Sydney

Sydney is home to the world’s second-largest New Year’s celebration (and first place in the world to ring in the new year, time-wise). It also happens to boast the world’s largest fireworks display: The display typically involves 6 barges along a 3 1/2-mile expanse of water, and the use of 30,000 pyrotechnic effects, for a lengthy 12 minutes. The show attracts a crowd upward of 1 million, with the famed Sydney Harbor, as well as the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the places to see. Also check out the illuminated boats that glide along the waterfront for the late-night Harbour of Light Parade, spanning a 9-mile route. If you need a rest from the urban center, check out Bondi Beach’s ultimate dance party. 

 

 

New York
Times Square’s inaugural New Year’s hullabaloo debuted in 1904 to celebrate the opening of The New York Times headquarters; today hundreds of thousands of people descend upon the city’s bustling axis each Dec. 31 to hold a party unlike any other in New York City. Since food and drink vendors are not permitted, pack a picnic to last you the day. Area restaurants are open, but the wait time can often be hours. As the sun sets, the famed New Year’s Eve Ball is hoisted to the top of One Times Square’s 77-foot flagpole and makes its 60-second drop just before the stroke of midnight.
