There isn’t a city in the world that celebrates New Year’s Eve like New York City. From the buzz throughout Manhattan to the big ball dropping in Times Square, ringing in the New Year in the “city that never sleeps” is an event that must be experienced first-hand to be believed.
Taylor Swift is slated to perform at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve following a two-hour tribute to the late host, who passed away in April. Out-of-towners and locals will be out in full force in Times Square as the city says goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013.
If watching the ball drop isn’t your thing, fear not — New York City has plenty of other entertainment options on December 31st. If you are keen to catch another star-studded concert, head to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and watch Coldplay and Jay-Z perform together.
Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more intimate? From cocktails to dance music to comedy and everything in between, there won’t be a restaurant, nightclub or lounge that isn’t hopping. Raise a glass as the clock hits midnight and ring in the New Year in style.
