are said to be wonderful viewing points. Early arrival to stake a claim is recommended.
Helicopter Tour of the Grand Canyon
If you’d rather not spend your New Year’s Eve amidst thousands of your closest friends, a helicopter getaway to a breath-taking destination is never a bad idea. Helicopter tours run in the morning and early afternoon, which gives you time to get back to home base and relax before running back out to see fireworks or have dinner.
None of these sound like your cup of tea? Las Vegas is home to countless restaurants and bars, most of which are hosting events. Search your favorites and see what they’ve got in store! If you are, however, interested in booking flights to the Grand Canyon, give Grand Canyon Flight a call today! Regardless of where you spend it, have a safe and happy New Year!
