New York, New York!

It may seem cliche, but celebrating New Year’s Eve in New York City’s Time Square is a once in a lifetime experience. Be at the center of it all as the world watches the Waterford Crystal Ball descend and countdown to midnight.

Enjoy a multitude of celebrity performances in the most exciting city in the world. And when it is all over, you can catch a Broadway show, go shopping on Park Avenue and dine at some of best restaurants in the world. Even if you have been to NYC a million times before, this will be a night to remember.

On the other hand, NYC on New Years can be loud, crowded and way to “touristy.”

The Alternative: Ring In 2017 In Toronto

Where to stay:

First, consider VIP services at Toronto Pearson International Airport and then enjoy 5-starstar accommodations from amazing hotels such as the Four Seasons Toronto.

Instead of watching the ball drop in Time Square, head over to Nathan Square for the countdown to midnight that includes a spectacular fireworks show. Plus, there are hundreds of events throughout the city including everything from comedy shows, special events at exclusive nightclubs and so much more.


New Years By The Beach In Miami
