1. New Year’s Eve Ball Drop
At this time of the year, New York City is famously known for its New Year’s Eve Ball Drop. This tradition started way back in 1907 and has grown in popularity ever since. For years, many tourists and New Yorkers alike come together to stay goodbye to the year and embrace the New Year with either a friendly hug or kiss with their significant other. If you’re unable to venture out to New York, you can always tune in and watch this time honored tradition from the comfort of your home with your family and friends.

Bring on the cheers and smiling faces for the New Year. It is safe to say that many of us love to see the night sky lit up with the pretty colors from Fireworks. When the clock strikes midnight, be sure to go out and enjoy the colorful start to the New Year.
3. Brooklyn Bridge Walk Into the New Year
If you are in New York on New Year’s Eve, one quick way to sightsee and bring in the New Year is by taking part in the Brooklyn Bridge Walk Into the New Year. After learning a bit of history and stories about the Big Apple, cap the night off with watching the fireworks from the city’s skyline.
